President Tinubu’s sons included in official FG delegation for state visit to Qatar

As President Bola Tinubu prepares for a state visit to Doha, Qatar, scheduled for March 2 to 3, 2024, controversy has arisen over the inclusion of his sons, Seyi and Yinka Tinubu, in the official delegation.

The delegation, consisting of 38 individuals, is divided into two batches, and the participation of the President’s family members has ignited criticism and raised questions about transparency and governance principles.

The first batch, arriving on February 28, comprises notable figures like Borno State Governor Prof. Babagana Zulum, Kaduna State Governor Uba Sani, Minister of Foreign Affairs Ambassador Yusuf Maitama Tuggar, Minister of Finance Wale Edun, and others.

The second batch, set to arrive on February 29, includes Seyi Tinubu, Yinka Tinubu, and several officials such as Hakeem Muti-Okunola, Ambassador Victor Adekunle Adeleke, and Dr. Ade Tinubu.

The inclusion of President Tinubu’s sons in official trips has sparked accusations of nepotism and favouritism.

Critics argue that such appointments may not align with principles of fairness and impartiality.

Despite President Tinubu’s pledges to reduce the cost of governance, the decision to include family members in official trips raises doubts about the commitment to these promises.
