According to Tony Elumelu, Chairman of Transcorp Power Limited, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s reforms have inspired the private sector.
Following their meeting with the President on Tuesday, the founder of the Tony Elumelu Foundation praised Tinubu for his recent policy initiatives in a conversation with State House reporters.
The chairman of United Bank for Africa (UBA) further expressed optimism that Nigerians will soon profit from the reforms.
In his own words: “President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s bold decisions are encouraging the private sector, and we expect that in due course, Nigerians would benefit from them since it is all about the Nigerian people.
“Youths are the main focus. Making sure that women are engaged and empowered is key.
“I think Mr. President has this in the back of his mind, and I believe, as a person in the private sector, that the actions and the decisions the president is taking now will help our people in the long run,” the speaker said. “It is all about making sure our youth get jobs.”
Elumelu pleaded for Nigerians to have more tolerance for the President and the current course of action.
“A little bit of patience, you know Rome was not built in a day,” he remarked.
Elumelu advocated for investments in Nigeria’s power industry, calling it “ironic” that the country has a wealth of gas resources but is unable to run its power plants to their full potential. NAijaloaded had earlier reported this.
