From Esther Akaa, Lafia
A prominent politician in Nasarawa State and chieftain of the ruling All Progressives Congress, (APC), Mohammed Agwai Mohammed, (Shettima Keffi), has urged critics of the Tinubu administration to give the government more time to ascertain the impact of his governance.
He was optimistic that President Tinubu will positively transform the country.
Mohammed, who is a former member of the Governing Board of the Raw Materials Research and Development Council, RMRDC gave the advice on Friday in his reaction to what he termed as “the pull-him-down syndrome” exhibited by some Nigerians.
According to him, the President has a huge task ahead of him that demands assistance of dedicated and exceptionally gifted Nigerians like the President’s Chief Of Staff, Femi Gbajabiamila, to help turn the country around for the benefit of all.
The former Board Member noted that Gbajabiamila who is currently serving as the Chief of Staff can hardly perform optimally with the wave of regular attacks and criticisms, which, he said are spurious and unproven allegations circulated in sections of the media circle.
Mohammed, “In less than six months of the Tinubu administration, the nation is already witnessing changes as a result of friendly and well-conceived policy thrust.
“Those who never meant well for President Tinubu and his cabinet should have a rethink and allow peace to reign. We need the likes of Gbajabiamila, who have good intentions, to contribute positively to change the narrative and provide for Nigerians who have long been subjected to suffering, poverty and hunger over the years, to benefit from the Tinubu administration.
“President Tinubu is in a hurry to do things differently. So, the support of everybody is required to achieve the set goals of his administration.
“We are in the era where the President will always want things done rightly. So, it behoves on all of us irrespective of religion, ethnic and political inclinations to key into the leadership direction by ensuring that we jointly support the administration in all ways possible.
“I challenged Gbajabiamila’s critic to desist from making unproven allegations.”
He expressed optimism that better days will come for Nigeria under President Tinubu’s leadership and urged those spreading untruths about the chief of staff to, “rise against destructive criticism and forge a common front for good governance in our dear country.”
