No 24-Hour Magic Solution Promised

He emphasized that the administration’s focus is on taking courageous decisions, acknowledging any unintended consequences, and having the determination to address them.
Tinubu’s Demonstrated Commitment
Oshiomhole praised President Bola Tinubu for his commitment and decisive actions, such as the withdrawal of subsidies and the acknowledgement of the need to adjust wages in the formal sector. He also mentioned the allocation of funds to support vulnerable populations, highlighting the President’s dedication to tackling critical issues facing the nation.
