Despite the current hardships, Nigerian President Bola Tinubu has promised that brighter times are on the horizon.
While hosting Muslim leaders from the Southwest on Friday, October 20th, Tinubu emphasized that sacrifice will be necessary to restore Nigeria.
Tinubu said that the removal of the fuel subsidy was done to prevent the collapse of Nigeria while speaking to a delegation led by the President of the Ummah, Rasaki Oladejo, at the State House in Abuja.
… he said
We can’t split our allegiances; our faith must be in Nigeria. Our best efforts will lead to improved economic conditions for all Nigerians.
I know it for a fact, and we are working hard to make it so. This is crucial for our future. Assuredness of our future is an essential. God Almighty will not test us with something we can’t handle.
There is a reason He has us here, he says. It may seem challenging, even rough, but things will improve. For forty years, we managed to put off doing away with the petroleum subsidies.
“We are all suffering now, but removing the subsidy was necessary to keep Nigeria from collapsing.”
