GIVE TINUBU MORE TIME, SEVEN MONTHS NOT ENOUGH, MINISTER BEGS NIGERIANS

The Minister of Information and National Orientation, Mohammed Idris Malagi, has called on Nigerians to be patient with the reforms of President Bola Tinubu.

The minister said President Tinubu is just seven months old in office, and the dividends of the long-term plan cannot be known in a short time.

Malagi made this statement during an appearance on Channels TV Sunrise Daily, on Thursday.

He explained that the president’s vision is clear: to take Nigeria to ‘the desired prosperity.’

“I want you to remember that the President is seven months old in office. I am not going to make excuses that seven months is just a short time.

“But for a long-term plan, you need a lot more time to put structures in place. But of course, as you trudge along, there will be shocks, turbulence, and occasional dislocations that you would find. But the vision of the president is very clear: he wants to take Nigeria to the desired prosperity,” he said.

During his inauguration address on May 29, 2023, President Tinubu announced fuel subsidy removal, stressing that subsidy could no longer justify the ever-increasing cost of Petroleum and that the funds would be re-channelled into better investment in public infrastructure, education, health care, and jobs.

Malagi further said that the Nigerian vision is to have a nation that is safe, secure, and equitable, and emphasizes merit.According to him, it would be a tedious journey for Nigeria, and only the building blocks can be laid in seven months for the country to get to the desired point.
