Following the hardship being experienced by Nigerians due to the fuel subsidy removal, the Ekiti State Deputy Governor, Mrs Monisade Afuye, has assured that the country will be a better place to live under the administration of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
Afuye told Nigerians not to despair over the current economic hardship having a scorching effect on them, assuring that President Tinubu was desperately contriving means of palliating the sufferings of the Nigerian masses.
She described the current economic situation in Nigeria as a phase that will surely pass in a short while and that the policies initiated by the Federal Government will serve as springboards for loftier economic prosperity for all Nigerians.
According to a statement by her media aide, Victor Ogunje, she said this at a church service marking the 12th Anniversary of God of Fire Pentecostal Ministry, Ido Ekiti, Ido/Osi Local Government Area of Ekiti State.
She said Nigeria is currently undergoing a process whereby a new glory is about to manifest, and the people would smile again and give glory to God.
She said President Tinubu is working tirelessly to bring an economic and attitudinal renaissance that will evolve a new Nigeria where things work as obtainable in the advanced climes.
“I know things are very tough, but the APC-led federal government under our father and leader, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, is working assiduously to bring economic rebirth.
“This began with the removal of the fuel subsidy where some had hidden to scam Nigerians of billions of dollars yearly.
“The intention behind the action was to ensure that our money is used for the poor Nigerians and not for a few oil cartel. I am optimistic that the country will bounce back and stand firmly on its feet to bring the goodies that are due for our citizens in no distant time.
“So, I appeal to you, don’t curse your leaders, rather, pray for them to succeed. The present Nigeria under President Tinubu will succeed by bringing the expected economic prosperity to our doorsteps”.
Mrs Afuye appealed to Ekiti citizens to pray for Governor Biodun Oyebanji and support all government policies for his administration to succeed and become a beacon and model to other states of the federation.
“Our Governor, Biodun Oyebanji had met with the leadership of the labour unions and very soon, we will roll out the palliatives that will cushion the effect of this economic policy on you. Don’t be despondent, have hope and faith in us. All shall be well by the grace of God”.
Mrs Afuye urged the church members to always join hands with the prophet for the progress of the church and continually pray for Ekiti State and Nigeria at large.
In his sermon, the founder of the church, Prophet Segun Olabiwonu, pointed out that God was aware of the current economic situation in Nigeria, assuring all and sundry that divine help would soon emerge to deliver the nation.
