In his chat with journalists, Elumelu acknowledged that the president had made good decisions in the interest of the country, saying the private sector had been encouraged by the steps taken so far.
According to him, all the policies made by Tinubu so far had been in the interest of all Nigerians, especially women and the youth, saying that in the long run, Nigeria will benefit from it all, imploring citizens to be patient with the President.
He said: “The private sector is encouraged by the bold decisions President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has taken and we hope that in the fullness of time, Nigerians will benefit from it because it’s all about the Nigerian people, it’s all about our youths, it’s all about making sure our women are involved and empowered.
