Alhaji Faruk Malami, APC Chieftain in Sokoto State and a former Commissioner for Finance, on Saturday appealed to Nigerians to be patient with the President Muhammadu Buhari led administration.
Malami told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Sokoto that patience, support and tolerance were required from Nigerians for the Federal Government to achieve its people’s oriented policies and programmes.
He expressed optimism that Nigeria under Buhari will witness tremendous development in all sectors by boosting the nation’s socio-economic growth.
He urged all Nigerians irrespective of tribe, religious and political affiliations to assist the President with fervent prayers for God’s intervention in the nation’s affairs.
Malami said that it was only by so doing that laudable policies and programmes of the Federal Government could achieve optimal success.
He explained that the governed must team up with the government at all levels to promote peaceful coexistence to achieve the set objectives.
He also advised the Federal Government to accord priority attention to the power sector in order to attract foreign investors.
According to him, effective power supply will encourage foreign investors to come and invest in the country.
He said that steady power supply would go a long way to encourage establishment of small scale industries thereby creating job opportunities for unemployed youth in the country. (NAN)
