The myriad of challenges facing Nigeria as a nation has received the attention of a former Governor of Lagos State, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, who submitted that the nation must remain united for the problems to be tackled.
The National Leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), while canvassing for people’s support for President Muhammadu Buhari as he address the nation’s challenges, also stressed that his personal relationship with the president remains very cordial.
Speaking on Monday night after an hour closed-door meeting with President Buhari, Tinubu, who was in company with the former Interim National Chairman of the APC, Chief Bisi Akande, emphasised that a concerted and united response was what is needed presently to address the various crises facing Nigeria.
According to him, some of the ingredients needed to overcome the crises include “cooperation, understanding and determination, effective security and effective information.

He said: “My visit is to generally review the perceptions going on outside there and equally focus on the security across the country more. The president will have more information than we have, but we are his ears close to the ground and we have to exchange views so that a better Nigeria is grounded. That’s all.
“The best way is what we are doing; coming together to reduce banditry, to move for unity and be able to bring a better Nigeria to the people. The welfare of our people is extremely important. And yes, every nation will go through this curves and difficult times. How we communicate it to the people, what are the areas to help make it easier for people to bear, those are ideas on how to be able to change the leadership of the country.”
Tinubu is saying this because of his personal ambition. How many of his children have the bandits killed? If he has suffered such a loss, he won’t be talking like that. Oluwa lo mejo da sa.
Shall we be united in death? Should we wait until we are all consumed before action is take. It is time for action. Kidnapping in the North, Middle belt, South West, Herdsmen killers in the Middle belt, South South, South East and South West, Boko Haram in the North East and now North Central. unknown gunmen in the South East. And absolutely no reasonable action taken.
Poverty every where, unemployment and under employment, inflation killing and now insecurity, the worst in the history of the nation
