An Afenifere chieftain, Bashorun Sehinde Arogbofa has called on President Bola Tinubu to make youth employment a top priority.
Arogbofa, who said Nigeria is a beautiful place, also admonished those in government, the legislatives, executives and the Judiciary appointees and civil servants to reduce their appetite for misappropriation of fund for development.
He said if Nigeria will be good and achieve greatness, it will not be business as usual, adding that if they do that, Nigeria will be on the path to greatness.
Arogbofa said” Tinubu alone cannot do it, we need to support him and take it easy with him, he inherited an enormous task, therefore we need to give him breathing space to see what he could do. The citizens should try to see how to play balls. To encourage him and that is not to say ,if we discovered he is going astray that we should not advise him.
“Let us tarry a little, no country can survive through internal coup without heading to wards the rock, let’s be courageous and try to understand him, we know it’s a trying time, a precarious situation, but we must try and understand him,” he stated.
He called on the president to make employment of the youth paramount, as many that are supposed to feed their parents after school are still suffering, also doctors are traveling out in the name of ‘Japa.’
” Unemployment of the able bodied people is one of the greatest problems in the land, there is the need for them to get a good job, so as to be able to feed and also feed their aged parents”he added.
Arogbofa also said insecurity should not be taken with levity as it has caused Nigeria a lot, saying the government should ensure safety of lives as well as food security.
