Nigerians, learn not to think of your country negatively – Tinubu

President Bola Tinubu has urged Nigerians not to think negatively of the country, but to rather be committed to making the nation great.

The President made the call while speaking at the launch of the 3,112 housing units in Abuja on Thursday, February 8, 2024.

Tinubu stressed that the people should be committed to seeing the greatness and hope in the country and just like the Super Eagles at the ongoing AFCON tournament, be optimistic of always winning.

He said: “Don’t think of your country negatively, before I left home this morning, I asked for the pledge, a page out of it and we have to relaunch it, relaunch it to be committed to the greatness, the hope of our country, it is our country!

“You pledge to Nigeria your country, my country to be faithful, loyal, and honest, to serve Nigeria with all your strength, you saw it on the field of play yesterday, you are all rejoicing. Every one of us loves victory, we love to win when you are positive and hopeful Nigeria is winning.”

Meanwhile, in another news…

The All Progressives Congress (APC) has faulted criticism of President Bola Tinubu by the Peoples Democratic Party candidate, Atiku Abubakar and his Labour Party counterpart, Peter Obi.

APC National Publicity Secretary, Felix Morka asked the duo to give suggestions to the President on how to effectively run the economy and governance.

He said it is not enough for the two presidential candidates to just condemn what the government is doing, but they should also share ideas.

Morka said; “Opposition politics is not necessarily about condemning. These individuals, Peter Obi and Atiku Abubakar, touted some of the economic policies this government is running with to be at the core of their economic agenda.

So what has happened? So it is not enough to just condemn, these leaders should be able to, assuming they have the silver bullets this government is not deploying, they point it out.

It is not enough for Atiku Abubakar to bandy words. I expect a man who thinks deeply as he claims about governance, economy, and other aspects of our natural life to offer ideas, concrete suggestions”.
