How State Governors Could Avoid Sabotaging Tinubu’s Efforts in Fixing the Economy

President Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has a bold vision for Nigeria’s economy. He calls it the Renewed Hope Agenda, and it aims to transform the country into a prosperous and resilient nation. But he cannot do it alone. He needs the cooperation and collaboration of the state governors and the senior civil servants, who are the backbone of the government.

This was the message of Olatunbosun Oyintiloye, a chieftain of the APC in Osun State, who spoke to journalists on Sunday in Osogbo. He said that the president had initiated various policies and programs to fix the economy, such as the removal of fuel subsidy, the diversification of revenue sources, the investment in infrastructure, and the empowerment of the youth and women.

However, these efforts would not yield the desired results, if the state governors did not play their part. Oyintiloye said that the governors had a responsibility to use their monthly allocation wisely and effectively for the welfare of their people. He said that the allocation was sufficient to lift millions of Nigerians out of poverty and improve their living standards.

He said: “The state governors should not be indifferent or hostile to the president’s economic vision. They should join him in building a better Nigeria for all. They should use their allocation to create jobs, provide social services, and support the vulnerable segments of the society.

“The people are looking up to the governors to deliver good governance and accountability. They should not disappoint them by mismanaging or diverting the funds meant for their development. They should also be transparent and honest about how much they have received and spent since June last year.

“The governors should not be seen as saboteurs or obstacles to the president’s economic vision. They should be partners and allies in the quest for national progress. We are in a critical situation where we cannot afford to waste time or resources on unnecessary bureaucracy or corruption. We need to work together as a team to overcome the challenges facing our economy.”

Oyintiloye also appealed to Nigerians to be patient and supportive of the president, saying that he had the best interest of the country at heart. He said that the president was working hard to deliver on his promises and to make Nigeria a great nation. He said that with the collective efforts of the president, the governors, the civil servants, and the citizens, Nigeria would soon achieve its economic potential.
