The Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Mr Benjamin Kalu has commended President Bola Ahmed Tinubu for walking the talk in his efforts to move Nigeria out of the economic problems.
Addressing a section of Nigerian professionals in Sydney, Australia in the appraisal of first 100 days in office of the current administration and the journey so far, the Deputy Speaker applauded the President on his move to restore diplomatic relationship between the two countries.
According to him, the effects of both the ban and the stoppage of the flight operations while it lasted were greatly felt on the economy.
He also commended the President’s efforts at bringing back old multinational corporations such as the Volkswagen Motors to Nigeria, noting that the administration is committed to fixing the country for the good of all and sundry.
Kalu however said the parliament will be scrutinizing the job of the executive arm of government in line with the constitution to prevent any sabotage of the President’s efforts towards national development.
“The road map is clearly spelt out by Mr President and he is following his action plans diligently. Truly, this is the kind of leadership the nation needs at the moment. He is focused. He is deliberate, proactive, energetic in the pursuit of renewing our hope. Truth be told, there has been fresh air since he emerged.
“The President is getting the job done. He is not just a coach but also a player in the ring to get the job done. We are impressed with what he is doing so far but it will not stop the parliament from scrutinizing the works of the executive to avoid anyone around the MDAs to sabotage his effort for national development. So, over-sighting them is critical and we will do that. Generally he has started well”.
Kalu added that being a private sector groomed President, the importance of industrialization and increased commerce has been placed in the front burner.
