Chief of Staff to the President, Femi Gbajabiamila, has said that the only thing on President Bola Tinubu’s mind is addressing the insecurity issues and economic hardship confronting Nigerians.
Gbajabiamila said the president’s decision to remove subsidy is a crucial part of his reforms that had to be implemented, adding that the benefit will soon materialise.
The former lawmaker spoke on Saturday, February 3 after he voted in the House of Representatives by-election at Polling Unit 014, Ward 08, at Elizabeth Fowler Memorial School in the Surulere area of Lagos State.
Addressing journalists, the CoS said; “The President has no other thing on his mind than how to address the issue of insecurity and economic hardship.
“Tinubu has his gaze fixed on solving the problems. He met a lot on ground; we’ve had these issues for years, and I think we have somebody who would address those issues and address them well.”

Primate Elijah Ayodele of INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church has urged President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to solve the economic hardship in the country with immediacy rather than wait until Nigerians start stoning him.
The religious leader warned the president to treat the worsening economic situation as a top priority of his administration because it keeps getting worse with each passing day.
Ayodele conveyed the message in a statement released by his media aide, Oluwatosin Osho, as he predicted that there will be massive protests if Tinubu doesn’t solve the challenges.
He said people are hungry and salary earners can no longer sustain themselves with their earnings. The cleric stressed that he needs to get to work and not to wait till people start every poitician.
Primate Ayodele said; “If Tinubu doesn’t get to work immediately and find a way to solve our economic issues, there will be massive protests. The people are crying already, salary earners are not satisfied and it will get to a state where governors will not be able to pay salaries again.
Don’t wait till they start stoning you and every politician before working, you need to do something now; there is serious hunger in the land. It will also affect some African nations. The president should do the needful”.
