Be patient, Tinubu will fix current challenges, Oyebanji tells Nigerians

Ekiti State Governor, Mr Biodun Oyebanji, has assured Nigerians that the administration of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu will fix the current challenges facing the country if the people can exercise patience and support the government.

Governor Oyebanji stated this during the monthly Evening of Praise and Worship programme in Ado-Ekiti. He urged Nigerians to be patient with the Federal Government, calling on the citizens to pray for the administration with the various decisions made to improve living standards. 

He urged the people to maintain peace and decorum as the government is doing its best to lessen the burden of economic hardship on the people with its various people-oriented programmes and policies.

According to the governor, “I just want to encourage us today as children of God to keep faith in God and amplify our prayers for Nigeria, for Ekiti state and the President. I understand what we are going through, but the truth is that the President is not the cause of these crises, but God has prepared him for a time like this. What he needs is our support, our prayers, our understanding and encouragement. 

“I am just pleading with us that the President needs our help, he needs our prayers, we should not do anything to discourage him. We should thank God that we have a man of courage, a man God had prepared for a time like this. I believe in God that we will get out of this problem, and when the time comes when the dividends of these reforms are unravelled, all of us will be alive.

The governor assured Ekiti people that the state would soon experience food sufficiency and become the food basket, judging by the various programmes of his administration.

“We have embarked on a programme that by next year, we will have food sufficiency in this state because, if we don’t make hay now, I pray next year will not be worse off. We must be able to grow ourselves out of hunger, which is what the President told us last week. 

The government will do its bit, but you should be back to the farm. So, no matter how small, let’s start bit by bit. You have to grow what you will eat and at least be able to feed yourself.” He added.
