Ex-Minister of State for Works, Senator Dayo Adeyeye, has said the President, Bola Tinubu, has demonstrated capacity to lead in his first 100 days in office.
Adeyeye, who is the National Coordinator of South-West Agenda for Asiwaju, a political group that canvassed for Tinubu in the 2023 presidential election, spoke in Osogbo, Osun State on Tuesday at the distribution of bags of rice donated by SWAGA to residents, to cushion the effects of fuel subsidy removal.
According to him, before the presidential election, the group had told Nigerians to support Tinubu, as he possessed the right attributes of the kind of leader Nigeria needed to turn out its fortune.
He however said after 100 days in office, there was no reason for regret, adding that the fortune of the country would further improve in the distant future under Tinubu’s watch.
He said, “In the last 100 days, Tinubu has demonstrated tremendous capacity for leadership. He (Tinubu) said in India that Nigeria has human resources, but we lack leadership but he has come to offer himself.
“In the last 100 days, he came in and announced stoppage of paying fuel subsidy which was a huge scam organised by the state that has affected the economy of Nigeria in the worst manner possible. He stopped that. we are seeing the result of that. We can see that we have been making other countries rich. This decision is attracting foreign investors.
“I believe that in the next few months, we will see more good on the reforms that Asiwaju has put in place.”
Speaking on the decision by the group to make available food for the residents of Osun, a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress in the state, Ayo Omidiran, said SWAGA decided to make available food items for the people to make them happy.
Omidiran also said beneficiaries of the gesture were not only APC or SWAGA members, as people who were not even members of the party were also given food.
