Ejes Gist Nigeria reports that the National Leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has proposed a concerted and united response to the various challenges facing Nigeria.
Tinubu spoke at the State House in Abuja Monday night after a closed-door meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari, accompanied by former APC Interim National Chairman, Chief Bisi Akande.
According to the former Lagos Governor, he was at the White House to consult with President Muhammadu Buhari on solutions to the country’s numerous problems, and he urged all Nigerians to back the government.
According to him, the current discontent is not unusual, but he believes that seeking solutions, through discussions and exchanges of views and ideas about how to improve the country’s fortunes, should be a collaborative effort.
“It’s to generally study the perceptions going on outside there and equally reflect on the security around the country more,” Asiwaju Tinubu said when asked why he visited the President and some of the solutions to current crises.
“He may have more knowledge than we do, but we are his on-the-ground ears, and we must share our perspectives so that a better Nigeria can be achieved. That is everything there is to it.
“The best way is what we’re doing now: working together to eliminate banditry, promote unity, and provide a better Nigeria for Nigerians.
“It is critical to our people’s well-being. And, yes, every country will experience these ups and downs. How we explain it to the people, and what areas should be used to make it easier for people to bear, are both suggestions for how to improve the country’s leadership.”
“Cooperation, empathy, and determination,” he said when asked how to solve crises. Efficient knowledge and effective protection. There is no President who wants his country to be in disarray. Have you ever come across one? Please direct one to me. No one wants his citizens to be vulnerable to banditry and danger.
“ “No President or leader wants his country to be torn apart by tribalism, ethnic differences, and so on. It necessitates careful supervision, as well as periodic review and dialogue.”
Tinubu, responding to rumours that his friendship with Buhari had soured, said the two had maintained a cordial relationship.
When asked if he and the President have an unhealthy relationship, Tinubu replied, “Nothing like that, nothing like unhealthy.” Who is our medical professional? Is the relationship being measured by social media?
“I don’t have to bother him in front of the camera, do I?” No, there are a plethora of perspectives on problems. We don’t have anything like that,” she says, describing their friendship as “very close and cordial, frank and honest.”
He said of 2023 and the APC’s chances of re-election, “I don’t want to forecast that one right now, I don’t want to do that topic right now.” As bright as a midnight star, the odds are in your favour. We’ll keep working for a better Nigeria because that’s what you need.
“We can’t bring politics and assumptions into everything; we have a country to create and a baton to move. You can count on Buhari not to spend a single minute past his term limit. He will not do so; instead, he will uphold the Constitution.”
