Seyi, the son of President Bola Tinubu, has begged Nigerians to put up with the current hardships in the nation, stating that the President’s decisions ought to have been made years ago.

Expressing optimism for the future, Seyi Tinubu stated that although challenges persist, the nation’s outlook is promising.

He conveyed this message in a post he shared on his Instagram handle on Monday.

Using the hashtag #OurGenerationWillYieldTheFruitsOfThisHardship, Seyi Tinubu quoted his father, Bola Tinubu, saying, “There is no joy in seeing the people of this nation shoulder burdens that should have been shed years ago.

“I wish today’s difficulties did not exist. But we must endure if we are to reach the good side of our future.”

But his entreaties failed to appeal to some of his followers on Instagram, who asked if faith in Mr Tinubu’s government would pay their bills or feed them.

“Na faith we go use buy foodstuffs and pay bills?” said @ololade.

Another follower, @empresstok, said, “How far are u enduring? You can say that to the masses cos you are not in their shoes.”

Meanwhile, former presidential aspirant and legal practitioner Chief Reuben Famuyibo has issued a stern warning to northern leaders, cautioning them against adopting a “born-to-rule mentality” and making inflammatory statements criticizing the administration of President Bola Tinubu.

Famuyibo expressed concerns that such utterances could incite unrest and create chaos in Nigeria.

In a conversation with The Nation on Monday, Famuyibo criticized what he perceived as an onslaught on the Tinubu administration, highlighting the need for leaders to avoid identity politics and divisive rhetoric.

He noted the sudden emergence of voices that remained quiet during the previous administration, raising questions about their motives.

Famuyibo revealed consultations with Yoruba leaders within and outside the country, indicating growing discomfort with threats, criticisms, and innuendoes directed at Tinubu.

While acknowledging that criticism over policy reforms is acceptable, he condemned politically charged and ethnically sensitive statements from some leaders in the North, warning that such remarks could incite civil strife.

Calling for a denouncement of provocative utterances, Famuyibo urged Nigerians to reject divisive tactics and emphasized that Nigeria belongs to all citizens.

He stressed the importance of unity for the nation’s collective well-being.

“We want to remind those threatening fire and brimstone against President Tinubu over the problems created by the Muhammadu Buhari administration, which ran the economy aground and made Nigeria the poverty capital of the world, that neither Nigeria nor Abuja is the exclusive preserve of anyone but all Nigerians.

“They must stop the politics of provocation and incitement influenced by a born-to-rule mentality and years of patient endurance by other sections of the country.

“The self-serving, perfidious, insidious, provocative and inciting utterances must be denounced by all right-thinking Nigerians,” he said.
