President Bola Ahmed Tinubu stated on Thursday in Lagos that he had the option of continuing the country’s several foreign exchange systems and profiting from them, but he decided to harmonize the official and black market currency rates in order to stop the country’s financial bleeding.

President Tinubu stated in a statement released by the presidential spokesperson, Dele Alake, that he made the decision in the interest of the country, just as he did with the withdrawal of fuel subsidies, while speaking at a civic event hosted in his honor by the Lagos State Government at the Lagos House, Marina.
I could afford to take part in the arbitrage and share the profits, but please, no! You didn’t vote for me for that reason, he said.

The President emphasized the importance of making these important decisions early on in his term.

“We must move quickly to address gasoline subsidies in order to stem the financial hemorrhaging. We are powerless, he said.
According to President Tinubu, the government would “re-engineer the effectiveness of the control and management of our resources in order to meet the obligations to Nigerians by political officeholders” in order to ensure the best possible use of the resources at hand.

The President took advantage of the occasion to ask the governors in attendance for their cooperation in ensuring the equitable development of the nation.

“We will cooperate in an open-door manner. Nigeria’s economy will be turned around from the point of no return. I want us to work together to save our country and restore it to its former glory.

President Tinubu was overjoyed and expressed gratitude to the Lagos State Government for organizing the reception as well as to his friends and associates who attended. He also expressed regret to some of his friends in the audience who, he said, had been eager to see him but were unable to do so due to the demands of his job.

“The task is more important than my affection for the living room. We must do the task, he replied.

While praising visitors, Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu, who was overcome with pleasure, thanked God for putting President Tinubu in charge of Nigeria. He was hailed as a capable manager of both financial and human resources with the Midas touch to restore the nation’s economic fortunes.

Abdulrahman AbdulRazaq, the governor of Kwara State and chairman of the Nigeria Governors’ Forum (NGF), spoke on behalf of the organization and pledged that all state chief executives, regardless of political affiliation, were prepared to collaborate and work with the president to make the nation better and safer for all citizens.

The fact that the President and Vice President are both former members of the Governors’ Forum excites NGF.

We have made a commitment to collaborate with a federalist who has labored to implement a truly federal government. Regardless of our party, we restate our support for the agenda for fresh optimism.

President Tinubu was praised by Senator Godswill Akpabio, President of the Senate, on behalf of the members of the National Assembly for his efforts in facilitating the start of the 10th National Assembly.

“You’ll be successful. You have the support of the National Assembly in full, and Nigerians are proud of you. We will take every legal step necessary to ensure your success, stated Akpabio.

Former Lagos Governor and current Minister of Works and Housing Babatunde Fashola urged on governors and Nigerians not to leave the President to handle the task of recreating the country, insisting that good governance must be implemented in all 36 states.

Going back in time, Pa Tajudeen Olusi, the chairman of the Lagos Governor’s Advisory Council (GAC), said the election of President Tinubu was a kind of restitution for the state, which has made major contributions to the political development of Nigeria since the colonial era of Herbert Macaulay up to the present.
“Those who have ruled this nation received their education in Lagos. We are appreciative that the Nigerian President finally arrived this time from Lagos. We are pleased with the man we have.

Nigerians have praised his strong start and deemed his first 30 days impressive.

The Vice President, Senator Kashim Shettima, the President’s wife, Senator Oluremi Tinubu, the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Senator Abdullahi Adamu, the President of the Senate, Godswill Akpabio, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Special Advisers, Hon. Tajudeen Abass, and the Chief of Staff to the President, Femi Gbajabiamila, among others, all attended the event.

At the event, which was also attended by serving and past governors from across party lines in support of the President, Lagos Deputy Governor Obafemi Hamzat gave the vote of appreciation.
