Following the lack of patience on the path of Nigerians for change as promised by President Muhammadu Buhari and the leadership of the All Progressives Congress, the party's national leader Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has said that President Buhari and the party have at least 100 days of honeymoon before embarking on the implementation of “change” programme.
Tinubu said this during a session with State House correspondents shortly after meeting behind closed-door with Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
He reiterated that change doesn't come by magic as the new administration is currently studying the realities on ground before unfolding fully its plans for the country.
The former Lagos State governor said: “Excuse me! Let us calm now here. How long ago? May 29th was when this president was sworn in. It is an international norm all over the world, there is an honeymoon period, at least minimum of 100 days honeymoon.
"And you won’t allow honeymoon at all? You said change is not coming. Change is not by magic. It driven by the people, the spirit and the character and the planning.
“You see, we have had so much problem in this country in the past because we run into policy blind folded without adequate and effective planning you don’t have results unless you plan well.
“The time it takes you to plan, examine, rejig, re-evaluate is more important than the time you just rush into taking action because you are either being sentimental, being emotional and being driven by other forces that are not expected. It is not fair to jump into those conclusions.
“There is a separation between a campaign period, articulating your vision, expressing the promises to Nigerians, there is a time to look holistically at what you inherited, analyse it, distill and then take action.
“Even in a 100 metres race, there is a time to say ‘on your mark, set, ready, go.’
“So, you don’t even want a time to be on your mark, set and go? No, you are not being fair"
Tinubu further urged Nigerians to be patient, as the set plans by the new administration is going through appropriate stages before they can be fully unveiled and implemented for the betterment of the people.
