From Ndubuisi Orji, Abuja
A pressure group, Coalition of Civil Society Groups, has charged Nigerians to be patient with the administration of President Bola Tinubu, as it settles down to the business of governance.
The president of the group, Olakunle Oladimeji, gave the charge, on Tuesday, while speaking at a press briefing, in Abuja. Oladimeji stated that President Tinubu’s plan for job creation, industrialization and power generation are quite commendable.
According to him, judging from the President’s inaugural speech, there is indeed a renewed hope for the country .
He said : “We salute the President on his promise of fair and equitable government, his beautiful plan for omnibus job creation and prosperity bill, his aggressive plan on industrialization, his agenda to take the battle against electricity generation and fight to uproot insecurity and say that indeed that there is hope in the renewed hope agenda
“We therefore call on all Nigerians to please have patience with the President. The energy must be positive and the support sincere. Now we have a government with clear determination and agenda and clear commitment to unity, justice and does not have a plan to witch hunt but move from the present to a flourishing future and prosperity for all.
“We wish him well and pledge the support of the coalition to his administration in order to ensure that he succeeds.”
Furthermore, the CSO dismissed alleged plan to protest against the Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria ( CBN), Godwin Emefiele, saying there was no need for any such protest.
“It is important to state categorically that the Coalition of Civil Society Groups did not plan any protest against the CBN Governor or the CBN because there was no reason to organize such protest.
“However, where any such blackmailing or extortionist plans to protest against the CBN exits, it is hereby called off and members of the public are urged to disregard any such plan for any purported protest.
“It is our desire to update you on the happenings in the Nigerian Civil Society Community aimed at restoring the integrity of the community and ensuring focus in the nation building activities of the community,” it stated.
