Nigerians not the only ones facing poverty — President Tinubu

Published

President Bola Tinubu has stated that while poverty and suffering exist in the country, Nigerians are not the only ones facing these challenges.

The President said this in Lagos when he received a delegation from the National Assembly who came to felicitate with him on the occasion of Eid-el Kabir on Monday evening.

The delegation, led by the President of the Senate, Sen. Godswill Akpabio, included the Deputy Senate President, Sen. Jibrin Barau, and deputy speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon. Benjamin Kalu, among others.

“Yes, there is poverty; there is suffering in the land. We are not the only people facing such, but we must face our challenges. We must find a way to eliminate banditry and terrorism so that farmers can bring out food from the farmland.

If you do not have good roads to bring the food to the population, even if you grow the food and you are losing 60–70 per cent to damages, you will pay the price,” said Tinubu.

Tinubu also restated his commitment not to turn his back on the country despite the challenges. “Good economics at a harsh time is the challenge that we must face. As I said in my speech, no matter how difficult it is and how challenging it can be, I will not turn my back on Nigeria,” Tinubu said.

He challenged citizens to have a change of mindset about Nigeria if the nation is to overcome its current challenges. “The need (for some citizens) to change the rent-seeking mindset and become more productive to the economy is a challenge. There is a need to stop smuggling and all economic sabotage. Why should we have people removing rail tracks and all that, stealing electric cables, and sabotaging the economy?

Clarifications on the Donation of Security Vehicles: IMSG Did Not Buy Brand New Security Vehicles

– The State Only Rehabilitated Broken/Abandoned Security Vehicles.

My attention has been drawn to some mischievous and false information spread by the defeated opposition party members in the state, particularly the PDP, to discredit the government and the #PeoplesGovernor regarding the recent donations of refurbished police vehicles.

Their latest antics involve using one John Okoye, a freelance staff member of a PDP-sympathetic radio station in Owerri, BizzyBody Fm, to spread disinformation and propaganda.

They claim that the #PeoplesGovernor purchased and donated tens of brand new security vehicles a year ago and is doing so again — barely one year later — portraying the governor as wasteful.

It is unfortunate that someone like Mr. John Okoye, considered an intellectual, could be so intellectually lazy as to not even read a common news piece, and worse, spread disinformation and ignorance through the media.

For the benefit of the general public and those who may have been misled, I clarify as follows:

1. The #PeoplesGovernor did not purchase or procure brand new security vehicles for the security agencies.

2. At no point did any state government communication or the governor himself say that the state government procured brand new vehicles. In fact, the governor stated, “We have delivered 11 REFURBISHED Armored Personnel Carriers and 32 operational vehicles to the Nigerian Police Force, Imo State Command.”

3. Rather, the #PeoplesGovernor, being a prudent man who does not encourage waste, rehabilitated old and abandoned security vehicles that were lying idle at various police commands.

4. This decision encourages a maintenance culture among public officials, as broken police vehicles were repaired instead of being abandoned for brand new purchases.

5. The #PeoplesGovernor acknowledged that the vehicles were dilapidated and damaged due to use over time and undertook to repair them so they could be deployed across the state to protect lives and property and fight crime.

6. Just as we take our personal vehicles to the mechanic for repairs, the governor undertook the repairs of broken police vehicles for effective policing.

7. Our governor deserves commendation for being proactive and alive to his executive duties of protecting Imo people’s lives and property, which has made our state relatively peaceful. Any one who has contrary view on this must be viewed and seen as an enemy of the state who is unhappy with the achievements recorded in the security of Imo people in the last few years.

8. Thank you.

Ambrose Nwaogwugwu.
