The All Progressives Congress (APC), Gambia Chapter, says President Bola Tinubu has started rewriting Nigeria’s story in his 100 days in office.
Chief Toye Rasaq, Chairman of the Chapter, made this remark in a statement on Wednesday in Lagos to mark Tinubu’s 100 days in office.
Tinubu, who was inaugurated as President on May 29, marked his 100th day in office on Tuesday.
Rasaq, a member of the APC Committee of Diaspora Chairmen (CDC), congratulated him and prayed to God to grant him more wisdom, strength, and good health for more historic successes in the days, months, and years ahead.
He said, “You have started rewriting the Nigeria Project.
“Within the last 100 days, you have clearly demonstrated that leadership in you is not about talk without work but about experience encapsulated in strategically defined vision, well-directed proactiveness, and inclusivity.
“What could not be achieved for over five decades as for the Subsidy Scheme in our country was meticulously put to rest within the 100 days as President Commander In Chief of the Armed Forces Federal Republic of Nigeria.
“Your leadership gift is further reflected in your tireless devotion to duty, in your pragmatic management of issues, and in your amazing deployment of intelligence to solve every problem.”
Assessing Tinubu’s notable accomplishments over the past 100 days, Rasaq expressed admiration for the President’s significant efforts in reshaping the country’s security infrastructure.
He noted that the President had not only formed his cabinet but had also convened meetings with Service Chiefs, traditional leaders, and key stakeholders to address the persistent security challenges facing the nation.
Rasaq further highlighted that during this timeframe, the President engaged in dialogues with governors from all 36 states to deliberate on matters concerning the economy, security, and public governance.
Additionally, Rasaq emphasised that the President’s administration had distributed relief measures to alleviate the impact of the fuel subsidy removal, a noteworthy achievement.
In praising the President for fostering collaboration with labour unions to ensure industrial harmony, the diaspora APC leader also mentioned Tinubu’s endorsement of several pivotal bills, including the 2023 Electricity Bill and legislation pertaining to a new retirement age for judicial officers, among others.
Rasaq concluded by acknowledging that the President had implemented crucial reforms in the financial sector and the broader economy.
