Lawmaker Begs Nigerians To Give Tinubu Two Year To Fix Economy

The lawmaker representing Yagba Federal Constituency, Kogi State, Leke Joseph Abejide, has asked Nigerians to continue to endure the pains of rising living costs.

The Chairman, House of Representatives Committee on Customs and Excise, said the economic policies the President Tinubu administration is pursuing will fix the problem in no distant future.

The lawmaker said this in Kano over the weekend at a civic reception in his honour as the Asiwaju of Yoruba in Kano.

According to him, “When a woman is in labour to give birth the pain is so much. You see, if you look at the policy the Tinubu administration is putting in place, let us give him at least two years. I know it is a long time for someone not enjoying anything, but in less than two years you will see the impact, the economy is going to be transformed.”

Abejide said President Tinubu is a financial expert who knows what to do to get the desired result.

Speaking on the hardship induced by border closure, the lawmaker said Niger, Mali and Burkina Faso are under military rule and if allowed to go unchecked the trend would affect other West African countries.

He said the border closure had contributed to checking proliferation of light weapons in the country, noting that Nigeria was losing on the trading front because people in those countries cannot come here to buy goods.

“It particularly affects the markets, especially Kano market because majorly Niger, Central Africa and Northern Cameroon depend on Kano market, and people are not finding it easy, but I believe the temporary pains will soon be over,” he added.
