APC stalwart, Musiliu Obanikoro, has stated that the current economic revival of the economy by President Bola Tinubu will in a few months make the country a strong player in the committee of nations.
Musiliu Obanikoro stated this in an interview after a visit to Tinubu on Saturday in Lagos.
He said that a nation receives the respect and recognition it deserved at the international community only through its internal policies and programmes.
The statesman, however, called on Nigerians not to expect a quick fix to the various challenges and trials due to the current efforts at reviving the country, saying good things do not come easy.
“When President Tinubu came in as governor in Lagos in 1999 and embarked on reforming the state’s economy, a lot of people were sceptical. About after six months after the whole of Lagos was with us. The same scenario will play out soon in the country.
Your strength overseas is actually derived from home. The stronger you are at home the better you are outside. Nobody will respect you if you are not strong at home.
“Some of the decisions Asiwaju has taken in the last one month has shown that he is ready to play with the international community and this has earned a good review from major players.”
