Ogun Governor Urges Nigerians to Give Tinubu More Time
By Bliss Okperan
The Governor of Ogun State, Mr Dapo Abiodun, has asked Nigerians to give President Bola Tinubu more time, saying he has performed well in office since taking over on May 29, 2023, noting that he inherited an almost comatose economy from former President Muhammadu Buhari.
“The President Tinubu-led administration has been very bold and audacious. They’ve taken the bull by the horns. They’ve done what no government has done in the history of Nigeria,” Mr Abiodun said during an interview on Channels Television’s Sunday Politics show.
Recall that a few days ago on Channels TV, the Governor of Anambra State, Mr Charles Soludo, said the administration of Mr Tinubu took over a “dead economy” from Mr Buhari.
“I said it before. This particular government inherited a dead economy from a microeconomic point of view.
“This government inherited a dead horse that was seen standing but people didn’t know that it was dead. I think it’s important for Nigerians to understand this,” he said.
Speaking yesterday, Mr Abiodun said, “President Tinubu has been able to do what no president has ever been able to do in the history of Nigeria. President Tinubu deregulated the petroleum industry to save Nigerians.”
He urged Nigerians to be patient with the President, saying he is confident in the Tinubu-led administration to tackle the challenges facing the country.
