Former presidential aide Reno Omokri has said that it is too early to call President Bola Tinubu’s administration a failure.
Omokri opined that he does not understand why supporters of the Labour Party (LP) flag bearer, Peter Obi, popularly known as Obidients, would label Tinubu a failure after spending only 82 days in office.
He made reference to the governor of Abia State, Alex Otti, who is a Labour Party member and asked if he has successfully turned his state around after spending the same 82 days in office.
The political analyst claimed that Obi, while he was the governor of Anambra State, did not build a single school.
He went on to say that progress does not come overnight, adding that Tinubu is not a magician.
He wrote, “In my opinion, Waziri Atiku would have done much better than President Tinubu. You only have to look at his plan. However, I don’t understand how Obidients can say Tinubu has failed. He has been President for just 82 days and to them, he is already a failure?
“Alex Otti is the Labour Party Governor of Abia state. He has also been in office for 82 days. Has he turned small Abia around? Is Abia now cleaner? Is the state’s internally generated revenue now higher? Has he built or improved the state road network? So, if Alex Otti has not achieved much in tiny Abia and is even making schoolboyish missteps, like buying Toyota cars rather than locally manufactured Innoson Vehicles, why would you judge Tinubu so harshly?
“Peter Obi governed Anambra for eight years and did not build a single school. If you doubt me, name one school Mr Obi initiated, started, completed, and commissioned.
“Progress comes over time, not overnight. In as much as I prefer the PDP Presidential candidate, I still admit that Tinubu is not a magician, and in 82 days, he has certainly not done as well as Atiku would have done, but he has done much better than fake statistics would have!
