Tinubu pleads for calm over cash crunch, petrol scarcity

The presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu has appealed to Nigerians to remain calm in the face of scarcity.

Tinubu yesterday, requested that Nigerians be patient as the government and relevant agencies continue to find solutions to the fuel and cash crunch.

He lamented the scarcities in a statement by the Director, Media and Publicity of the APC Presidential Campaign Council, Bayo Onanuga.

Tinubu sympathized with the people, especially the downtrodden, who have been bearing the brunt of the new naira policy by the Central Bank and the irregular supply of petrol.

He said: “This is a challenging period in the life of our country when our people are made to stay on the line for hours to get fuel and even get their own money from the banks.

“I empathize with Nigerians across the country, especially the poor masses who have been made to bear the brunt and pains of the CBN Naira policy and fuel scarcity the most.

“While the government continues to work to solve these problems, let’s stay calm, maintain the peace and continue to shun and avoid any act capable of causing civil unrest and disharmony.

“What the opposition and enemies of democracy want is to create a state of national siege and tension that can disrupt the coming general elections and create an atmosphere of strife in our country.

“We must say no to them. We must be resolute and stand firm to protect our democracy by ensuring we hold our elections in a peaceful and orderly manner.”
