Nigerians are undergoing hardships for their unborn generations to enjoy prosperity – Tinubu

Published

on

President Bola Tinubu says Nigerians’ current hardship is for the unborn generations to enjoy greatness and prosperity.

Mr Tinubu, who stated this while at the opening of the annual conference of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) in Abuja, said Nigerians cannot have the type of country they desire without the reforms his government initiated.

“It is painful at the beginning, in the short and medium term, but we must do what we have to do to take this nation to its great destiny,” said the president.

“It is not about you, and it is not about me. It is about our generations yet unborn, for whom we must bequeath a great and prosperous country,” he added.

Mr Tinubu explained that the prosperity Nigerians require would only occur once “poverty is banished from the society” with the focused cooperation of the country’s private sector leaders.

He believes the hard decisions of his government would set the country on a growth trajectory, even when Nigerians would suffer the consequences but benefit from it later.

“We must make the very difficult changes that are necessary for our country to get up from slumber and be respected among the great nations of the world,” Mr Tinubu added.

Since his assumption of office on May 29, the hardship citizens faced was compounded by the removal of fuel subsidy, which further resulted in the skyrocketing costs of fuel, transportation, and commodities.

Mr Tinubu, during his inauguration, announced an end to the payment of subsidies on fuel, noting that only the rich were benefiting from the opportunity at the expense of the poor in the country.

Tension mounted in Rivers State on Monday as youths occupied the Degema Local Government Area headquarters, demanding that the council chairmen vacate office.

The youths, who were seen singing war songs, barricaded the entrance and vowed to remain until Wednesday.

The crisis follows the expiration of the tenure of local government chairmen in the state, with the chairmen refusing to step down citing a new law passed by the state House of Assembly.

The law empowers them to extend their tenure by six months, a move opposed by Governor Siminalayi Fubara.

In a similar development, youths stormed the Asari-Toru Local Government Area headquarters, occupying the building and vowing to resist any attempt by the council chairman to remain in office.

The situation was tense but peaceful, with security operatives deployed to maintain order.

Meanwhile, the outgoing chairman of Eleme LGA, Obarilomate Ollor, warned those eager to throw him out of office not to come close to the council, threatening to unleash terror on such invaders. “Some people are ganging up, they want to use force to enter into the local government, If you go there against the law, what you will see you will not believe it.”

The police have urged everyone to maintain peace in the state, with the spokesperson, Grace Iringe-Koko, saying “Our men were on a show of strength this morning. We are still monitoring the situation.”
