The Nigeria Labour Congress has tasked President Bola Tinubu to ensure the speedy execution of all his policies for the betterment of the country.
The Ondo State Chairman of NLC, Mr Oladele Amoko, gave the charge in an interview on Tuesday in Akure.
Amoko, who congratulated Tinubu, the 16th president of Nigeria, also advised him to ensure that the removed fuel subsidy funds do not end up in the wrong hands “as people are expecting much from the new government.”
The State Chairman stated that Nigerians are hopeful because Tinubu made a lot of promises both in his inaugural speech on Monday and during his electioneering campaigns.
“If he can afford to and stand by his promises, then we will have a new Nigeria.
“But concerning the petroleum subsidy, there is a need for him to have a stakeholders’ meeting so that all hands will be on deck,” he said.
Amoko asked, “Because if we remove the subsidy, who are the people to manage the money the government is removing so that it won’t end up in other wrong hands as at used to be?”
He further said that if Tinubu can do all this, then Nigerians should be expecting to have a better outing ahead because the promises won’t be just lip service.
“Nigerians are tired of grammar, adjectives and policies without action. We want the government to put all the policies into action.
“Nigerians are looking forward to what Tinubu is going to do about the promises he made,” the NLC chairman said.
