Grant Tinubu one more year to perform, Bode George urges Nigerians

In a surprising turn of events, Bode George, a prominent figure within the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has called on Nigerians to extend a grace period of one more year to President Bola Tinubu, allowing him to address the nation’s pressing challenges and fulfill his promises.

Speaking in an interview on Arise Television, George emphasized the need to recognize Tinubu’s status as a first-time president and the adjustment period required to implement his policies effectively.

He stated, “To be fair to my conscience, he has had that one-year holiday of trying to study the failures of the past administration. I have given him that one year of grace because now he has seen it and lived there.”

Acknowledging that Tinubu may have benefited from studying the failures of past administrations during his first year in office, George urged Nigerians to afford him additional time to address areas of concern and make tangible progress.

He noted, “I expect his ministers to have come back in one year with those areas of lapses.”

Drawing parallels with former President Olusegun Obasanjo’s initial tenure, George highlighted the significant difference between being a party member and assuming the role of the nation’s leader.

He remarked, “Even when Baba (Olusegun Obasanjo) became president in 1999, he was still trying to figure out what happened there or vice-versa in his first year. Let’s give him more time.”

George’s unexpected call for patience and understanding towards Tinubu’s administration reflects a nuanced perspective within the political landscape, signaling a willingness to prioritize national progress over partisan divides.

As Nigerians await further developments, the discourse surrounding Tinubu’s leadership trajectory continues to evolve, with George’s remarks adding a new dimension to the ongoing dialogue.
