Osifo said Tinubu is doing everything possible to fix the economic challenges confronting the country.

Speaking with News Agency of Nigeria, NAN, on Monday, the former presidential aspirant said: “Every Nigerian has one thing or the other to talk about now on the hardship.

“This good thing is that even the President has acknowledged the problems and he understands what Nigerians are going through now.

“He acknowledged the problem during his last meeting with governors. He has given assurances that with time, things will stabilise.

“Nigerians should not panic because what we are going through right now is a phase, and I believe this phase will pass soon.”

He noted that things had not been easy for Nigerians as a result of the economic situation, stressing that the President was not sleeping on all matters.

He added: “The President is trying his best to stabilise the economy and has made some pronouncements and interventions on how to give succour to the people.

“I strongly believe that the President is aware of what is going on right now and he is doing everything possible to see how the issues will be addressed.

“Also, let the President, the governors and council chairmen prioritise issues facing ordinary Nigerians.

“They must get things addressed and make sure that Nigerians don’t cry again.

“It should be clear to all in the corridor of power that Nigerians are suffering, hence the need to stop wasteful spending.”
