What former governor of Lagos State, Ambode said about Tinubu’s underperforming government and Nigeria’s economic hardship


Former governor of Lagos State, Akinwunmi Ambode has enjoined Nigerians to be optimistic about president Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s economic strategies and policies.

Mr. Ambode who spoke at the 2024 Leadership Colloquium and Award organized by Akinjide Adeosun Foundation (AAF) in Ikoyi, Lagos State, noted that the current economic hardship which Nigerians are grappling with, has outlived several government administrations and are results of accumulated leadership challenges over the years.

He pointed out that president Bola Ahmed Tinubu should not be blamed for the economic downturn and that he had the ability to reverse the unpleasant trend if given the needed time.

He further enjoined Nigerians to speak positively about the country noting that the current hardship in the country is the initial sacrifice Nigerians must have to pay for greater days ahead.

He said: “It has nothing to do with the singular person called Mr Presiadent; but if we don’t understand the fundamentals, we will start playing the blame games. We need to face our problems frontally.


“The major issue is that we are even tired of not fixing our issues. Now, we have found somebody that has decided in person of President Tinubu.”

“Until we decide ourselves to say that we should unite for the common cause called Nigeria, the security issues will not go.

“We are all in a position to actually support Mr President, let us start to look at it from a different prism.


“We don’t have to wake up in the morning and talk ill of Nigeria. We get what we profess about Nigeria.”

“We must think out of the box. We have to feed ourselves. When we start to think by ourselves and today we will resolve the issues concerning Nigeria, we will smile,” he added.
