End Nigerians Suffering Now – 36 State Speakers Tell Tinubu by treesun: 9:03am On May 17
Conference of Speakers from 36 State Houses of Assembly has called on President Bola Tinubu to enact sustainable policies that will end suffering of Nigerians.

This is also as they have admitted that the economic challenges faced are due to the removal of petroleum product subsidy by the federal government and the floating of the exchange rate, which has led to harsh consequences for the populace.

The conference, chaired by the Speaker, Hon. Adebo Ogundoyin, also urged the Federal Government and State Governments to initiate sustainable policies with equal measure of courage to ameliorate the sufferings of the people.

The conference also strongly advocated for state policing, stating that it would check the negative trend of insecurity in our country.

The conference further appealed to relevant political leaders in Rivers State to explore peaceful means to resolve the near impasse between the legislative and executive arms of the state government.

The resolutions were contained in a communiqué signed by the chairman at the end of a meeting attended by twenty-nine speakers in Abuja.

The meeting had deliberations on a wide range of issues concerning good governance in the country.

According to the communiqué, “While the Conference acknowledges the courage of Mr President in his economic policies taken so far, such as the removal of petroleum product subsidy and the floating of the exchange rate, the unintended consequences of these policies are too harsh on the populace.

Speaking at the conference, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon. Tajudeen Abbas, who was represented by the Chairman, House Committee on Inter-Parliamentary Relations, Hon Mark Esset, stated that the issue of state legislative autonomy will be prioritized in the ongoing constitutional review, adding that it will part of the key issues that will be on the front burners.

Speaking on the merits of the forum, Esset explained that the forum symbolizes a vital convergence of minds dedicated to advancing democratic processes and promoting good governance.

“In this critical time that the 10th National Assembly is undertaking the review of the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and knowing the important role the State Houses of Assembly plays, one of the key issues that is on the front burners of the constitutional review is the enactment of the state Houses autonomy, which is the key issue or key point the Houses of Assembly seek to achieve.

“The National Assembly has done it before; unfortunately, it was lost, but I assure you that the National Assembly under the leadership of Tajudeen Abbas, the state parliament autonomy will be a reality.

“In today’s interconnected world, the importance of inter-parliamentary cooperation cannot be overstated. Through collaborative efforts, shared experiences, and mutual support, we can address common challenges and work towards sustainable development and prosperity for our people.

“For too long, the national and state legislatures have operated somewhat in isolation; fostering constructive engagement is critical.

“The 10th House of Representatives is particularly keen on strengthening this relationship, especially as we embark on the review of Nigeria’s Constitution. Your support and active participation will be crucial to the success of this monumental task. Additionally, it is essential that we all stay current with our subscriptions to the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association (CPA).

“Membership in the CPA offers numerous benefits, including access to a global network of parliamentarians, opportunities for professional development, and platforms for sharing best practices in legislative processes.

“By maintaining our subscriptions, we ensure that we continue to benefit from these valuable resources and remain engaged in the global parliamentary community. Furthermore, your active participation in the CPA allows us to contribute to the ongoing efforts to transform the association from a charity organization based in the UK into a fully-fledged international organization. This transformation will enhance the CPA’s ability to support its members more effectively and ensure that its governance structures reflect the diverse perspectives of its global membership.

“As someone who once served in a state legislature, I am acutely aware of the unique challenges you face as state legislative leaders, especially within the context of state politics.

“However, by working together, we can develop more robust and responsive legislative branches across the country. I commend you for your unwavering commitment to fostering legislative excellence and for your tireless efforts in representing the voices of your constituents. Your dedication is fundamental to the strength and vibrancy of our democracy.

After exhaustive deliberations, the conference issued the following resolutions at the end of the meeting:

“The Conference observed that in spite of the constitutional provisions that grant Financial Autonomy to the State Legislature, the implementation has been observed in breach. We, therefore, call on all the relevant stakeholders to comply with all the provisions in the Constitution and not breach them.

“To achieve this, the Conference appeals to the National Assembly, Presidency, and other relevant stakeholders to leverage the ongoing constitution review exercises.

grin grin grin grin When dollar increases to new high level, food prices will go further up and the gbedu go enter body well well.

I pity those still paying tithe from their meager money. Christians should boycott tithe payments in protest to their daft leaders who keep manipulating them and backing the government.

Sebi Adeboye has been brainwashing Nigerians that naira will improve. That things will be sweet soon. Mbaka, Kukah etc.

Muslims should also ignore their Imams who sold fake Bala blu to them on Muslim Muslim ticket.

As though tilibu doesn't know that Nigerians are suffering. He already said it before that there is nothing he can do about it

In 2026, when the elections starts heating up, after eating a few cups of rice and oil shared by these politicians, the masses that they wesponized poverty against would still campaign and vote for him

We are indeed our problem

Who are they deceiving? if you do not know by that now that the phrase "democracy is the government of the people by the people for the people" is scam, you deserve whatever is happening to you.

Government is an illusion, it does not exist, what you have got is a group of corrupt occultic individuals parading themselves as leaders.

How can he end it?

Someone who believes that the best way to develop is to tax the poor more, make the rich richer, feed the poor crumbs in the name of palliatives and ask the poor to bear with him.

With serious hunger and misery in the land, BAT chose to build a coastal highway, rather than get agriculture and security complete sorted out first. While that pill was forced down the throat of citizens, he decided to use pension funds for infrastructure building. With no control over exchange rates, inflation gets worse everyday, the man does not seem to have a solution.

For the first time, Nigerians are truly “under pressure”.

This must still get worse for the masses before it gets better.

Deregulating the price of both petrol and electricity are a must.

The removal of subsidy will free 8.5 trillion. Half of that belongs to the states. That about 350bn monthly for the states. That's an average of 11bn per state each month.

This is my thirty something years in Lagos. I was here when they came and left. If also you were here, you'll know what am talking about. Pomposity, ruggedity, agbero style, non challant attitude, my boys eat o, forget about them kind of life. Just like when older people warned us about buhari first government as a millitary man, we wouldn't listen until we felt it ourselves. Baba T is a Lagos guy, you can't change him. All he want is to complete Abraham Maslow's hierarchy of needs theory. Phisiological needs
Social needs
Security needs
Esteem needs and
Self actualization needs.
He's not after about you surviving or not, he's not after about getting more money as well. He's only after about dinning and winning with world leaders and writing his name as a president of this great country.
Well, Tinubu, God knows, Nigeria did not wrong you in anyway. And those who are supposed to talk are silent, those also who love you and would have spoken to you are angry with you. The happy ones you see around you are really your enemies. They are just looking for your pocket to lick so that they can pick without letting you know angry
