Buhari does things in spartan way: Tinubu

Social sharing

By Ismaila Chafe

Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, the National leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) used the opportunity of the launch of a book on President Muhammadu Buhari to call for the reintroduction of History in school curriculum.

The APC leader  was one of the four reviewers of the book, titled;  “Muhammadu Buhari – The challenges of leadership in Nigeria.’

The book in three parts and 24 chapters was  written by Prof. John Paden, who had also written a remarkable book on Sir Ahmadu Bello, first premier of Northern Nigeria.

The former governor of Lagos State, described Paden’s latest book as “educative and informative reading and timely narrative.’’

He described President Buhari “as a true democrat, a disciplined and focused person right from his youthful days till his present position.’’

Tinubu said that Buhari was in haste to bring changes as a young leader, while “Buhari as an older leader is now slow and steady.’’


Tinubu said that Buhari was in haste to bring changes as a young leader, while “Buhari as an older leader is now slow and steady.’’

He said: “this authorised biography of Nigeria’s leader, President Muhammadu Buhari, attempts a broad characterization of the different stages of his life and professional career.

“Essentially, the book explores how his professional career, his personal life and prior experiences in government shaped and prepared him for the momentous assignment he now has.

“From the pages of the book, we see a man who has lived his life on assignments that always intersected with vital moments in the nation’s history.’’

The APC leader said that Buhari was a man on assignment when he served bravely in the military in a civil war to keep Nigeria united.

He added that the Nigerian leader was also on national assignment when he became military head of state in a well-intentioned effort to straighten things out and set Nigeria on a better path.

“When he (Buhari) ventured into politics and competed for the Presidency, culminating in his 2015 election victory, he was still on assignment, showing that there was no other way for this nation to go but the way of democracy, no matter how difficult the path may be.

“Now, as sitting President, he is on assignment, against time, to undo the wrongs of nearly two decades of bad governance.

“Such is the life of this man. Always in the public eye doing things in his different, disciplined and Spartan way.

“From this compelling narrative, neatly demarcated into three parts and 24 chapters, the reader is able to glean the quintessential Buhari,’’ he said.

Tinubu used the opportunity of the book launch to call for the immediate re-introduction of history in the nation’s tertiary institutions.

He said the call had become imperative in order to expose students to the biographies of great leaders within and outside the country.

  1. Baba Tinubu, we hail! But, this one na washing of the highest order! Even you don’t believe this President any more! We know that he’s always on an assignment, with no results. By the way, nobody speaks of the Spartan nowadays, except in folklore or tales by moonlight. And on scary nights when granny tries to put us to sleep! You and your cronies are historic… Kindly do give us the youths a chance to make Nigeria better. Then, we’ll sing of you guys in our histories. Meanwhile, stop fooling us! This talk and that crappy book launch is nothing, but SCAM!
