"I wish today’s difficulties did not exist. But we must endure if we are to reach the good side of our future."
In a broadcast to mark Nigeria’s 63rd Independence Anniversary, Mr Tinubu said the hardship is an aftermath of the essential removal of subsidy on petrol.

“I am attuned to the hardships that have come. I have a heart that feels and eyes that see. I wish to explain to you why we must endure this trying moment,” he said.

He added: “Reform may be painful, but it is what greatness and the future require.

“I wish today’s difficulties did not exist. But we must endure if we are to reach the good side of our future.”

Mr Tinubu announced the removal of subsidy on petrol in his speech at his inauguration on 29 May.
