Economy:Pray for Tinubu, other leaders to take right decisions lawmaker tells Nigerians

Sen. Saliu Mustapha has appealed to Nigerians to pray for President Bola Tinubu and the country’s other leaders to make the right decisions that will be in the interest of all.
Mustapha who represents Kwara Central Senatorial District in the National Assembly, made the appeal in Abuja while playing host to a socio-political group, Agbarere Development Association on Sunday.
The All Progressives Congress (APC) lawmaker specifically charged Nigerians to refrain from destructive criticism of Tinubu and the country’s other leaders over its current economy challenges.
He said criticising the country’s leaders over its current economy challenges would not in any way address the situation, but would rather exacerbates it because there is power in spoken words.
“I will like to appeal to Nigerians from all walks of life, irrespective of their faith or ethnic backgrounds, to cease from cursing President Tinubu and other leaders at various levels of governance.
“Irrespective of the times, we should refrain from cursing our leaders, because the power of words can either harm or heal.
“Therefore, the situation of the country will only get worse if the curses come to pass on them,” Mustapha said.
While acknowledging the current economy situation in the country, the lawmaker assured that President Tinubu and other leaders were working round the clock to address the challenges.
“I acknowledge that the country is facing unprecedented socio economic and security challenges, but it is not enough for some people to cash in on that to be raining abuses and curses on our leaders.
“While our leaders are making efforts to fix the country’s challenges, our responsibility as citizens is to pray for them and support them with ideas that can uplift the country,” he said.
Mustapha, who is also the Chairman of the Senate Committee on Agriculture, described leadership as a collaborative efforts.
He emphasised the importance of constructive engagements by way of sharing innovative solutions to the myriad of problems facing the country.
He noted that in every democratic system, the positions of political leaders were tenured.
“Until their tenure elapses, they remain in charge, and their decisions for better or worse, have profound impacts on the entire nation.
“Whether we like it or not, the leaders are in a tenured positions and as long as the tenure doesn’t elapse, they remain on the seat.
“And while they are there, any decision taken, good or bad, impacts on us all,” he said.
He urged the populace to therefore, adopt a more constructive approach by praying for their leaders to make the right decisions and succeed in their endeavours.(
