Nigerian senator, Adams Oshiomhole, has said that President Bola Ahmed Tinubu did not promise to end the numerous challenges facing the nation overnight.
The lawmaker who represents Edo North (APC) in the senate made the comment on Sunday during an interview with Channels Television, adding that Tinubu is not a magician.
Oshiomhole, however said the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, is still on track with its campaign promises. The former governor of Edo State added that there was never a time it promised a 24-hour solution to Nigeria’s problems.
He expressed optimism that the Tinubu administration would deliver on its promises, stressing that the President had via his recent policies, shown commitment to that effect.
Oshiomhole said; “They know they were not electing a magician. And nobody promised a magical solution. Don’t bother giving me an example. I know what we (APC) promised more than you.
“Whatever is reported, we are the source. We did not promise anyone a 24-hour solution and we did not promise an overnight solution. Can you show me any document where we said ‘in 24 hours, this will be done?’”
Meanwhile in another news….
President Tinubu earlier assured Nigerians that the current challenges and hardship being faced are only temporary inconveniences which will pave the way for the prosperity of the nation.
Tinubu stated this in a heartfelt message while felicitating with Muslim faithful on the Islamic New Year.
The president prayed the incoming Hijri Year 1445 will usher in a more peaceful and prosperous period in the lives of everyone.
Read the statement:
I send my heartfelt felicitations to Muslims in Nigeria and around the world as we witness the end of another Hijri lunar calendar. I pray the incoming Hijri Year 1445 usher in a more peaceful and prosperous period in our lives.
While celebrating the New Year, I implore you, fellow compatriots, to imbibe the important values of patience, perseverance and faithfulness, which were at the roots of the decision by Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) to migrate from Mecca to Madina, 1445 years ago.
As we persevere and struggle to confront our present challenges and the temporary pain we experience, I enjoin you to remain hopeful that there is light and prosperity at the end of the tunnel.
My team and I are leaving no stone unturned in our bid to deliver on the promises we made, in spite of the present difficulties.
As we usher in the New Islamic Year, I urge you all to engage in prayers and supplications to God Almighty to direct and protect our path to greatness and prosperity in Nigeria.
