President Buhari has appealed to Nigerians yet to feel the impacts of his Administration to please be patient.
President Buhari made the appeal at a town hall meeting with the traditional rulers, youths, students, organised labour, market women and other stakeholders on the #EndSARS protest and its aftermath in Ilorin, Kwara state today November 6.
Represented at the town hall meeting by the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, President Buhari said his administration has the interest of the youths and the people in general at heart and has been doing a lot to touch their lives. The president said the government is constraint by the dwindling resources occasioned by the impact of COVID 19 which also affected the global economy.
“If we have not done enough or we have not touch everybody, we appeal that you please bear with us. In the first instance, what we have is less than 60 per cent of the revenue that was available to other governments that came before us. We all know what we suffered during COVID 19, and as we are just trying to recover from this we also face another crisis. We appeal that you should please assist the government and be patient.
This government is dedicated to serving the people and we will continue to try our best to do so. I thank you all for your perseverance, understanding and patience”, he said.
According to President Buhari, his administration has many programmes lined up to help in alleviating poverty among women and vulnerable groups as well as creating jobs for the teeming youths.
