As harsh economic conditions continue to bite harder across the country, a member of the House of Representatives, Ayodele Joseph (APC/Apapa Constituency) has appealed to Nigerians to be patient with President Muhammadu Buhari.
The lawmaker said despite the seeming slowness of the APC administration, President Buhari has the ability to bring the desired change to the country’s economy.
Mr. Joseph, who is member of the House Committee on Ports, Harbours and Waterways, spoke during his maiden Town Hall Meeting “Sustaining the change agenda through empowerment” and distribution of empowerment items to his constituents.
According to the lawmaker, “The path to destruction might be swift and devastating, but the process of reconstruction is usually rigorous and tasking, and might seem slow. That is similar to what we are going through as a nation. I, therefore, implore you to keep up the faith and be patient to reap the fruits of this administration. Our determination to pull through together must remain unshaken”.
Joseph lauded leaders, party chieftains and members of the All Progressives Congress, APC, for their support and the opportunity to represent them, promising not to fall short of their trust.
“Today marks the beginning of our march towards sustainable partnership. I ask for your support and cooperation on this journey of making this constituency better and more prosperous.
“And the partnership that evolved today is purposeful, not only for empowering our people, but to share ideas and interact with you with the aim of serving you better. Our hope will not be in vain because this administration will usher good tidings”, he said.
It was learnt that 70 people benefitted from the empowerment items that included block molding machines, hairdryers, power-generating sets, motorcycles, tricycles, sewing machines, among others.
