I just supported someone who paid my school fees years ago – Man speaks on suffering in Nigeria

A Nigerian man has revealed that someone who paid his school fees few years ago is currently struggling to stay afloat and survive.

The guy known as @lastuzumakiiii on Twitter, said he had to provide some financial help to his benefactor due to how ‘market forces’ are affecting him.

He was furious that people are still having cordial interactions with supporters of the All Progressives Congress, (APC) under whose government the economic hardship as worsened.

His tweet was in response to an online user that wrote; “The struggle is real outside bro. People are really suffering. Forlorn faces everywhere you look. Never seen anything like this.”

On his part, @lastuzumakiiii tweeted; “I just helped a guy who few years ago helped me pay my school fees but market forces beyond his control are dealing with him right now. He is a shadow of himself And you people on this app want to be laughing with APC fools.”

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

He appealed for patience from Nigerians for the difficulties they have been subjected to 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.

This was contained in a statement by the Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Ajuri Ngelale, titled, ‘President Tinubu: I take full responsibility for the nation; we are building an efficient Nigeria that is inclusive and fair to all Nigerians.’

The President said; “Nigeria will survive the current economic challenges. There is light at the end of the tunnel. I requested the job, and I am not complaining about it. I take full responsibility.

“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”.
