National Coordinator/ Convener, Northern Region Support Tinubu/ Kashim, Hon Dahiru Hammandikko, has appealed to Nigerians to remain calm in the current pains and hardship caused by the removal of the oil subsidy by the President Bola Tinubu administration.

Hon Hammandikko, who was Deputy Director Contact and Mobilization North East PCC during the 2023 Campaign, made the appeal in a statement he personally signed and made available to journalists in Lagos on Thursday.

He explained that the hardship was much now because the decision taken by President Tinubu should have been carried out by successive administration, in the last 15 years.

He, nevertheless, assured that situations would soon improve and that Nigerians would laugh last.

Part of the statement read, “The removal of oil subsidy and the new exchange rate regime of the President Bola Ahmed Tinubu Gcfr for now, has led to inflationary pressure. This is causing some hardship on the part of the masses.

“As the saying goes, there is no gain without pains. Like the president has said that while trying to give birth, one must go through the pains of labour, however when the child is born, the safe birth will keep the mother happy.

“Her pain of a few hours would therefore lead to everlasting joy.

“Nigerians should see the economic reforms of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu from that perspective.

“If President Bola Tinubu has not taken those steps, it could have led to a complete crash of the Nigerian economy with it’s attendant social, economic and political implications.

“The pains we are currently going through, will soon go and by this time next year by the grace of Almighty Allah, Nigerians would begin to see the results of the steps that the president has taken.

“The president is just about 60 days today in office. He still has over 46 more months to spend in his first term of 48 months, having spent just two.

“President Bola Tinubu is taking decisions that should have been taken over 15 years ago.

“Nigerians should give President Tinubu some time, to allow his policies to mature and for us to begin to see the positive effects.

“The president has said he understands the pains of Nigeria, we should just exercise patience, Hon Hammandikko Said.
