First Lady, Remi Tinubu has told Nigerians that her husband, President Bola Tinubu is not a magician.
Glamtush reports that the First Lady, Remi Tinubu, says President Bola Tinubu’s government is focused on fixing the country’s problems but admitted that her husband is not a magician.
Speaking in an interdenominational church service to mark Nigeria’s 63rd Independence, Remi Tinubu said her husband’s government inherited a lot of challenges. However, the Tinubu administration is willing to fix the issues affecting Nigeria, she maintained.
“We are not here to put blame on any administration but to fix what has been damaged,” she said at the event held at the National Christian Centre in Abuja on Sunday.
“My husband is not a magician. He is going to work – brick by brick – and I believe and hope that you will have faith in this administration. The best is yet to come for us,” the First Lady added.
Her comment came hours after President Tinubu’s nationwide broadcast as the country marked its 63rd Independence Day.
In the broadcast, Tinubu said the federal minimum wage for lower-grade public employees would increase by 35,000 naira a month for the next six months.
Later Sunday, government officials and labour unions met for negotiations, and the government said the temporary wage increase would now apply to “all treasury-paid federal government workers for six months,” according to a presidency statement.
The temporary wage hike was among other offers, it said.
“NLC and TUC will consider the offers by the Federal Government with a view to suspending the planned strike to allow for further consultations,” the statement said.
“We’re hopeful that (membership) will have a look at them and give us a fresh mandate,” he said.
