President Bola Ahmed Tinubu said he is acquainted with the fact that many Nigerians are going through a rough patch this time.
Tinubu made this known on Wednesday when he met with his colleagues, the first set of state governors in the fourth Republic at the Villa.
Speaking to his guests, the President said the current tough time is a necessary evil that would later engender good time, saying, “I understand that our people are suffering, yet there can be no childbirth without pain. The joy of childbirth is the baby. Relief comes after the pain. Nigeria is being reborn. It is a rebirth of the country for the largest number, over a few smugglers.
“Please tell the people to be a little patient. The palliative is coming. I am doing the arithmetics. I don’t want the cash transfer to fall into the wrong hands. I know it pinches and it is difficult. In the end, we will rejoice in the prosperity of our country.”
