Ambode Stresses: Hardship Isn’t Exclusive to Tinubu’s Era



Former Lagos State governor, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode, emphasized that the ongoing hardship in Nigeria has deep historical roots and did not commence with the administration led by President Bola Tinubu.


Speaking at the Akinjide Adeosun Foundation’s 2024 Leadership Colloquium and Award, Ambode called for a proactive approach to address the country’s challenges and commended President Tinubu’s determination to tackle them.


Ambode stated, “It (challenges) has nothing to do with the singular person called Mr. President, but if we don’t understand the fundamentals, we will start playing the blame games. We need to face our problems frontally. The major issue is that we are even tired of not fixing our issues. Now, we have found somebody that has decided in person of President Tinubu.”


Encouraging unity and support for President Tinubu, Ambode emphasized the need for a collective effort to address Nigeria’s challenges. He urged Nigerians to refrain from blaming the country and advocated for a positive mindset, stating, “We must think out of the box. We have to feed ourselves. When we start to think by ourselves and today we will resolve the issues concerning Nigeria, we will smile.”
