Seyi, the son of President Bola Tinubu, provoked a chorus of condemnation on Monday after he urged Nigerians to be patient with the current administration. 


In an Instagram post, Seyi pleaded with Nigerians to endure the current economic hardship.

Seyi, while quoting his dad in the post, said Nigerians need to endure the trying times for “a better future”.

“There is no joy in seeing the people of this nation shoulder burdens that should have been shed years ago. I wish today’s difficulties did not exist. But we must endure if we are to reach the good side of our future,” – President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria Bola A Tinubu,” he wrote.


Seyi’s post, however, did not go down well with a plethora of Nigerians on X (formerly Twitter).

While some users tackled him over his “opulence lifestyle”, others wondered if “patience” in Tinubu’s government would pay their bills or feed them.

“Seyi Tinubu should leave Instagram & walk on the streets of Lagos without escort. To gauge the feeling of Lagosians. As a sure boy he is, Wasiu & MC Uluomo will protect him,” a user wrote.


“Seyi Tinubu wear Richard Mille for hand dey tell me make I endure hardship wey him papa cause,” another user asked.

Here is what some Nigerians had to say:


Seyi’s remark comes at about the same time when many Nigerians staged protests against the economic hardship in the country.

Residents in Ibadan, the Oyo state capital, took to the streets on Monday to decry the state of the country.

Several protests were also staged in Kano, Ogun, Niger and Sokoto states.

The labour union also announced a nationwide protest on February 27 and 28 over the rising cost of living.

Food prices have been on the rise since Tinubu pronounced an end to the petrol subsidy regime on May 29, 2023.

There have also been reports about an imminent increase in the cost of fuel from N585.

Last year, Seyi assured that his father would not fail Nigeria.
