National leader of the Action Congress of Nigeria, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu said Nigerians who have survived the outgoing year have done so through dint of hardwork, perseverance and courage than through the support of the Nigerian government.
In his Christmas message, Tinubu noted that the Federal Government has disappointed many Nigerians because it has failed to deliver on many of its promises, particularly that of transforming their lives.
“This current administration rather than translating its touted transformation agenda into impactful performance has hastened the transformation of most Nigerians into poverty, into a world of unemployment and insecurity.”
Tinubu urged Nigerians not to lose hope and to continue in the spirit of Christmas to make the sacrifices necessary to make Nigeria better.
He enjoined all Christians to continue in steadfast prayers for Nigeria, noting that every good leader needs the support and prayers of the followers to succeed.
“Our faith will never let us down. We must trust in God and pray for a better country. When we pray, God will give Nigeria leaders that are capable, compassionate and committed.”
Tinubu also charged the nation’s current leaders to step back and take stock and thereafter commit to governing this country better.
“The situation our country is in today is both sad and unacceptable. We are as a people without a leader, a country with no trustworthy men at the helm of affairs and a nation lost at sea. Our leaders must commit to a better country, not tomorrow, but beginning now, today because time is not on our side and the continued patience of the people may no longer be guaranteed”, he said.
