All Progressives Congress, APC, National Leader, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has stated that the process of change takes time, assuring that the change agenda of the Federal Government is on course and will soon bear fruits. He described the coming on board of President Muhammadu Buhari as the “cure” Nigeria needs.
Tinubu, who spoke during the 40th Convocation of the Usman Dan Fodiyo University, Sokoto, where he was honored with the Doctor of Business Administration at the weekend, sued for patience, insisting that with Buhari, the country is in the best hands.
His words, “It’s easy for those who are greedy to think that change is easy. Change is not about the comfort of today, but the success of tomorrow. Nigeria was in the roller-coaster of losing hope. Then our party brought cure. Don’t let anyone deceive you, the cure is here.
“The truth today is that Nigeria has the greatest opportunity to get it right with a leader like Mr. Muhammadu Buhari. There is much to fix. President Buhari is committed to fixing them. But he needs your support and patience. He cannot do it alone.
“We must stand beside him or else we may be knocked down and not stand at all. Thus, let us be resolved to see reform and change that will make Nigeria rise as the nation it should be.”
While refuting claims by “nay sayers and negative spinners” that no change was taking place in the country, Tinubu said: “The conscience of our nation has been under attack for many years. We were handed a way of governance in which anything goes and too much went – as if gone with the wind. Our present was squandered and future mortgaged.
