Tinubu’s Economic Recovery Policy Slowly Yielding Fruits, Says Kogi Senator

Sunday Aborisade in Abuja

The Senator representing Kogi West Senatorial District in the National Assembly, Sunday Karimi, has argued that the proactive economic recovery policies introduced by President Bola Tinubu, were gradually yielding fruits.

He, therefore, pleaded with Nigerians to exercise patience with the administration, claiming that Tinubu inherited a very bad economy on assumption of office on May 29 last year.

Karimi, stated this while speaking at the maiden edition of Igbaruku Day organised by Igbaruku-Okeri Community Development Association (ICDA) in Igbaruku-Okeri, Yagba West Local Council, Kogi State, yesterday.

He said, “Nigerians, irrespective of political affiliations should be patience with the ongoing reformation agenda of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

“The administration inherited the worst economic challenges so far in the anal of the country. The President’s long-term vision driven by proactive policy towards achieving sustainable economic recovery, is slowly yielding fruits.”

The Senator, who is the Chairman, Senate Services, assured Nigerians that the Tinubu’s administration had shown commitment towards rebuilding the economy and make it strong and self-sufficient.

He added, “The process of achieving economic recovery should be seen as a collective effort both by government and the citizenry since government alone cannot make all that is good for the people happen.

“I urge our people to be patriotic and committed to the development of their communities.”

He said if the citizens play their parts, the economic challenges being faced by the current administration would be reasonably addressed with major successes in the short-term.

Karimi said, “The government of President Tinubu inherited a bad, in fact the worst situation, so far. Tinubu met the average gross domestic product (GDP) growth rate of 1.8 percent. The four years average preceding the administration of Tinubu was 15.1 percent.

“Nigeria was so bad that government printed money without activities to back it up. It is still our government, All Progressives Congress(APC). We admit that. Nigerian Naira was almost turned to paper, where one US Dollar equated N1,900 but the Tinubu’s government is not resting on its oars.

“It is working tirelessly every day to find solutions to the problems. Today, one Dollar equals N1,300. Port Harcourt refinery is back; Warri refinery is back. With patience with President Tinubu, we will live to see the Nigeria of our dream, in the short-term.”

Karimi, stated that the purpose of gatherings like Igbaruku Day was to bring people together to work towards a common goal of improving the quality of lives and standards of living in their communities.

While also reiterating his resolve towards the infrastructural development of Kogi West, the Senator informed the people of his effort towards ensuring that the Iluhagba-Egbe Federal Trunk A Road was given a facelift.

He promised that the palliative repairs ongoing would resume very shortly so as to help ease the transportation of farm produce as well as improve the economy of the area.
