Why Asiwaju Bola Tinubu Should Speak Out Now, By Adedayo Osho

In all sense of honesty, every single socio-economic development indicator is unfavourable to our 'average citizens' for the past ten months. Only those who lie for a living would brand this proclaimed 'Change' as currently effective.

Can we hope that with a reduction of about 17 billion naira from 6.077 trillion naira initially tendered, the passage of N6.060tn, being budget for 2016 will improve the lives of Nigerians under the Buhari presidency.

In all sense of honesty, every single socio-economic development indicator is unfavourable to our ‘average citizens’ for the past ten months. Only those who lie for a living would brand this proclaimed ‘Change’ as currently effective.

And although sermons were preached upon APC ascension of how change usually takes time to materialise, especially in fractured societies, the common man cannot continue to wallow in abject poverty while we pretend that all is moving fine.

For instance, it is pathetic seeing a pregnant woman of at least, 6  months, doing vehicle windscreen cleaning job in traffic – predominantly done by young boys in Lagos.

This is where the issue of ballooning wealth gap is most glaring. With a tiny percentage {very few} elites speedily climbing the ladder of abundant prosperity and their counterpart lower citizens finding it difficult to attain middle class.

A flurry of revelations even indicates that the country’s elite is at no time interested in helping promising and intelligent children of the common man.

The big men and women are fully aware that by so doing, their children, majority of them spoiled brats, will face future stiff competition in this brilliant and ambitious folks who possess high degree of civility.

Whatever article, column or open letter, the kind commonly written to President Muhammadu Buhari on state of the nation’s economy and politics should also be addressed to Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

Since the latter is APC’s national leader, with such hierarchical ranking and stature in the party making him the proverbial ‘Power behind the Throne’ in the game of politics. His position on topical national issues carry weight and seem to be in a better position to advise the president, more than any appointed official, however highly placed.

Jagaban should as a matter of urgency remind these selfish politicians that APC is a party which has ‘Left of the Center’ as its ideology. Of course, no single party can be traced to any distinct political ideology in Nigeria, the Broom party has little time within the ambience of grace to prove the promised Change will be delivered to even the most hitherto wretched rural dweller: this in itself is the goal of any party which embraced social welfare, limitless opportunity for individual enhancement and progressive national development as it claimed during campaign.

It is increasingly clear at this moment that Nigerians need an efficient government which can lift millions out of sufferings.
