Hardship: Endure, have faith in my father— Seyi Tinubu

Seyi, son of President Bola Tinubu, has urged Nigerians to endure the current hardship in the country, adding that the decisions taken by the president should have been made years ago


He also expressed optimism that, while the difficulties exist presently, the country’s future is bright.


Tinubu made this known in a post on Instagram on Monday.


He wrote, “There is no joy in seeing the people of this nation shoulder burdens that should have been shed years ago.


“I wish today’s difficulties did not exist. But we must endure if we are to reach the good side of our future.”


In the same spirit, comedian, Oluwaseyitan Aletile, professionally known as Seyi Law, on the need for Nigerians to be optimistic while stressing that he would still vote for President Bola Tinubu if a fresh election comes up tomorrow.


He likened the current economic hardship in Nigeria to the biblical wilderness experience of the Israelites, saying he would rather stay with “a Moses through the wilderness to Canaan than eat meat and drink wine in slavery in Egypt at the expense of my children’s future”.


In a lengthy post shared via his X handle, recently, Seyilaw said “While a lot of Nigerians kill the optimism of others with hate and urge for immediate gratification, it is sad that our government agencies are not communicating government agendas, efforts, and actions effectively”.


Recall President Tinubu on 29 May, during his inauguration, announced the removal of subsidy on petrol, a development that has caused hardship for many Nigerians because of the attendant increase in the prices of goods and services.


Apart from the removal of subsidy, the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) also announced the unification of all segments of the forex exchange (FX) market as part of efforts to engender transparency in the markets and boost investors’ confidence. Although the policy has been widely applauded as well-intentioned and necessary, it has put additional pressure on the local currency and manufacturers, with ripple effects on prices.


Both policies are being put in place at a time Nigerians are just recovering from the shocks of a controversial naira redesign policy that crippled businesses and made life difficult for many Nigerians who could not access their funds for several months.


Although the federal government has announced a series of palliatives to mitigate the impact of petroleum subsidy removal and similar shocks on the people, many Nigerians are still reeling from the devastating impact as prices of petrol, foodstuff and other essential commodities continue to rise.

  1. Tell your father the truth. He made a mistake by announcing the removal of subsidy knowing fully well that removal of subsidy must come with hardship especially when he did not plan it. There is, there was and there shall not be a measure to ameliorate the sufferings of Nigerians by your father. Tell him, he is not doing well yet.

  2. You father is fake. Fake promises.
