Former Lagos State governor, Bola Ahmed TInubu, said on Friday that he was properly invited to the National Democratic Convention, in Charlotte North Carolina, United States.
Tinubu, arrived in Lagos early Friday morning from the United Kingdom aboard a private jet. He said the ruling party does not have the moral right to query whether he was properly invited to the convention, which he said is enough excuse for the party’s failure to address issues bordering on poor governance, failed privatisation of the power holding company of Nigeria and inability to put food on the table of Nigerians.
Here is an excerpt from his remarks in his words
“It is unfortunate that we have not been able to distinguish between public contact and a proper democratic convention. There is a great exhibition of Nigerian ignorance and those scavenging power in its corridors.
“They do not even appreciate that fact that we fought for democracy. During the struggle for this democracy, there was a lot of precedence and people outside this country are still watching us. I was at the convention, I was invited properly.
“Is it about the high rate of unemployment in this country, is it about the inability of the ruling party to provide food on the table for hungry Nigerians, is it about the state of electricity in the country that they cannot privatise properly, without blackmailing the former minister of power, who the government forced to resign?
“The ruling party should busy itself about the infrastructure that is lacking in this country, there is need for our leaders to share knowledge with others to know what we need and how to move the nation forward.”
