In a recent interview with Apple’s Bite magazine, Oyeniyi Shinayomi Daniel gave insight to the values a Tinubu-led administration will bring for Nigerians. The young entrepreneur is CEO of Oju Abuja Amala, the first of its kind dusk-to-dawn restaurant located in the Federal Capital Territory.
“I realised that there have been mixed reactions across board with the current situation of the country’s economy. I must say that it is okay to express every emotion the reality brings to you but we must also have it in mind that the Government is continuum; and the President is already setting all-inclusive principles in process.
“We can see how balanced his appointments have been thus far. He has displayed those highlighted features of ‘Federal Character’. We must have it in mind that the Presidency is not just an individual, it is an institution. So, in order for the President to function, he must converge the right persons. We all know President Tinubu has a penchant in garnering the best minds in Government. He did it in Lagos, which is currently the 6th biggest economy in Africa if it were to be a country. I am very confident in President Bola Tinubu’s possibilities,” he asserted.
The Economics graduate and social commentator further urged Nigerians to rally support for President Tinubu and his administration to thrive. He highlighted benefits the removal of fuel subsidy would bring if Nigerians apply a bit of patience with the administration.
“The fuel subsidy removal is a practical way of showing that we are ready as a country to grow our economy. The Government spends a significant portion of its budget on fuel subsidies, which could be better spent on education, healthcare and infrastructure development, amongst other key sectors. I urge Nigerians to maintain their calm and patience. This Government is still very young and you can already tell that it is a pragmatic Government. Look at some of the bills the President has signed in the last few weeks. They are bills that will impact greatly on us as a nation.”
“The economy would eventually find its balance, regardless. Asiwaju has a very viable economic team. With the likes of Wale Edun and co, I was thrilled when I saw the President’s robust economic plan for Nigeria. Implementing this plan will spur economic growth and reduce unemployment drastically. This only tells you that there is hope for this great nation to make her statement once again as the Giant of Africa,” Mr. Oyeniyi Shinayomi Daniel concluded.
