Yoruba Nation: Alawuje urges support for Tinubu amidst steady growth

The National President of the Yoruba Welfare Group, Comrade AbdulHakeem Adegoke Alawuje has called on Nigerians to jettison ethnicity and partisanship to support President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s steady economic growth, as well as improvements in security and social stability. The call came on the heels of the Friday invasion of the Oyo State Secretariat in Ibadan by some men and women who claimed to be members of the Yoruba Nation.

The invaders who were in military uniform claimed to have proclaimed the Independent and sovereign Yoruba Nation and purported to be taking over their territory.

In a statement released to journalists on Sunday, Alawuje said with the rising growth and steady improvements in all facets of life under President Tinubu, the only reasonable thing to do is to support the president who is making Nigerians proud globally to succeed.

The statement reads:
It’s God’s decision to create tongue and teeth together in a place, yet none can successfully and clinically eat meat with ease without the support of the other. So putting different tribes and ethnic groups together inside the Nigerian nation, whether by accident or by design should not be seen as a mismatch. God doesn’t make mistakes. Let’s accept our faith and move forward. The coming together of over 250 languages and ethnic groups, no matter how it came to be, should not be seen as an error, it was God’s design. We should accept it as our destiny and make the best use of the situation.
Irrespective of our ethnicity and religion, it’s time that all progressive minds in Nigeria started celebrating our president and his humble achievements, even as we ask for more.

We have had a series of failed promises and fake leaders in previous governments. However, we’ve seen the commitment and gradual realisation of his promise to address our economic woes and bring down inflation as well as the skyrocketed prices within a year. We are gradually witnessing the fulfilment of his campaign promises.

We are also witnessing the fading, dwindling and muffling of
the criticisms of the opposition because of the sterling performance of the president. The echoes of the Renewed Hope of the President are getting louder by the day with his recent achievements in the rise of the Naira against all foreign currencies.
Global investment bank, Goldman Sachs recently declared Naira as the world’s best-performing currency in March after a deep decline that was caused by two devaluations.

We have all seen how the Central Bank Governor has broken the back of forex speculators. Those who have hoarded dollars now engage in panic sales, afraid of what will happen to the value of their boarded dollars when Mr Olajide Cardoso sells the next forex to the BDCs!
Thank God that those who were earlier expressing regrets for voting for Tinubu in 2023, including some of his loyalists, are beginning to have a change of mind.
We must not forget that President Tinubu is a child of unity. His presidency was the coming together of the North and South. It was the same unity and trust that birthed the victory of President Muhammad Buhari in 2015 that equally brought about, the victory of Tinubu in 2023. Hence, such trust, unity and harmony must be maintained and sustained.

Nigerians must not be swayed by the agony and the vituperations of those who cannot survive as an opposition or be without political office for a single year. They are desperate and are ready to sacrifice the unity and love that were birthed in 2015 and sustained in 2023 for their personal political gain. Those who truly know the essence and values of unity, love and harmony in a delicately cosmopolitan country like Nigeria should not allow them to have their way.

Nigerians like me, who were born in the South but earn their living in the North or those who were born in the North but live in the South cannot afford to keep quiet at this critical stage. It is such people who value unity, love and harmony.

Most of those who are causing trouble or beating the drum of cessation were born, brought up and still earn their living within their regions. They lack experience in other places within Nigeria. Many of them often bribe their way to ensure they do their NYSC scheme within their region whenever they are mobilising to serve outside their region.

They are everywhere. We have them in both the South and in the North. They are largely saboteurs. They may be of age but lack experience that is gained via travelling. Some of these unexposed individuals either harbour religious sentiments, nurse regional bias or are simply politically polluted.

For sure, it will be to the glory of Nigeria and for the betterment of the future of this country if we all jettison tribal, ethnic, religious and political sentiments to team up to acknowledge the achievements of the present government; even as we constructively criticise and engage it in areas where it’s perceived to be lacking, lagging or slacking.

We must not be like those mischievous elements who wait for bad things to happen and are anxious for bad news to spring up. They joyfully celebrate bad news and sad events. Quite unfortunate. What an unfortunate set of people to coexist with.
For those who are still waiting for Naira to fall again, your wish shall not be realised. And for those praying that the level of insecurity rises beyond the control of the government, not realising that it’s the poor masses, the innocent youths and the vulnerable that bear the brunt of insecurity; their prayer shall not come to pass.
