Mr Olatunbosun Oyintiloye, a Chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Osun, has expressed optimism that President Bola Tinubu will expand the nation’s economy and lift barriers to investment.
Oyintiloye, a member of the defunct APC Presidential Campaign Council (PCC), expressed this optimism in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Sunday in Osogbo.
He said what the president needed from Nigerians in fixing the economy “is a little patience, perseverance, endurance and support.”
The APC chieftain urged Nigerians, both at home and abroad, to have faith in the ability of the president in providing practical steps in solving series of challenges confronting the country.
Oyintiloye said that the president knew what the challenges were before contesting and he was adequately prepared to tackle the challenges.
He said although the various economy policies by the president to put the country’s economy on the rightful part might seem painful, but will put smiles on the faces of the people at the end.
Oyintiloye, a former lawmaker, said that the economic hardship Nigerians were presently facing would soon be a thing of the past.
“It is true that the economy is not in good shape and Nigerians are going through a lot, finding it difficult to live a decent life.
“I believe the president knew this before he offered himself to govern the country and he is well prepared to tackle all these challenges.

”All we need to do is to continue to pray for the president, support him and be patient. There is no doubt that he is capable of fixing the economy.
“President Tinubu is a man with a private sector background. He has worked in the banking and oil sector, and l believe he will use his wealth of experience to fix the nation’s economy.
“The removal of fuel subsidy and the monetary policy of the president will soon put the country on the right part.
“There will be improved electricity, job opportunities, improved security, infrastructure development, housing provision and food security,” he said.
Oyintiloye, while congratulating the president on his victory at the Supreme Court, said that he will now have enough time to concentrate on governance.
The APC chieftain also commended the president for appointing the best hands into his team to move the nation forward and on the mission of his Renewed Hope Agenda for Nigerians.
According to him, the president genuinely expressed his commitment to the renewed hope agenda, when he directed all his cabinet members, during a retreat last week, to sign a performance bond.
“This shows that this government is taking the bull by the horn and putting individuals on their toes to enhancing effective performance and delivering of good governance.
“This will further reaffirm confidence of our people in the present democratic process,” he said.
