President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, in a meeting with Yoruba Leaders of Thought on Friday, pledged his unwavering commitment to meeting the expectations of Nigerians, asserting that the nation's period of "bleeding" has come to an end.

Expressing deep concern over the state of local government administration, President Tinubu emphasized the need for a more efficient system that fosters community development within Nigeria's federal structure. He advocated for enhancing governance and reinforcing leadership across all levels of government and institutions.

Reflecting on the challenges faced during his administration's first year, Tinubu stated, "We took over, and we have stopped the bleeding. I can say categorically now that Nigeria is no longer bleeding. It has been challenging. It has been fulfilling as well. We stopped the bleeding, and I can confidently say that Nigeria will now move towards prosperity. This is the promise I made to you all, and it is also the charge you gave me."

The President underscored his administration's commitment to encouraging fiscal federalism and strengthening the system to ensure inclusion and equity for all Nigerians. He criticized any attempts to centralize local government responsibilities under the federal government, calling it a "criminal" act in a federal system.

"Local government administration is being suffocated. People are seeking opportunities to ensure their survival and become more purposeful through community development programmes. I will not support efforts to make local government a unitary system by handing all core responsibilities to the federal government. We have a federal system with state and federal administrations. States must do whatever is in the best interest of their administration process. There is no one-size-fits-all. We must be consistent with federalism and fiscal federalism. You should expect these things from me, not knee-jerk reactions ahead of elections," Tinubu declared.

He also highlighted the country's progress in stabilizing its economy, stating, "Nigeria is no longer printing paper money and deceiving itself that it has a base for survival. Nigeria went through terrible labor pains, but we have seen the baby coming out alive."

The President's remarks reflect a commitment to sustainable governance and economic stability, aiming to fulfill the promises made to the Nigerian people and ensure a prosperous future for the nation.
