We Have No More Excuses, We Have Failed In The Promises Of The Past – Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu

The National Leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress Party (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu has shown his dissatisfaction with the turn of events regarding the party’s past election promises to the Nigerian youths in 2015 till date.

Chief Bola Tinubu in his address to the youths that gathered at Onikan Stadium, Lagos Island to rally support for his 2023 presidential candidacy said “I disagree with the excuses that we can not help it.”

In his dissatisfaction with how things are going in the country, Asiwajus said: “The promises of the past have failed to realise that you build the future from the onset, from the kindergarten to high school, to university. All of that needs serious reform. I disagree with the excuses that we can not help it. We can help it if and I say if today the Twitter, the Facebook alone represent 3.5 billion people. How did they do it that we can not? All you need is courage and determination, perseverance. If the Youtube alone has 2.9 billion people following it, Nigeria can excel and can do it.“

He said that there is no more need to keep giving the country excuses why we can not make progress saying that the youths are not lazy but were deprived of the resources that can enhance their productivity and prosperity of the majority of the citizenry.

Chief Bola Tinubu said: “Enough of excuses! Enough of bitterness! Enough of disunity! All we have to do is to be a United Nigeria of Africa. Hunger has no tribal mark, poverty has no tribal mark. Money in the bank, no tribal mark. All we take is bold, endeavour, vigorous, determination, confidence, can-do attitude. We can do it. We can not continue with excuses for NEPA failure. No, no nation can make development, rapid development without electricity. Give us that and if we can not be successful, yes you can abuse us. But you can not give us erratic electricity and then blame us again that we are lazy, No.”

“Nigeria, Nigeria, it’s about time. We have enough gas to fire up our electricity. We can supply the rest of Europe with gas and we can make money, money a long time from it.”

“We can definitely feed ourselves, by being creative, visionary and committed. Do you know how many of you tweeting and WhatsApp right now? The world will host a database of 1.6 billion on WhatsApp alone.“

It is worthy to note that there has been a simmering fallout between the APC national leader, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and the party leadership at the helm of the Nigerian governance which was aggravated after Tinubu’s political son, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo was ostensibly favourited as a presidential candidate.

VP Osinbajo thereafter officially declared his presidential interest irrespective of the fact that it may jeopardize his mentor’s political ambition; a move that Tinubu saw as betrayal and disloyalty.
