Osun House of Assembly member, Mr Olatunbosun Oyintiloye, has advised Nigerians to support President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration in tackling the challenges facing the country. Oyintiloye, who is the Chairman, Committee on Information and Strategy in the assembly, gave the advice in an interview in Osogbo on Friday.
He said that the economic challenges facing the country required proper evaluation before effective changes could be made, adding that everyone’s positive input was needed to sort out the problems. He said that it was unfair for Nigerians to judge Buhari so soon, adding that the president needed the support of all Nigerians to achieve his planned economic policies and ideas.
Oyintiloye, who represents Obokun Constituency on All Progressives Congress (APC) platform, expressed delight that efforts of the Federal Government on security and anti-corruption programme were yielding positive results.
He said that the environment Nigeria found itself at the time Buhari assumed office was “most unfriendly, internally and externally’’. He therefore appealed to Nigerians to be patient with the president, assuring that the challenges facing the country would be things of the past soon.
“President Buhari we all know is a man of integrity; he will fulfil all his campaign promises. “All we need to do is to give our support, be patient with him and continue to pray for him to succeed.
“The president is trying his best to create conducive environment to reassure Nigerians that the country will be great again,’’ he said. Oyintiloye, however, urged the three tiers of government to initiate policies that would promote locally produced goods. He said that promoting locally-produced goods would help government and private sector in creating jobs for jobless youths as well as improve the economy.
