President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has said he is fully aware of the current economic hardship in the country and takes full responsibility for the effect of his policies.

He pleaded for patience from Nigerians for the difficulties they have been experiencing on account of government policies and gave the assurance that there was light at the end of the tunnel.

Tinubu who spoke in Akure, Ondo state during his visit to Pa Reuben Fasoranti, leader of Afenifere, stressed that he would not complain but welcome all criticisms since he was the one who asked to be Nigeria’s President.

The statement read:

“We are meeting our obligations to the international community.

To lenders, we have not defaulted, and we are not going to default.

We are navigating the twists and bends on the road to Nigeria’s prosperity.

“But, through perseverance, Lagos emerged as the fifth largest economy in the entire continent of Africa.

We must manage this moment with wisdom and grow Nigeria RESPONSIBLY.

I campaigned for this office to serve Nigeria’s interests and I was elected.

Some said I would not last in the tribunal and came up with all sorts of predictions, but even when in court, I remained focused.

“We cannot allow Nigeria’s economy to be exploited.

We cannot abandon our economy to marauders.

I am determined to re-engineer our finances and curb selfish interests permanently”.
