Give Pres. Tinubu time. It’s too early to expect absolute results — Gowon tells Nigerians

Former Head of State, General Yakubu Gowon, has urged Nigerians to be patient with President Bola Tinubu and give him time to resolve the various issues bedeviling the nation.

The elder statesman said this while speaking with newsmen on Wednesday, February 21, after meeting with the President at the State House, Abuja.

He advised the President not to be bothered by people’s critique of his government saying he was similarly criticised over his pursuance of the Nigerian Civil war when he was Head of State in the late 1960s and early 1970s.

“Well, I was telling the President that no Nigerian leader that can get there and will not have all the report of what is being said about him. But certainly, there’s no doubt from what one hears and what one sees on the various media etc, I think the government is trying their best to deal with the various problems of the country but with Nigerians? Don’t worry you will get criticised but people who get there know better than you know.

I think all what one can say is that Nigerians, we’ve got to give the president time to get things really done. And it is too early to sort of say absolute result, perfect result will be achieved now. That is my opinion.

I know and if I can remember, when I was fi¥hting the w@r I was told I was too slow and that probably Nigeria cannot make it and that we should now seek for discussion. Well, did we do it or not? They probably do not know the problem underground so that is where we are,” he said.
