The Speaker of the Lagos State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Mudashiru Obasa, has said with the steps so far taken by the administration of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu since May 29, 2023 when he took the oath office, Nigeria can be described as a country currently on track for economic recovery and advancement.
Obasa gave this position in a congratulatory message to Nigerians on the occasion of the country’s 63rd Independence anniversary.
In the message made available to OYO NEWS by his media office, Speaker Obasa noted that Nigeria is currently led by Asiwaju Tinubu, a financial expert and who knows how to plug every hole that would ordinarily hinder the country from reaching its goals.
Noting the current challenges facing Nigeria, Obasa encouraged the citizens to be more tolerant at this time and exercise more patience with the hope of a greater destination for the country.
“We collectively understand the state of the country. We also know the sacrifice each of us is making at the moment to see that our nation works for us again”, Obasa said.
“Delightedly, the administration of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu has hit the ground running sorting out the challenges and designing action plans to resolve a whole lot of them. This is what we expect of a Nigerian leader at this time.
“Nigeria has undergone a lot of developmental experiments since 1960 when we became an independent nation. However, just as the experiments went, the country amassed various challenges which became burdensome over the years leading to the clamour for true leadership.
“In the last few months, right steps have been taken by the government, which, if we all work around, would gravitate into producing the right results we all yearn to see and experience.
“We all want to see a country that attracts investors because of the right environment, we aspire to have world-class health services, we clamour for better education for our children, better prospects and employment opportunities. These are all achievable. What we simply need is cooperation with the government of the day.
“Nigeria is on the pathway to greatness. We have to pull together our collective resilience, patriotism and strength to see us through so our country can return to its enviable state in the comity of nations.
“I congratulate every Nigerian citizen today and urge us all to see a blissful future ahead of us,” the Speaker urged.
“At the Lagos State House of Assembly, we have taken various actions, many of them futuristic, which have helped to create a sane environment devoid of the level of criminalities experienced elsewhere.
“We will never sit on these achievements, but work tirelessly to see that each resident of our dear State truly believes in Lagos and its success,” the Speaker added.
