Hardship: Bear with Tinubu, Malagi begs Nigerians 

The Minister of Information and National Orientation, Alhaji Mohammed Idris Malagi, Thursday, appealed to Nigerians to bear with President Bola Ahmed Tinubu over his various policies aimed at stimulating Nigeria’s economy. 

Malagi spoke in Abuja at the public presentation of “Dis Life No Balance; An Anthropology of Nigerian Diaspora Voices,”  a book, co-authored by Professors Farooq Kperogi, Moses Ochonu,  and Dr. Osmund Agbo. 

The minister admitted that Nigerians were experiencing some discomfort over the development and   noted that the move was to reset the country’s economy,  saying the president’s Renewed Hope Agenda is on course. 

While noting that the measures put in place by the president will deliver economic prosperity in the long run, the minister said: “The Renewed Hope Agenda of Mr. President is on track.

“The president, of course, you know, has made it a duty to reset the economy by first removing the first subsidy on the day one of his assumption of office. He also went ahead to remove the multiple exchange rates that we’ve had in this country all to unify the currency and make sure that there is no duplicity in the way our economy is being managed. 

“We know that Nigeria is going through some discomfort, but the president has put in place some measures to push on that and longer measures have been put in place for the long run. 

“So, please bear with the President. So much is going to happen,  and measures have started to be rolled out. The conditional cash transfer is already being implemented.

“He also implemented all these to provide a good enabling business environment for the benefit of all. The overall objective is that economic prosperity that all of us deserve for this country will be delivered to Nigerians in the long run.”
