PRESIDENT TINUBU ASSURES SOUTH-SOUTH TRADITIONAL RULERS OF HIS COMMITMENT TO THEIR CONCERNS                                                        23-01-24

By  Sadiq Aminu                                                     President Bola Tinubu has assured traditional rulers in the South-South geopolitical zone that his administration is committed to addressing their concerns over development and environmental degradation.

The President gave the assurance in Abuja during a meeting with the South-South Monarchs Forum, led by Chairman of the Delta State Council of Traditional Rulers, retired Major-General Felix Mujakperuo.

President Tinubu told the Royal Fathers that his administration was diligently working, both domestically and internationally, to strengthen Nigeria’s durability and approach to climate change, environmental restoration, infrastructure development, while ensuring security and stability in the region.

Commending the monarchs for their understanding approach to his administration’s ongoing economic reforms, particularly the removal of the fuel subsidy, President Tinubu promised that Nigerians would soon enjoy the benefits of the tough, yet necessary decisions.

”We are working to revive the economy from the damage of several years. We seek your support, prayers, and understanding, and I am glad that the Vice-Chairman of the Forum served in an organization where we need intelligence to operate.

”You (the traditional institution) will be the source of the intelligence we need for the holistic development of our country, and anytime you need to tell us something, do not hesitate to reach out to this office. I will take on all of your concerns, and I will address each of them one by one.

”We cannot underestimate your contributions to the peace and stability of this country. Continue to uphold us in your prayers and in talking to our youths to keep faith with the country because light is already visible at the end of the tunnel,” the President said.

The leader of the forum, retired Major-General Mujakperuo appealed to President Tinubu to follow up on all developmental efforts in the region to be sure that progress was tangible to the people.

“Mr. President, you know the problems of our region as an expert with experience in the energy industry. We see you working hard to solve our problems, and we are comforted that you have pledged to take on our concerns and bring a final solution to them,” the South-South Monarchs Forum Vice-Chairman said.
