The senator representing Edo North senatorial district, Adams Oshiomhole, clarified that the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) did not make promises of miracles or overnight solutions to Nigerians. He made this statement during an interview on Channels TV’s Sunday Politics.
Oshiomhole pointed out that the APC did not present any documents promising specific timelines for solving the country’s challenges. He emphasized that the party did not claim to have miraculous solutions that would deliver immediate results once in power.
Regarding President Bola Tinubu, Oshiomhole stressed that he is not a “magician” who can instantly solve all of Nigeria’s problems. He emphasized that Nigerians knew they were not electing a leader with magical powers but someone who had the courage to make decisions and the humility to address any unintended consequences of those decisions.
The removal of subsidy on petrol was cited as an example, and Oshiomhole commended President Tinubu for taking measures to address the impacts of that decision.
Furthermore, the senator criticized the current minimum wage of N30,000 in the country, describing it as a “criminal wage.” He highlighted the significant decrease in the value of the minimum wage over the years due to inflation and exchange rate fluctuations. Oshiomhole argued that the current minimum wage does not adequately reflect the actual cost of living and should be reevaluated.
In summary, Oshiomhole asserted that the APC did not promise miraculous solutions during their campaign, and Nigerians should not expect a magical fix to the country’s challenges. He praised President Tinubu’s courage in decision-making and willingness to address unintended consequences, while also expressing concerns about the current minimum wage being inadequate.
