Nigerians didn’t elect Tinubu as magician – Oshiomhole


A former president of Nigeria Labour Congress, Adams Oshiomhole has urged Nigerians not to expect President Bola Tinubu to change the country in a jiffy as the electorates did not vote for a magician.


The former Edo State governor urged Nigerians to remain patient with President Tinubu, adding that “What Nigeria needs is what President Tinubu has demonstrated.”


He aired his view while being featured as a guest on Channels Television’s Sunday Politics.


He claimed that the president did not promise a magical solution to issues of the country neither did he give any timeline, adding that Nigerians are away that they did not elect a magician.


In his words, “They know they were not electing a magician. And nobody promised a magical solution.


“You don’t need to give me an example. I know what we (APC) promised more than you who were reporting it. Whatever you reported, we were the source. We did not promise a 24-hour solution. We did not promise miracles. We did not promise an overnight solution.


“You show me any document that says in 48 hours, this will be done. In 14 days, this should be done. In 21 days, this should be done,” the Senator representing Edo North argued.


“I think you are the one who has the illusion that once a promise is made, automatically once you get into office, either spiritually or by miracles, solutions will emerge.


“What Nigeria needs is what President Tinubu has demonstrated – the courage to make decisions and to be humble to admit some of the unintended consequences of those decisions, and, the will to deal with those consequences,” he said. “And he has put in place instruments to deal with them.”
