Tinubu’s daughter asks Nigerians for patience, after President gave her husband lush appointment

Tinubu’s daughter asks Nigerians for patience, after President gave her husband lush appointment

Folashade Tinubu-Ojo, daughter of President Bola Tinubu, has begged Nigerians to be patient over the economic hardship in the country.

“My message to all Nigerians is to please exercise a little more patience. Everything will be alright; it’s just a matter of time.

A few days after her husband, Oyetunde Ojo, was appointed the managing director and chief executive officer of the Federal Housing Authority (FHA), MrsTinubu-Ojo made this call while speaking with journalists at the Lagos State chapter of Aljamahatul Qadiriyyah Islamic Movement’ 2024 Mawlid Nabiyy on Monday.

“We need to keep our hope alive. There is an economic downturn all over the world, and not in Nigeria alone. But we pray Allah will see us through,” Mrs Tinubu-Ojo said.

Mrs Tinubu-Ojo’s statement follows her younger brother, Seyi Tinubu’s plea for citizens to endure the economic hardship and support his father.

Her plea comes as Nigerians protest over spiking food prices across the country.

On Monday, placards-carrying protesters at Mokola Roundabout, Ibadan, demonstrated on the street with inscriptions like ‘End food price hike’ and ‘This is not Hope Renewed. This is shege renewed,” chanting, “Tinubu is thief! Tinubu is thief! “

Similar protests had rocked Niger, Kano, Osun and Lagos as citizens protest over hunger and other hardships.

Analysts say inflation accelerated after President Tinubu’s sudden announcement of the removal of the petrol subsidy in his inaugural speech on May 29, 2023, followed later by the CBN’s policy of floating the naira.

Western-oriented theorists and the Breton wood institutions have lauded Tinubu for the policies but Nigerians continued to wail under its excruciating effects.
