Don’t pity me, I have no excuse not to perform: Tinubu
President-elect Bola Tinubu says he is aware that Nigeria is confronted with myriads of challenges including poverty and policy inconsistencies but he is up to the task and should not be pitied confronting such problems.
“Corruption, poverty, inconsistencies in policy and many other problems confronting us. But don’t pity me,” the incoming president told a gathering at the presidential inauguration dinner/gala night at the State House Abuja on Sunday night.
“I asked for the job. I campaigned for it. No excuses. I will live up to the bill. I promise,” Mr Tinubu retorted confidently.
Mr Tinubu, 71, will succeed President Muhammadu Buhari for a tenure of four years after taking oath of office on May 29. Concerned have mounted about his mental and physical fitness following his frail appearance and incessant medical travels recently.
With inflation at all time high record of 22 per cent and unemployment estimated to be around 33.3 per cent, Mr Buhari will bequeath a debt profile of over N46 trillion, according to Debt Management Office, to the incoming administration of Mr Tinubu on May 29.
