President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has accepted full responsibility for the economic challenges facing citizens of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. He disclosed this at a meeting with the Yoruba Elders today.

Tinubu met with the leadership of the pan-Yoruba socio-cultural groups, Afenifere, at the house of their leader, Pa Reuben Fasoranti, today in Akure, Ondo State capital.

At the meeting, the president said his administration is working to ensure that Nigeria is reformed for greater efficiency with a particular emphasis on systematically inculcating fairness and equity in all aspects of national life.

He, also, emphasized his commitment to leading Nigeria towards economic and social prosperity.

He said, "Nigeria will survive the current economic challenges. There is light at the end of the tunnel. I requested the job, and I am not complaining about it. I take full responsibility.

"We are meeting our obligations to the international community. To lenders, we have not defaulted, and we are not going to default. We are navigating the twists and bends on the road to Nigeria’s prosperity.

The president said he was aware of the economic hardships caused by his policies since inception. He, therefore, promised that the challenges are temporary, and there is light at the end of the tunnel.

President Tinubu said what is happening today, to his administration in Nigeria is not much different from what he experienced when he was serving as Lagos State Governor.

He said, "The economic challenges we have endured since assuming office are not new to me. As the former governor of Lagos State, I faced similar calls for my resignation. But, through perseverance, Lagos emerged as the fifth-largest economy in the entire continent of Africa. We must manage this moment with wisdom and grow Nigeria responsibly.

"I campaigned for this office to serve Nigeria's interests, and I was elected. Some said I would not last in the tribunal and came up with all sorts of predictions, but even when in court, I remained focused.

"We cannot allow Nigeria's economy to be exploited. We cannot abandon our economy to marauders. I am determined to re-engineer our finances and curb selfish interests permanently," he stated.

Speaking on behalf of Afenifere, Pa Olu Falae, a former Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), who read the address of Pa Fasoranti, commended President Tinubu for his commitment to Nigeria's progress and expressed support for his administration's efforts.

"You have kept your word to return to this place where we all prayed for you, and this shows that you are a man of your word," the elder statesman stated.

Pa Fasoranti asked President Tinubu to be fair and courageous, declaring that such traits were the hallmark of the Afenifere family.

"Today, you are carrying our flag. We are noted for integrity, competence, fairness, and courage. Your performance so far has shown that you understand the full gravity of your mandate, which is to show the Nigerian people that a good government is possible," he said.
