Ondo Youth Rep, Yemie Fash writes tough letter to Tinubu over economic hardship

Addressing Economic Hardship and Urgent Reforms: An Open Letter to President Bola Ahmed Tinubu

Dear President Bola Ahmed Tinubu,

I hope this letter finds you in good health and high spirits. I am writing to draw your attention to the deepening economic hardship being experienced by Nigerians across the nation. The significantly high cost of living has made the lives of ordinary Nigerians unbearable, and urgent action is needed to remedy the situation.

One of the pressing concerns is the deteriorating exchange rate, with the Nigerian Naira struggling against the US dollar. This disparity has led to increased inflation, making it extremely difficult for the common Nigerian to afford basic necessities. Living a decent life has become a luxury amidst an already high unemployment rate.

Furthermore, the ill-conceived recently introduced certificate verification process by NMCN poses significant challenges for medical practitioners, especially nurses, who are seeking to relocate and work abroad.

This hindrance restricts their professional growth and denies them opportunities for better livelihoods. It is essential that such policies be reviewed and adapted to support professionals without impeding their advancement or limiting their freedom to seek opportunities elsewhere.

In addition to the economic hardships, Nigeria is also facing immense insecurity challenges that are affecting the lives and well-being of its citizens. It is crucial that the government takes immediate action to address this issue. One way to tackle insecurity is by empowering our security operatives with modern technology and equipping them adequately.

This will enhance their capabilities and enable them to respond effectively to emerging threats. Embracing advanced security measures will undoubtedly contribute to restoring peace and stability in our nation.

Moreover, I would like to emphasize the urgent need for the government to prioritize addressing the electricity problem and ensuring stable power supply in Nigeria. A considerable portion of our country’s economic challenges would be alleviated if this issue is properly tackled. Stable electricity would stimulate industries, create employment opportunities, and attract foreign investments. It is a crucial step towards economic recovery.

Furthermore, revitalizing and optimizing all the crude oil refineries in Nigeria would significantly contribute to solving our economic troubles. By reducing our dependence on imported petroleum products, we can save valuable foreign exchange and strengthen the domestic economy. It is a matter of importance that we make effective use of our available resources to empower our nation.

In order to gain public trust, it is imperative for the government, including leaders like yourself, to listen to the concerns of the youth and address them effectively. Engaging with the younger generation, who form a significant portion of our population, will forge a path towards a more prosperous and inclusive Nigeria.

Moreover, it is the responsibility of the government to lead by example and promote the usage and patronage of locally-made products. Encouraging and supporting domestic industries will boost employment, stimulate economic growth, and reduce our reliance on imported goods.

I implore you, as a respected leader, to use your influence and voice to advocate for these necessary changes. We cannot ignore the plight of the Nigerian people who are burdened by the overwhelming economic challenges and the prevailing security threats. It is imperative that we work together to find practical and sustainable solutions to alleviate their suffering.

Let us join hands to create an environment that fosters economic growth, job creation, improved security, and improved living conditions for all Nigerians. By doing so, we can build the future our citizens deserve – a future of prosperity, opportunity, dignity, and peace.

Thank you for your attention to these critical matters. I have faith that with concerted efforts, we can pave the way for a brighter and more prosperous Nigeria.

Yours sincerely,

Oluyemi Fasipe (@YemieFash)
