A national leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Tinubu, on Wednesday called on Nigerians to be more patient with the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration, observing that some ‘enormous challenges’ have hindered it from achieving its desired promises.
Tinubu stated this while speaking during a meeting with APC’s National Working Committee, NWC, in Abuja on Wednesday.
Noting that Buhari was no magician, the APC chieftain said the change drive of the president has so far been affected by challenges in the different sectors of the economy, hence the need to be more patient with him.
His words: “The challenges faced by our government and the president is enormous. It is only because people are not paying attention to the various statistics that are available and we have to push that I won’t touch those areas yet.
“The challenges of security, the challenges of reforms, re-engineering the finances of this country, stopping the corruption and challenging the status quo to change and reform ourselves is there. It doesn’t go away over night. You work on and work hard at it.”
He continued: “We have never govern before, but governed the confidence of Nigerians to govern. We have a creed to really serve the country, change and reform the country.
“It is not easy to have those changes implemented like instant curfew. We have to grow it and face challenges. I sympathize with us and we should equally look at ourselves. Since we won the election, the expectations have been very high and the good will was extremely high. But where are we today?
“The solution is to seek opinion and advice on the various complex around some states or if there is any national one, to reconcile, move the party in a cohesive manner and reposition if need be, we should build confidence among ourselves.”
