A party chieftain of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), Mr. Olufemi Ajadi Oguntoyinbo, has said that the first 100 days of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s administration is not worth celebrating.
Olufemi condemned the first 100 days of President Tinubu’s administration over failure to kickstart their campaign promises on a good note.
Recall that on May 29, 2023, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu was officially inaugurated into office.
He expressed regret that Workers around the country are still made to endure the meagre amount of N30,000 Naira minimum wage despite the increment in household items and the removal of fuel subsidy.
He noted that the hope of many Nigerians who voted for good governance had been dashed.
Olufemi further lamented that the palliatives being rolled out by the government is not reaching its intended target/people.
Speaking further, the chieftain advised that the money generated from the removal of fuel subsidy be channeled into infrastructural developments which would benefit every Nigerian irrespective of thier societal class.
“Your 100 days in office are not worth celebrating because they lack impact on our citizens. The workers are still collecting thirty thousand naira (N30,000) minimum wage despite the increment on all household items caused by the subsidy removal.
“The palliatives are not getting to the downtrodden; instead of using NIN, BVN attached to bank accounts to detect the poorer of the poor, they are just giving them out to politicians using wards and local government.
“Instead of giving palliatives to states by the federal government, the money realised from subsidy removal should have been channelling into infrastructural development, which will be beneficial to every Nigerian irrespective of financial status.
“But given palliatives either in terms of cash or materials, it can never gets to the target audience but a kind of another scam. it became a race against time as they endeavoured to turn election promises into tangible actions,” he said.
