President Bola Tinubu has been urged to assemble competent economic team that can proffer solutions to the current economic quagmire in Nigeria.
A Muslim cleric and the Chief Imam of Afin Akoko Ansar Ud Deen Society of Nigeria, Sheik Amidu Yayah Yusuf, made the call during a public lecture at Afin Akoko.
This is just as the Olubaram of Ibaram Akoko, Oba Olusegun Atibioke called on Nigerians to imbibe truth, honesty and dedication to duties as the quickest means to return morals, decency and good governance to Nigeria.
Sheikh Amidu said the seemingly unending economic crisis in the country can be overcomed if competent, committed and honest experts are put in place for the purpose of economic revival.
The Muslim leader wants government to take seriously the issue of agriculture, local manufacturing and mining of natural resources, as a better and faster means of getting the economy on a sound path.
He commended the NLC and TUC for calling off the nationwide strike without allowing it to cripple the nation’s socio economic activities.
Sheik Yaya appealed to the federal government and employers of labour in the country to always consider labour-friendly policies that can transform the country and make the naira to be stronger.
The Muslim cleric who decried the high inflation rate resulting in skyrocketing prices of commodities in the society, however appealed to Nigerians to be patient, enduring and persevere as he assured them that the ailing economy will come out stronger.
He urged religious leaders to join hands in the crusade of speaking well of Nigeria.
On his part, the Olubaram of Ibaram Akoko said good virtues and attributes are declining daily in Nigeria, particularly from the family setting and communities.
The monarch called on parents, schools, churches and other religious organisations to restrategise and ensure children imbibe good morals in order to build a strong nation devoid of criminals.
He charged youths to shun all forms of vices and criminal tendencies as they will lead them to a very catastrophic end.
