Tinubu not a magician – Oshiomhole 

FORMER Governor of Edo state, Adams Oshiomhole, has defended President Bola Tinubu, saying those who voted him as president are aware he is not a magician.

Oshiomhole noted that there was no time Tinubu pledged to fix the country’s numerous problems in 24 hours during his presidential campaign.

The former president of Nigeria Labour Congress stated this when he was featured on Channels Television’s ‘Politics Today’ on Sunday night.

He said, “They know they were not electing a magician. And nobody promised a magical solution. Don’t bother giving me an example. I know what we (APC) promised more than you. Whatever is reported, we are the source. We did not promise anyone a 24-hour solution and we did not promise an overnight solution. Can you show me any document where we said in 24 hours, this will be done?

“I think you are the ones who have the illusion that once a promise is made, automatically once he (Tinubu) gets into office, either spiritually or by miracles, solutions will emerge. What Nigerians need is what the president has demonstrated – the courage to take the decision, humility to admit some of the unintended consequences of those decisions, and, of course, the will to deal with those consequences.

Continuing, Oshiomhole stated that resolving the fuel hike, unemployment and other challenges is not something that can happen in a day.

According to him, the president deserves commendation for the manner he has hit the ground running since assuming office.
