Babajide Sanwo-Olu, governor of Lagos, has asked Nigerians to support President Bola Tinubu’s administration.
Sanwo-Olu spoke on Wednesday after paying a courtesy visit to Oluremi Tinubu, first lady of Nigeria.
The Lagos governor said hard decisions must be taken to move the country to a level where every Nigerian can be comfortable, adding that there would be light at the end of the tunnel.
“We have to continue to encourage and support him and encourage our citizens as well that we see a bright light down the tunnel. Not doing anything is not an option,” Sanwo-Olu said.
“So, in the course of doing things differently, there will be belt up here, there will be tightening there, but at the end of the day we believe the result that comes out of those reforms will improve the quality of life and make things a lot better for our citizens and the economy will continue to grow in the direction that we are all appreciative of.”
Sanwo-Olu also commended the first lady for empowering women and other vulnerable groups in society through her Renewed Hope Initiative (RHI).
In June, the first lady launched the RHI to empower women, youth and children in the country.
Sanwo-Olu said the programme would complement similar policy objectives of Tinubu’s Renewed Hope Agenda.
“We have to encourage her on the Renewed Hope Initiative which we have all heard about, which she is championing with other first ladies and of course the wife of the vice-president, because it complements what Mr. President is doing,” he said.
“I think she is really great with her focus on schools and to be able to provide succour for the people that are vulnerable.”
