Tinubu Appoints Special Adviser On Senate Matters

President Bola Tinubu has expressed optimism that Nigeria is on the path to prosperity, stating that the country is no longer bleeding and will not bleed to death.

He made this disclosure when he received a delegation of the Yoruba Leaders of Thought at the State House on Friday, News About Nigeria reports.

The President acknowledged that the past 12 months have been challenging, but his administration has made significant progress despite the presence of some challenges that are being addressed frontally.

He assured Nigerians that his government will ensure they get value for every kobo spent and will leave a lasting legacy of prosperity to future generations.

“We took over, and we have stopped the bleeding. I can say categorically now that Nigeria is no longer bleeding. And it will not bleed to death, but rather will now move to prosperity. That is the promise that I made to you all, and it is also the charge that you gave to me,” President Tinubu said.

He called for a more effective local government system that fosters community development and delivers the essentials of governance within a strengthened federal structure. The President emphasized the need for fiscal federalism and strengthening the system to enhance inclusion and equity for all Nigerians.

The President also urged state governors to take their responsibilities seriously and make the people the focus of their development plans. He emphasized the importance of synergy between the federal and state governments to ensure Nigeria becomes one of the best nations globally.

On local government administration, President Tinubu expressed his commitment to encouraging fiscal federalism and strengthening the system to enhance inclusion and equity for all Nigerians. He warned against making the local government a unitary system by handing all core responsibilities to the federal government, describing such an effort as “criminal” in a federal system.

The President thanked the delegation of eminent Nigerians for their support and urged continuous faith in Nigeria, assuring them that his government would live up to expectations. “I can tell you that Nigeria is no longer printing paper money and deceiving itself that it has a base for survival. Nigeria went through terrible labour pains, but we have seen the baby coming out alive,” the President concluded.

In his remarks, Honourable Bayo Aina, the National Secretary of the Yoruba Leaders of Thought, commended the President for his prioritization of investment in infrastructure across various sectors. He expressed the group’s total commitment to the vision of greatness articulated by the President, which is the destiny of Nigeria, not only within Africa but globally, among the comity of nations before the end of the 21st century.
