‘Everything shows Tinubu wasn’t prepared for governance’ – US Professor

Nimi Wariboko, a professor of Social Ethics at Boston University, has said that President Bola Tinubu has not produced results to show that he was prepared for leadership.

In an interview with ChannelsTV, the US-based university don lamented that Tinubu, who won the February 2023 presidential election on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) had no laid-down plan to cushion the economic effects of the petrol subsidy removal and other policies.

“Eight months into a government system is too long not to have a plan,” Wariboko said.

He described the current government’s policies as “knee-jerk reactions”, saying that the government of the day lacks vision.

“There’s no point complaining about (ex-President Muhammadu) Buhari. There’s no point complaining about the goodness or the expectation of Buhari. Now, the ball is in his (Tinubu’s) court and he has to do it because he said it was his turn.

“People keep saying he was prepared; he’s been a politician but the test of everything is the result we are seeing and I don’t think
we have seen any results so far that would justify that accolade being heaped upon him.

“The Bible says: If your strength fails you on the day of adversity. it is small. I always tell people that: If your strength fails you on the day of adversity, it was not there. It’s a simple case; we are not seeing the result, we are not even seeing a clear vision of where the country is going.”

Nigeria is battling rising inflation, food inflation, forex crisis, economic hardship and high cost of living occasioned by the removal of petrol subsidy, attracting protests in parts of the country.

  3. It’s only in Nigeria I’ve seen where an aspirant insist on political leadership because it’s one’s turn. We observed several misgivings in the February 2023 election results but Nigeria like you no has a resilient spirit to endure until natural justice takes it turn. As we watch on we pray for divine help to see us through as we await God’s verdict.
