One Year As President Challenging But Fulfilling – Tinubu

President Bola Tinubu expressed that the past 12 months of his administration have been fulfilling, despite facing several challenges that are being tackled head-on. He shared these sentiments while addressing a delegation of Yoruba leaders of thought at the State House on Friday.

During the meeting, President Tinubu underscored the importance of transformative governance, which he believes should focus on addressing the critical needs of citizens. He emphasized that his administration is dedicated to implementing policies and projects that will have a meaningful impact on the lives of Nigerians.

The president acknowledged the difficulties encountered over the past year but reiterated his commitment to overcoming these obstacles. He highlighted various initiatives and reforms undertaken by his government aimed at promoting sustainable development and improving the country’s socio-economic conditions.

“It has been challenging. It has been fulfilling as well. We took over, and we stopped the bleeding. I can say categorically now that Nigeria is no longer bleeding. And it will not bleed to death, but rather will now move to prosperity. That is the promise that I made to you all, and it is also the charge that you gave me.”

“We are managing to swim through the pond. The current is not a good one. We will turn the tide. We are turning the bend. This, I assure you. I am being very careful. The worst is over for Nigeria. We will prevail.”

“I thank the team who have been working really hard. All I can promise is that we will do whatever it takes. We are determined, and we will work so that all Nigerians can feel the impact of good governance,” the president said.

Tinubu, however, advocated for a more effective local government system that fosters community development and delivers the essentials of governance within a strengthened federal structure.

He assured Nigerians that his administration will ensure they get value for every kobo spent and that his government will leave a lasting legacy of prosperity to future generations while removing the yoke of poor governance and expanding access to qualitative public goods.
