Former Speaker, Tambuwal tells Tinubu to listen to Nigerians’ cries 


CITIZENS COMPASS —The former Speaker of the House of Representatives and Senator Representing  Sokoto South at the 10th National Assembly, Aminu Waziri Tambuwal, has appealed to President Bola Tinubu to listen to the cries of Nigerians amidst the harsh socio-economic realities citizens are currently grappling with.

Speaking in Abeokuta, the Ogun state capital shortly after visiting Nigeria’s former president, Olusegun Obasanjo on the occasion of his 87th birthday, the former Sokoto state governor urged Nigerians not to get despondent and not lose hope, as things would change for good.

In a statement by Obasanjo’s Special Assistant on Media, Kehinde Akinyemi on Thursday, the National Assembly member also spoke on the former President during the visit.

Tambuwal, who was reacting to the state of the nation situation, said Nigerians must continue to pray and do the right thing; including  those in government and followers.

According to him,  “my clarion call is to Mr. President as the situation is getting bad by the day. Mr. President should listen to the cries of Nigerians, the country is going through hard times, things have never been this bad. 

“But, he sought this job and he got it, so, he needs to rally and make sure that things are put in better shape for the progress of Nigeria,” the Red Chamber member said.

Speaking on his contributions so far on the floor of the National Assembly, particularly,  as it affects his constituency, the Sokoto South Senator, said that he would continue to give robust representation  to his people. 

He said some strategic road projects linking Zamfara and Kebbi states from his constituency have been included in year 2024 budget.

He also said bills that will ensure Nigerians become beneficiaries of affordable housing are in the pipeline.

On his visit to the former President, the former governor said that he has always been part of the family and coming to felicitate with him on his birthday was an annual thing.

“I came all the way to Abeokuta to come as I always do every year on his birthday. I pray with Baba for more good health, many more years of service to Nigeria and to  humanity.

“He has been an enigma, he has been a great leader and a source of inspiration and indeed Baba has been a great leader not only in Nigeria, West Africa and Africa but, globally too. He is an international statesman, and we pray God keeps him in good health.
