President Tinubu Restates Commitment To Restructuring Nigeria

Nigeria’s President, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has reassured Nigerians of his commitment to restructuring Nigeria in a manner that every citizen will experience good governance.

The President gave the assurance while  hosting some Yoruba elders, who paid him a courtesy visit at the Presidential Villa, Abuja onTuesday.

National Publicity Secretary of Afenifere, Comrade Jare Ajayi, disclosed this shortly after the visit.

The delegation was led by Chief Reuben Famuyide Fasoranti, OFR, the Afenifere Leader who is also Asiwaju Yoruba.

On the entourage of Pa Fasoranti were leaders from all Yoruba speaking states of Oyo, Osun, Ogun, Ondo, Ekiti and Lagos including Kwara and Kogi States, Daily Post reports.

President Tinubu, while responding to the address presented by Oba Olu Falae on behalf of Chief Fasorant, said he was highly impressed by the visit as it made him emotional describing the coming of the Afenifere to him in Abuja as ‘a defining moment’.

On the specific issues raised by the Afenifere Leader, the President said, “I have listened to your advocacy (on restructuring etc). What you believe in is what I believe in. Constitutional democracy has been reflected since we took over.”

He stated that there is a pressing need to lay a solid foundation for an enduring project like Restructuring.

Specifically, President Tinubu declared that the economy of the country needs to be re-tuned, revamped and re-engineered.

“When the economy is properly on a firm footing, steps will be taken on restructuring so that it would be on a solid foundation.

“As I said in Akure, our approach to it would be as a if a baby is learning how to walk. If the baby is rushed, it will fall. Because we don’t want to fall, and we are not going to fail, we want to do it and do it right,” he said.
