President of the Oodua Progressive Care Initiative (OPCI), Alh Maruff Olarewaju, has appealed to Nigerians to bear with the incumbent government as the current hardship experienced by the people occasioned by the removal of fuel subsidy will be for a short period.
Dr Olarewaju made this appeal in a press statement issued and made available to our Correspondent in Osogbo, the Osun State capital.
He also appealed to Nigerians to be tolerant and give President Tinubu-led government the benefit of the doubt as things will soon be better.
He said, “in these challenging times, when the weight of food scarcity, insecurity, unemployment, and financial constraints burdens our nation, it is crucial that we come together as a united front, standing firm in the face of adversity.
“It is during such trying periods that our resilience, determination, and unwavering spirit will be tested.
“Let us not lose sight of the fact that we have a government led by a visionary leader, Asiwaju Ahmed Tinubu, who is working tirelessly day and night to address these pressing issues and restore the lost glory of our great nation.
“It is imperative that we find solace and strength in this knowledge, knowing that our challenges are not insurmountable and that there is hope on the horizon. The issues we face today are complex and deeply rooted, requiring comprehensive and sustainable solutions.
“Asiwaju Ahmed Tinubu, renowned for his strategic thinking and astute leadership, has demonstrated time and again his commitment to the progress and development of Nigeria. His track record of success, coupled with his unwavering dedication to public service, instills confidence in us that he is more than capable of steering our nation towards brighter days.
“Food scarcity, undoubtedly, is a pressing concern that affects the well-being and livelihoods of countless Nigerians. Asiwaju Ahmed Tinubu understands the urgency of this matter and is actively working towards enhancing agricultural productivity, investing in innovative farming techniques, and creating an enabling environment for farmers to thrive. His vision of a self-sufficient Nigeria, where no citizen goes to bed hungry, is a beacon of hope that guides his every step.
“Insecurity is another critical issue that plagues our nation, causing immense suffering and hindering progress. Asiwaju Ahmed Tinubu recognizes the gravity of this challenge and is committed to equipping our security forces with the necessary tools, resources, and training to combat insurgency, banditry, and other criminal activities. He understands the importance of fostering a safe and secure environment for every Nigerian, irrespective of their background or geographic location.

Asiwaju Ahmed Tinubu understands that job creation and economic empowerment are vital for the progress of our nation. Through strategic policies, investment in key sectors, and the promotion of entrepreneurship, he aims to create an environment that fosters sustainable economic growth, enhances job opportunities, and empowers individuals to achieve their full potential.
“It is essential, my fellow Nigerians, that we remain patient, steadfast, and united as we navigate these trying times. Let us not succumb to despair, but rather channel our energy into supporting the government’s efforts and contributing to the betterment of our nation. Together, we can rebuild, rejuvenate, and restore Nigeria to its rightful place as a beacon of hope and progress in Africa”
The OPCI President further admonished citizens to be hopeful, urging them to stand united, and actively participate in the nation-building process, saying “together, we can overcome the obstacles we face and usher in an era”.
