Femi Fani-Kayode, a former minister of aviation, has praised President Bola Tinubu for his quick success as Nigeria’s president in just three weeks.
Fani-praise Kayode’s follows yesterday’s actions by President Tinubu, who dismissed the Service Chiefs and dissolved the boards of several FG-owned corporations, parastatals, and other organisations.
Tinubu had authorised the appointment of Nuhu Ribadu, a former chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, as national security adviser through a statement from the office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, SGF. Tinubu had also ordered the immediate retirement of all Service Chiefs, including the police IG and customs CG.
Fani-Kayode told Vanguard in a statement titled ALL IN THREE WEEKS that Tinubu’s exceptional achievement in just three weeks as president has vindicated those who supported him during the campaign.
The APC Chieftain asserts that Tinubu is being praised by his detractors for implementing as many reforms and making such significant improvements in just three weeks as any other president in Nigerian history.
In just THREE weeks after taking office, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu (@officialABAT) said, “No leader or President in the history of our country has effected so many good changes and reforms and appointed so many credible, decisive, courageous and effective people into key positions in his administration.
Even his fiercest detractors today, as well as those who worked tirelessly to derail, discredit, disparage, humiliate, and destroy him throughout the presidential campaign, are praising him.
The former minister thinks that the president’s performance, which has so far given Nigerians a new lease on life, has vindicated those who put their trust in him and risked all.
“Those of us who believed in Tinubu, saw and valued his value and promise, sacrificed everything, stuck by him and fought for him may be proud of him, and most importantly, we have been vindicated.
“Thanks to BAT Nigeria now has a new lease on life and the light of God has begun to dispel the thick darkness and tangible cloud of stagnation, retrograde and retrogressive policies, monumental corruption, vicious persecution, selective application of justice, abuse of power, incomprehensible incompetence, and wholesale and malicious impunity,” he said.
Fani-Kayode chastises cynics, accusing them of driving the nation into poverty in order to prevent Tinubu from becoming president.
Where are those who, in the guise of printing fresh notes to prevent Tinubu from becoming president, robbed the Nigerian people of all their money and left them in poverty today?
“Where are those who continuously portrayed him to the Nigerian people and the international community as being shallow, superficial, dangerous, inept, unreliable, and evil on television, in the press, on social media, and in international forums?
Where are those who claimed he was too old to serve as President, that he uses heavy drugs, and that he is a mafia don, drug lord, thief, and international felon?
Where are those who claimed he cannot form complete sentences, that he speaks incoherently, and that swearing him in would be the same as urging the military to seize control and spark a coup?
Where are those who claimed he was incurably and fatally ill and that his illness, senility, and age had rendered him so shattered, bewildered, confused, handicapped, and debilitated that he was incapable of carrying out his duties as Commander in Chief or making the best decisions? He noted.
The President, Bola Tinubu, left Nigeria earlier today to attend the World Financial Conference taking place in Paris, France. On Saturday, April 24, 2023, the president is anticipated to return to the nation.
