The National Chairman of the South-West Agenda for Asiwaju, Senator Dayo Adeyeye, on Monday, assured that Nigerians would soon start seeing the gains of the decisions and economic agenda of President Bola Tinubu.
Adeyeye, who said that Tinubu meant well for the country and its citizens, said the decisions that the President had taken, including the removal of fuel subsidy, were to prevent a horrible situation in the country and to steady the country on the path of development.
The former Minister of State for Works spoke in Ado Ekiti during the distribution of palliatives to SWAGA members and vulnerable citizens across the 16 local government areas of Ekiti State.
Adeyeye said, “The present circumstances in the country informed our decision to reach out to the people, especially looking at the inflation on essential commodities, and we felt that we needed to ameliorate the hardship of the people, and that is why we presented succour to the masses of the state, especially our members.
“I am absolutely convinced that Nigerians have taken the right decision in voting for Tinubu. And let me say that everything that will bring great gain will bring a lot of pain at the beginning; that is the mark of leadership.
“If these decisions are not taken now, it will be at a time when the naira will be like N5,000 to a dollar; not only that, you will not see the fuel, and there will be queues with high costs everywhere.”
He assured that Tinubu’s Renewed Hope Agenda for the economy, education, infrastructure, and other sectors was on course, saying, “As time goes on, we will begin to see the gains of these decisions in our economy, and things will start shaping up. The government will create an enabling environment for people to thrive and ultimately enhance the socio-economic development of the country.”
The SWAGA chief said that the first 100 days of the presidency had been impactful and commended by stakeholders, including international communities.
Adeyeye, who said it was the president’s prerogative to appoint the number of ministers he needed, said, “The Constitution did not stipulate the number of cabinet members the President can appoint; it only specified that you can appoint from every state of the federation.”
The chairman of the SWAGA Palliatives Committee, Ayo Omidiran, who said the gesture was targeted at giving back to the people who stood by the party during the election, solicited support for the President as he unfolded his agenda for the country.
