Fixing Nigeria requires patience - Senator Yar'adua

The lawmaker representing Katsina Central Senatorial District in the National Assembly, Rtd Col. Abdul’aziz Musa Yar’adua , has said that fixing Nigeria is hard work, appealing to Nigerians to exercise patience with President Ahmed Bola Tinub u, assuring that he will stir the country back to the path of progress in due time.

Sen. Yar'adua commended the President for promptly stopping dual foreign exchange and fuel subsidy regime and working hard on palliatives to reduce the hardship on Nigerians.

The younger brother to late President Umaru Musa Yar'adua who spoke to journalists shortly after holding a meeting with members of his constituency in Katsina said: “President Tinubu has started on the right footing, what is important is to deal with those challenges that the country is currently facing, especially that of insecurity and the economy, which he is doing already.

"Nigerians must exercise patience and avoid rushing the new President. It is not an easy task governing a country like Nigeria. "Of course Nigerians have high expectations from him but they should be patient and stop counting whether he has spent 30 or 40 days. What matters is that he deliver for the country in four years.

“And we should know that governance is not something you do in a blink of an eye. It takes time to plan if you want to do right things and that is what he (Tinubu) is doing.

“You can see the President has already set up an ad hoc committee on tax reform; this should tell you that the President is serious. He wants to make sure that things work in this country and he wants to make sure that we stop borrowing and we have a tax reform that will be very friendly to Nigerians.

“We as senators and members of the National Assembly will give him all the support that he needs to succeed; that is why we are there to represent Nigerians."

The senator also charged the new service chiefs to stay focus and do the needful to ensure the country's safety even as he vouched for their competence and qualifications to carry out their assigned duties.

Yar’adua, a contemporary of the military top brass until his retirement into partisan politics, said: “I don’t think any Nigerian should be worried; what is important is just know that all service chiefs are good, I have interacted with them in several fora when I was in the military.”
