My confidence in Nigerians makes me take tough decisions – Tinubu

President Bola Tinubu has said the confidence he has in Nigerians gave him the courage to make tough decisions on their behalf.

Tinubu stated this during a meeting with Prime Minister Mark Rutte of the Netherlands on Thursday at The Hague.

DAILY POST recalls that since his assumption into office in 2023, Tinubu’s administration has introduced new policies ranging from the removal of the petrol subsidy to the floating of the naira and the increase of electricity tariff.

Tinubu said he would continue to make difficult decisions on behalf of Nigerians, adding that he is fully aware of the “need to give them the long-term tools they need to succeed”.

Describing himself as a determined leader of the people, the president vowed to continue to make difficult decisions that will benefit the people even if there is short-term pain.

“We have gone through the worst of the storms. I am unafraid of the consequences once I know that my actions are in the best long-term interests of all Nigerians.

“The Nigerian Naira is one of the world’s best-performing currencies today. We took the necessary risk, and all resilient Nigerians kept faith with us.

“They will be rewarded, and the reward will only be greater as we partner effectively with you on new opportunities for development.

“As leaders, we must make decisions for the benefit of our nations, and we cannot shy away from that,” he said.
