Dapo Abiodun tasked Nigerians to be patient with President Tinubu, says Renewed Hope Agenda is a done deal

Ogun state Governor, Dapo Abiodun has asked Nigerians to be patient with the government of President Bola Tinubu, noting that the administration inherited an “almost comatose” country.

President Tinubu took over the reins of power on 29th of May from Muhammadu Buhari.

But since taking over, Nigerians have continue to witness challenging economic fortunes owing to some econkmic reforms by the new government.

Chiefly among the reforms are the fuel subsidy removal which has led to increase in price of fuel and essential commodities and the floating of the naira.

But Governor Abiodun is optimistic the country would be better off in the long run, and as such, Nigerians should be patient with the Tinubu government.

“The President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s administration has been very bold and audacious. They have taken the bull by the horns. They have done what no other government has done in the history of Nigeria,” he said on Channels Television’s Sunday Politics.

“They have had to deregulate to save Nigerians and they deregulated at a time when the pricing of petroleum was at the largest margin. But knowing fully well, they either did that then or the country would be brought to its knees. Like they said, there can’t be any gain without pain. He has inherited an administration that was almost comatose.”

Governor Abiodun, who is also of the All Progressives Congress (APC), just like Tinubu, is confident a turnaround is close.

“You know our President, besides being a former governor and a senator, he is also an accountant,” he said on the current affairs show.

“So, he is someone who is very spot on and all hands are on deck to turn this economy around. We are very hopeful and we can see the light at the end of the tunnel.”
