I’m taking baby steps, don't be in a hurry - Tinubu tells Nigerians

By Our Correspondent

President Bola Tinubu has urged Nigerians not be in a hurry in seeking solutions to the challenges facing the nation, saying he is taking baby steps as the president.

Tinubu said this at the palace of the Alake and Paramount Ruler of Egbaland, Oba Adedotun Aremu Gbadebo, during a visit to traditional rulers in the State.

In his words, the President asked Nigerians to go with him through what he called the baby steps of faith.

“Let's go through this baby steps of faith. I am taking baby steps as the president. Let's not be in a hurry. Be ready for this. Maintain an open-door policy. Let the freedom flow. Let the confidence return. This country is the only country we have. I've been a refugee and I know what it means to be a refugee,” he said.

Tinubu assured Nigerians that he is determined to deliver on all campaign promises, calling for prayers after achieving his ‘Emilokan’ prayer point.

He stated, “Having achieved the prayer point of 'Emilokan', what I ask for is prayer for this country. I am determined to help this our country, to steer the ship of the nation and to deliver on all promises that were made.

“I am here still making that pledge of the campaign promises. There's no difference between us and any other member of the Nigerian public. I said it in France, that we are children of the same parents, living in the same house, but we are only sleeping in different bedrooms. Just recognize that.

“Let's be united, no distractions. We will arrive at a positive destination in the country. It's all in our hands to make history and I will do that. By the grace of God, we shall reap the fruits of our labour. Nigeria will see positive changes.”

Speaking on his visit to Ogun State, Tinubu said he only wanted to sneak in s sneak out, stating that now he knows what it means to be the President.

He maintained that the hope for a better Nigeria has been recharged and it will not fail.

“I was determined to be here to say thank you to a great leader, Oba Gbadebo and to all of us here present.

“Aremo ( Olusegun Osoba) well done; Dimeji Bankole, well done, (Ibikunle) Amosun, well done. Chairman of our party, I'm grateful, at least, we delivered despite the hardship of no money, no fuel; I credit you. 

“This visit, I didn't know that it will be like this. I only wanted to sneak in and sneak out; now I know exactly what it is to be a president. It is awesome.

“The hope is recharged right here. That hope will never fail. That hope will recharge your light...

“Please, we need your prayers, we need your supports, we need your interventions so that the economic prosperity of this nation being opened up will affect everyone of you positively,” the President submitted.
