Minister to Nigerians: Give Tinubu More Time To Fix Nigeria

President Bola Tinubu’s government is asking Nigerians to be patient while the President works to address the present economic challenges.

According to Minister of Information Mohammed Idris, speaking at a public lecture  Thursday in Lagos sponsored by Punch Nigeria, the  President had set about reforming Nigeria’s economy at breakneck speed on his first day in office as the country’s president on May 29, 2023. But the reforms are yet to yield the desired results, adding to the frustrations of Nigerians.

Minister of Information Mohammed Idris said yesterday that the worsening inflation that has made Nigerians spend more for food and gas amidst a weakening naira is “for good”. “Nigeria is going to turn the corner and the economy will boom again,” he assured.

But he said Nigerians need to give the Administration, already nearing a year, “more time.” In his words, “We know the situation of the economy and how it has affected Nigerians, and the administration of President Bola Tinubu is working to ensure that Nigerian citizens have a better life and we ask for Nigerians to be more patient with him.” The lecture was held at the tony 15-floor Civic Center in a posh neighborhood of Victoria Island in Lagos and attended by some of the best compensated journalists in the nation.
