Don’t Ground Nigeria, Let Tinubu Prove Himself, Oluwo tells NLC
The Oluwo of Iwo land, Oba Abdul-Rosheed Akanbi has urged the NLC to not use the strike action against president Tinubu's government and to allow the president to prove himself
The Oluwo of Iwoland, Oba Abdul-Rosheed Akanbi, has urged the leaders of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) not to use the strike action against the government of President Bola Tinubu.
Oluwo made the remark during the 2023 Festival of God held at his palace, where religious leaders gathered to praise God and pray for the leaders of the country.
He also advised the NLC, headed by Joe Ajaero, and Nigerians to be patient with Tinubu’s government and to allow him to prove himself.

“We know that things are tough and hard for Nigerians, but NLC should know that this present government is not the one that created this hardship and that is why Nigerians need to be patient with the government of President Bola Tinubu, let him prove himself, he has put capable hands in his government.
We have seen him talking about the problems of this country eloquently, this means it is on his heart to resolve them. I trust and I believe that this present government of Bola Tinubu meant well. He has taken the bull by the horns. Many have led the country and lack the boldness to do what he did by removing the fuel subsidy. This is just a temporary hardship, subsidy is not for the poor man. No country in the world subsidizes fuel, what should be subsidised is housing and transportation.
NLC should be patient so that we can have a clear head to take the country forward. We are talking to the president because we are close to our people. If this government does something wrong I will be the first person to criticize the president or any governor, nobody can dethrone me, you can see that I am celebrating God who is who cannot be dethrone.”
He, however, added that the NLC should keep the president on his toes by reminding him of his duties to the people and not ground the country or go on strike.
