Ben Murray-Bruce, former senator representing Bayelsa East, says President Bola Tinubu is making “the right calls”.
“President Bola Tinubu is making the right calls. He turned Lagos into the 6th largest economy in Africa, and now he is in charge of the largest economy in Africa. Watch out,” Murray-Bruce tweeted.
Bruce’s comment comes in the wake of the suspension of Godwin Emefiele as the governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).
Following his victory at the polls, Tinubu reiterated his commitment to making Nigeria better.
In his inaugural speech, the president declared the petrol subsidy regime over, adding that his administration would unify the foreign exchange markets.
The petrol subsidy removal led to a hike in the pump price of the product across the country.
As a result, organised labour asked workers to embark on strike but the planned industrial action was suspended after meetings with the federal government delegation.
The Joint Health Sector Union (JOHESU) also suspended its proposed strike following the intervention of Tinubu.
The president also intervened in the tussle between the Department of State Services (DSS) and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
TheCable had reported how DSS operatives prevented EFCC officials from accessing their Ikoyi office in Lagos state.
Tinubu had asked the DSS to vacate the EFCC office immediately, saying the agencies would resolve the issues between them amicably.
On Thursday, Tinubu signed the bill on uniform retirement age for judicial officers.
The law extends the retirement age of high court judges — and others — from 65 to 70 years.
The president also signed the electricity bill into law, thereby empowering states, companies and individuals to generate, transmit and distribute electricity.
Tinubu said the devolution of power in the power sector is his administration’s “contribution to developmental projects”.
