Finally Ministerial Lis is Out! Bola Tinubu Speaks About Ministerial List After Meeting With Buhari

Finally Ministerial List is Out! Say Bola Tinubu.

Few minutes after the closed door meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari the national leader of the ruling party Bola Tinubu addressed journalists.

The ex-governor of Lagos state was answering to a question on the reported struggles by him and Atiku Abubakar, former vice president, to become APC BoT chairman.

Tinubu said that no such competition have place in the party and that the party is focussed on supporting President Buhari in accomplishing his goal of changing Nigeria.

He said: “Don’t listen to rumors, there is no struggle. Our party is not even looking at the direction of power struggle or anything of such.

“The support structure is to encourage and support the president as you have heard from Chief Bisi Akande, to help him institutionalize his goal, principle and vision for a new Nigeria.”

On those complaining about postponement in the formation of Buhari’s cabinet, Tinubu added: “There is pitfall in rushing, quick fix, depending upon the depth of the rot. And that rush can cascade into mistakes of unimaginable magnitude. There is equally glory and recovery in slowness, when you have a slow fix of a bad foundation.

“So to me, I would rather take the one that will last the country and endure for a longer period of time than the rush hour shopping.”
APC chairman also disagreed with the opposition party that claim that Nigerian leader was dictatorial.

“I disagree with that. He was elected on a platform of democracy, he has adhered to rule of law so far. What is dictatorship about what he has done? He has helped to stimulate the economy in the various states and that is where the people are. So what is dictatorship?” Tinubu asked.

“And the institutional paralysis had occurred in the country. It is very important for a steady man like the President to really help the nation recover from the paralysis and that is what he is doing. So I don’t see what is dictatorial about that.”

“If they don’t have anything to say, they rather be quiet. They created what is wrong here today and we can’t sweep that under the carpet. There must be rule of law,” ex-governor added.

Bola Tinubu has recently denied allegations that he has been making demands of President Buhari on whom the latter should appoint to his administration.
