The Yoruba Tennis Club held a lecture to commemorate its 97th anniversary recently, passing a vote of confidence on President Bola Tinubu’s economic reforms.
The lecture titled: ‘Transforming crisis into opportunity: Charting a new economic course for Nigeria’ had speakers including Dr. Abiodun Akinkunmi, Dr. Muda Yusuf and Dr. Biodun Adedipe.
The club lauded President Tinubu’s administration for tackling economic challenges facing the country, saying after a turbulent night comes a glorious dawn.
But the government should do more for ordinary Nigerians to feel the positive impact of the reforms.
“Government should do more to address extant socio-economy in equity through the expansion of the social security safety net.”
The club said rather than implement wage increase to cushion the effect of petrol subsidy removal on workers, the Federal Government should tackle the stifling inflation through the instrumentality of providing subsidy for sectors such as agriculture, education, health services and aviation, which would impact directly on the people.
Traditional Yoruba music, dance, and cultural performances added vibrancy to the event, reflecting the rich cultural heritage of the Yoruba people.
