IBB, Obasanjo Should Allow Nigeria Move Forward By Joining Retirees’ Club – Tinubu


Bola Tinubu

National leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has urged former Nigerian leaders, Olusegun Obasanjo and Ibrahim Babangida to keep off politics and instead enrol in the retirees club.

In a reaction to the open commentaries on President Muhammadu Buhari’s leadership, Tinubu advised the former presidents to enjoy their pensions by joining the retirees’ club.

“I don’t address those shadows. We should let our former presidents join retirees’ club and take pensions but they can participate in our politics if they are interested.

“It is a free world but this freedom is not served a la-carte but they should allow us to move our country forward. It is a challenge to every Nigerian.’’

Tinubu spoke to media men in Abuja after he and Chief Bisi Akande met Buhari to express their condolences on the president’s loss of two relations.

Tinubu said the APC is determined to prosecute 2019 general elections in a most transparent and democratic manner.

He also expressed his commitment towards ensuring electoral victory for all APC candidates in the election.

He commended Buhari for appointing him to lead the consultation, reconciliation and confidence building efforts toward improving cohesion within the APC.

“I belong to this party. My commitment is to this party. We have a better chance and we are strongly determined to prosecute election in a most transparent and democratic manner and we will win.

“Well, l feel greatly honoured with the mutual confidence that the president has reposed in me which is a very strong political challenge.

“We have started in earnest. He has given me free hand to put cohesion, confidence and trust in the party.

“Democracy is about conflict resolution process. You can’t do it without resolving conflicts. We can’t build it without understanding the conflicts and sources where we are coming from.

“But we want to leave the country with a legacy. It’s not about Mr. President. That is what he’s telling the country,’’ he said.

  1. Thank you Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu for taking up the gauntlet.
    There is nowhere in the world where people gather either as political, religious or social associations that they won’t experience conflict because people are different, and we see things from different perspectives.
    I wish you well in this laudable assignment and I pray you will continue to shine brighter and brighter as you grow older and older.
    Even a thousand Obasanjo and Babangida cannot pull you or Buhari down with their selfish and self-centered activities. We know where they are coming from and we know that Babangida and Obasanjo don’t wish Nigeria and Nigerian masses well. They only care about themselves and their children.
    Keep up the the good works.
    God help you.
