Tinubu to Obasanjo, IBB: Stop writing ‘bad belle letters’

Obasanjo

Bola Tinubu, national leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, on Tuesday said President Muhammadu Buhari was on a journey of redirecting Nigeria to the path of greatness.
The former Governor of Lagos State made the disclosure during the colloquium in commemoration of his 66th birthday.
He said though the APC met several challenges on assumption of power, the Buhari-led government was on the voyage of “retooling Nigeria, re-inventing Nigeria and re-directing Nigeria.”

He, however, noted that “It’s not an easy course to embark upon.”

The full text of Tinubu’s speech below:
Your Excellency, President Muhammadu Buhari, the Vice President and my co-conspirator, Yemi Osinbajo and his wife, Dolapo; our dear governor of Lagos State, Governor Akinwunmi Ambode. I have personally witnessed your good work in the last three years that has brought tremendous progress and development to the state.
Your Excellencies, the various governors, all of the governors from across the country. All the deputy governors, particularly Idiat Onabule (Lagos Deputy Governor) for her friendship and collaboration with our governor. I thank you my dear wife, Oluremi Tinubu. Thank you for tolerating me, as if you have a choice; the Speaker Lagos State House of Assembly. I can see some of my very faithful friends and compatriots over the years like Governor Rochas Okorocha, my friend Aliko Dangote, Jim Ovia and Oba Otudeko. I’m just lost for words.

We have to put our heads together, believing in ourselves that we are going to do it. We can give our people the best through the competent hands that we have.
I have a prepared speech, but I am not going to dwell on that. Life is not without challenges. Our logo is broom, we come together, you have a Nigeria focusing against terrorism, against corruption and to promote economic revival of the country.
We have faced challenges in the last three years. We came in with a lot of hope and enthusiasm as APC leaders. We gave our people hope; we believed in Nigeria and in ourselves, thinking we can change Nigeria for good and we are still going to do it. Life is nothing without challenges. Our logo is broom bound together. This symbolizes a united Nigeria against terrorism, corruption and revival of the economy.
I can see what the government is doing with the little resources at its disposal. This has been demonstrated in practical terms.
What’s the lesson to all Nigerians: forget those parties; they won’t come back. We did not envisage that there would be so much challenges. So, we would report back to Nigerians about what we found on ground. We did not say that there would be no challenges, because even America is facing challenges. They have wasted our resources.
Thank you Nigerians for being patient with us! But there is a clear understanding here; that the difference between us and them is like day and night. My grandmother used to ask me to write letters to her. Somebody is writing letters now, letter of politics these days. As if they have not been there before. Bad belle letters!
