Critics of Tinubu’s Developmental Policies Out To Score Cheap Political Points -Wole Arisekola

Mogaji Wole Arisekola, the National Chairman of the Association of Online Media Practitioners in Nigeria (AMPCON) and the Publisher of StreetJournal Newspaper, has criticized some unpatriotic Nigerians who seem to be unhappy with the progress made by the administration of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu. According to him, some people are always hoping for the government to fail, so they can score cheap political points.

Speaking to newsmen on February 16 at the Transcorp Hilton Hotel in Abuja, the Ibadan High Chief revealed that some people are always happy to amplify bad news about Nigeria, but when there is something good to celebrate, like a milestone achievement from the government, they are the first to ignore it because it does not suit their agenda.

Arisekola called out Nigerians who post negative comments when the government makes positive progress in getting the country out of its current economic woes. According to him, these people are evil and unpatriotic. If they really love Nigeria and believe that they have no other country, then when the government achieves a positive result, they should acknowledge it and amplify it. Arisekola also noted that he can’t understand how some people can be happy that the country is not making progress.

Arisekola gave an example of when Dr Doris Nkiruka Uzoka-Anite announced that the Ministry of Industry, Trade and Investment, under her leadership, had attracted a cumulative investment worth over $30B into Nigeria. Instead of some Nigerians being excited that the investment would create more direct and indirect jobs and also attract Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) into Nigeria, some bitter people went on social media to call the working minister all sorts of names.

Arisekola also disclosed that the youth demography is the one claiming that the news is untrue, and they should do better by applauding the government’s effort in creating jobs for them. He noted that they should not wish for the country to collapse under the present administration just because they have preferences for a certain candidate during the election. They should be partners in progress and also work hand in hand to ensure the projection of Nigeria in a positive light so other people can believe and invest in the country.

Arisekola also urged Nigerians to be patient with the current administration as it means well for everyone. Nigeria is a blessed country, and this is the first time they are taking their challenges and proffering a lasting solution. He concluded by saying that Nigeria is currently in its trying phase, but there is light for Nigeria, and they should have faith and believe that Nigeria will be greater.
