Bear with my Administration- Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari has appealed to Nigerians who are yet to feel the impact of his administration and those who believe that the government is not doing enough to bear with the administration.

The President appealed to Ilorin at a town hall meeting hosted by the minister of Information and Culture Lai Mohammed with traditional rulers, youths, students, organized labor, market women, and other stakeholders on the #EndSARS protest and its aftermath.
In the President’s message delivered by the minister, he said the administration has the interest of the youths and the people in general at heart and has been doing a lot to touch their lives.

The President said the government was constrained by dwindling resources occasioned by the impact of COVID-19 which also affected the global economy.
He said: “If we have not done enough or we have not touched everybody, we appeal that you please bear with us.
“In the first instance, what we have is less than 60 percent of the revenue that was available to other governments that came before us.
“We all know what we suffered during COVID-19, and as we are just trying to recover from this we also faced another crisis.
“We appeal that you should please assist the government and be patient.
“This government is dedicated to serving the people and we will continue to try our best to do so.
“I thank you all for your perseverance, understanding, and patience.”

The President said the administration has many initiatives targeted at creating jobs for the youth and alleviating poverty among women and vulnerable groups.
He said the fund is part of the N2.3 trillion economic sustainability plan aimed at cushioning the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on the most vulnerable Micro Small Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) across the country.
On his part, Gov. Abdulrazaq Abdulrahman thanked the President for the initiative of directing ministers to interact with the people at the state level and prayed for peace, unity, and stability of the country.

Governor Abdulrazaq Abdulrahman, the Speaker of Kwara State House of Assembly, Hon. Yakubu Danladi; the Emir of Ilorin, Alhaji Sulu Gambari, and other traditional rulers, representatives of market women, traders, and other stakeholders attended the event.
