What Oluwo says about Tinubu government

Oluwo, speaking with reporters, said:

“We know that things are tricky for Nigerians, but NLC should know that this present government is not the one that created this hardship, and that is why Nigerians need to be patient with the government of President Bola Tinubu. Let him prove himself; he has put capable hands in his government.
“We have seen him talking about the problems of this country eloquently; this means it is on his heart to resolve them. I trust and believe that this present government of Bola Tinubu meant well. He has taken the bull by the horns. Many have led the country and lack the boldness to do what he did by removing the fuel subsidy. This is a temporary hardship; support is not for the poor man. No country subsidises fuel; housing and transportation should be funded.
