Like I have stated before now that Nigeria has not been governed for a while now. Nigeria has been on autopilot with powerful political forces and actors influencing the better part of the presidential decisions.

However, in the past six months, Nigeria has witnessed maximum governance with decisive futuristic approaches towards making Nigeria an economically viable and self-reliant nation.

Meanwhile, the resuscitation of Port Harcourt Refinery is another testament of purposeful leadership and selfless governance. This transgenerational feat holds a lot in stock for Nigeria.

Henceforth, the prices of fuel will no longer be determined by how much naira exchanges with dollar at the forex market nor by the international price of crude oil in dollars.

Henceforth, we can now be proud to call ourselves an oil producing nation with the potentials to meeting our energy needs.

However, while I commend you, sir, I have some humble pleas to make. Firstly, I urge you to keep soldiering on to complete the resuscitation of the Warri, Eleme and Kaduna refineries. That way, we can buy our locally refined petroleum products at an average price of #350 per litre without our economy stolen dry in the name of fuel subsidy. Again more, formal and informal jobs will be created and sustained for our energetic young men and women.

Morever, the foreign exchange will receive a boost from the exportation of our local crude without using the proceeds to pay for subsidy thereby stabilising our currency as well as our economy.

Secondly, Mr President, it is my special request that we implement the Naira and Chinese Yuan exchange policy. Once we are able to do this, I can bet anybody that our economy will be the fastest growing economy in Africa.

Thank you, Mr President.

Thank you, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu for renewing our hope.

Indeed, you are a beacon of hope.
