A Former General Secretary of the Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers, Chief Frank Kokori, has appealed to Nigerians to give President Bola Tinubu enough time to take the country out of its present economic dilemma.
Kokori who made this call while answering questions via a telephone conversation with newsmen, noted that it was too early to apportion blame on Tinubu’s four-month-old administration, after years of economic decadence, acquired by his government.
According to the former NUPENG Secretary, The President had not done badly in four months, in a bad economy which had been destroyed for the past 16 years.
“The economy has been bastardized for years; we don’t have foreign reserves, we service our loans with over 90 per cent of what we are getting; we don’t manufacture anything.
“Bad governance ruined the country for the past 16 years. Nigerians should give Tinubu some time; they are planning. The people are suffering too, and that is why they are given palliatives.
“We should give Tinubu time; the economy has been so battered. We have borrowed money all over the world. Four months and you want him to perform magic?
“The political acrimony in this country is too much. This new government is serious if we can give them time. I trust them,” Kokori said.
