Bola Tinubu, on Saturday assured Nigerians that the change agenda of President Muhammadu Buhari is still on course. According to the APC chieftain, the change process requires time especially coming after “ the conscience of our nation has been under attack for many years.
“We were handed a way of governance in which anything goes and too much went – as if gone with the wind. Our present was squandered and future mortgaged”.
Tinubu while pleading for support and patience with the APC administration said “Nigeria has the greatest opportunity to get it right with a leader like Mr. Muhammad Buhari.”
“There is much to fix. President Buhari is committed to fixing them. But he needs your support and patience. He cannot do it all alone. We must stand beside him or else.we may be knocked down and not stand at all.
“Thus, let us be resolved to see reform and change that will make Nigeria rise as the nation it should be” Tinubu said while speaking at the Usmanu Danfodiyo University convocation in Sokoto on Saturday.
The former Lagos State governor also took on the those he described as “nay Sayers and negative spinners” who argue that no change was taking place.
“It’s easy for those who are greedy to think that change is easy. Change is not about comfort of today, but the success of tomorrow. Nigeria was in the rollercoaster of losing hope. Then our party brought cure. Don’t let anyone deceive you, the cure is here”.
Mr. Tinubu was honoured with the Honorary Doctor of Business Administration at the 40th Convocation ceremony of the Usmanu Dan Fodiyo University.
