The national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Senator Bola Tinubu, at the weekend assured Nigerians that the change agenda of President Muhammadu Buhari was still on course.
Tinubu, while speaking at the Usmanu Danfodiyo University convocation in Sokoto at the weekend where he was honoured with the Honorary Doctor of Business Administration, said the change process requires time especially coming after “the conscience of our nation has been under attack for many years.”
The former Lagos State Governor said: “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.”
Tinubu while pleading for support and patience with the APC administration said “Nigeria has the greatest opportunity to get it right with a leader like Buhari.
“There is much to fix. President Buhari is committed to fixing them. But he needs your support and patience. He cannot do it all 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.
“It’s easy for those who are greedy to think that change is easy. Change is not about comfort of today, but the success of tomorrow. Nigeria was in the rollercoaster of losing hope. Then our party brought cure. Don’t let anyone deceive you, the cure is here,” Tinubu said.
“Nigeria has begun the process of turning to its better self. The government of President Buhari is cleaning out the rot of years of galloping corruption and avarice. This government is also moving to pursue policies that will spark development and bring prosperity to long oppressed Nigerians. Be reminded that this will be a battle. No battle is easy. We must be firm in our resolve to reform this nation. We must have the courage to stand fast in the times of difficulty, having faith that the rightfulness of our cause will see us through to the success of our collective efforts and yearnings,” he added.
