The President-Elect, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has been urged to discountenance various destructive criticisms from the camps of his political opponents and instead, concentrate on the onerous task of setting Nigeria on the path of greatness, as he had vowed to do during his election campaigns.
The Convener/National Coordinator of Social Rehabilitation Gruppe (SRG), a socio-political organisation, Dr. Marindoti Oludare, gave the prop-up in a congratulatory message on the occasion of Tinubu’s 71st birthday.
He said Tinubu’s political antecedent is enough conviction that he is capable of steering the ship of the country to the Promised Land and that “he should not allow tantrums from bellicose election losers to distract him.”
“One thing worthy of commendation is that despite unrelenting attacks and fabrication of lies against his person by those who are still dazed for being defeated in the last presidential election, Asiwaju Tinubu has refrained from engaging in any face-off with them.
“Instead, he keeps hoisting the olive branch and asking them to come team up with him with a view to taking Nigeria to her Olympian heights, and we encourage that he sustain the tempo,” Oludare advised.
Oludare, a US-based medical doctor and toxicologist, also tasked the President-elect to stick to his plan to assemble a water-tight Federal cabinet and handlers for other critical agencies, departments and parastatatals, noting, “Your administration is coming on a rescue mission, and with you at the head, I’m confident that Nigeria is on the path of a glorious era.”
He particularly urged the President-elect to ensure Nigeria attain true Federalism, which has been the hallmark of his political struggle in the 4th republic, and through the setting up of State Police and devolution of more powers to constituent states to accelerate community development.
He also appealed to him to arrest and reverse the plummeting exchange rate, use his renowned strategic and tactical acumen to rid Nigeria of fraudulent subsidy regime which had besieged the country for over five decades, and overhaul critical sectors like Industry, Education, and Health, to reverse subsisting brain-drain trend and attract investors towards enhancing job provision and lifting Nigeria’s tottering Gross Domestic Product (GDP) rating.
