Bear with Buhari, 3 years not enough to fix Nigeria—Tinubu



Bear with Buhari, 3 years not enough to fix Nigeria—Tinubu

Bola Tinubu, former Lagos State governor and national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), says three years are not enough to fix Nigeria, noting that looters ruined Nigeria’s today by destroying its yesterday.

He called on Nigerians to bear with President Muhammadu Buhari as he was trying to gradually fix the broken country.

Tinubu spoke during the Eid-el-Kabir celebration in Lagos on Thursday.

He said: “Nigerians adopted democracy; we are going to live through this democratic government. We need a President Buhari to retool and re-engineer, that is what he is doing in the economy and he is doing it gradually, otherwise we don’t want it to fall apart again.

“We ate the seed of growth for breakfast. Therefore, there is nothing for lunch or dinner. Nothing to harvest that is why we talk about looters. But it will not take a magical touch to bring it to reality. It takes patience and perseverance.

“Three years is not enough time for retouching, redevelopment and re-engineering the country. There is a lot of hope, there is a lot of expectation.

“Economic development and the future of the youth are crucial in the growth of any nation and we are taking care of that. You have to re-grow the economy, re-engineer it from bottom, during that process; it is always very difficult for ordinary people.”

Tinubu added that he was proud of his achievements during his time as governor of Lagos state.

“We were meticulous, dedicated and focused and we lifted the spirits of our people and that is why it is important for Nigerians to be focused now”.
