New Year: APC, Buhari offer Nigeria best path to greatness — Tinubu

Bola Tinubu

A national leader of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, has said that his party and the Muhammadu Buhari-led government present Nigeria its biggest chance to attain greatness.

In his New Year message to Nigerians, Thursday, Mr. Tinubu said it’s time to place the country on the right path.

“This path will not be easy as we must press to surmount obstacles that should have been laid behind us long ago,” said Mr. Tinubu, a former governor of Lagos State.

“There are no short cuts to take to greatness, but there also is no reason that we cannot attain that greatness. Our new government offers the country its best chance.”

“Thus, we must dedicate ourselves to creating a more perfect nation, one built on justice, peace, unity and prosperity.”

Mr. Tinubu urged Nigerians to join hands in a common purpose to defeat insecurity, poverty and corruption and bring back prosperity.

“Let us pledge never again to fall victim to these scourges. Let us pledge this year to walk together in strong unity,” he said.

“May 2016 go down in history as the year Nigeria reached a higher plain by conquering those things that for so long had set us back.

“May this nation rise and become the standard for Africa and the black race that God intends it to be.”

  • Omooba Adekunle Orafidiya

    Senile, illiterate certificate forger and perjurer MuhamMADu Buhari (alias Customs and Exercise, French Franc, Deutch Mark and President Michelle of Western Germany) as well as his criminal APC gang have NOTHING positive to offer Nigeria.

    • Oh!

      …are you not tired? You talk and talk and talk …all to NO Abode!
      A reasonable individual would have searched his soul to see why they are so ignored.
      We are replying you out of pity because you are my people. Search your soul and correct yourself.You are obviously a good write and we can use your services at certain times.

      While we can unilaterally give you a job that does not require senate oversight, such positions are not what we have in mind for people with your talent.
      Your biggest problem is the fact that you talk too much. Not even that…the actual problem is that you talk too much rubbish.
      Clean up your act and we will talk.

      • adeade

        Like you were tired of talking shabbily to GEJ… You have just started..

      • Chuks

        Please leave them to rant on. They are Jonathan’s men, a generation of tribal bigots, sore losers and divisionists. The man’s legacy for his supporters is to abuse people online. Remember they have a full fledged office in Bayelsa dedicated to this .

  • Oh!

    Ndigbos are not necessarily daft. They are our people.But Like the chinese, we push our kids to the limit (with threats of disownnment)!

    Forget ethnic backgrounds, we won’t even allow our children to marry someone from the next village (talk less of state or ethnic background) for the stupifying reason that the suitors village is too close to some ‘evil forrest(- think Ogbanje)

    Ndigbo wants to rule Nigeria because we feel it is our entitlement as the brightest in the land.

    News Flash! Our intelligence is not due to some divine favor. It is same with all Nigerians.

    Every Nigerian that was raised on the normally fishy diet in the South East has the same circumstances that elevate mind power.

    This is mainly due to Docosa Hexaenoic Acid (DHA) which positively affect brain development in infants and is found in the greatest concentrations among fish eating mothers.

    We do not want to ruin your high, but we have to direct you to something called Argungu fishing festival.

    We (Ndigboare) are not as smart as we think we are, we are just prone to making a lot of noise about intelligence….and if you consider it closely enough, making a lot of noise is evidence for the contrary.

    We will do something against our better Judgement and give you information about the very first Igbo President of Nigerian that comes into power with mainly votes from the north,
    He isa Surgeon and his Uzor E.

    So far, all our actions have only served to delay the first Igbo presidency. Continue…….2019 is already gone!
    Keep picking at the scabs and we will guarantee you that what you wrongfully think in your head will become fact: No individual from the South East will EVER rule Nigeria.

    Advice is to Quit your BS and work with the Government we have. It is the right thing to do….otherwise, stay there and keep wishing for Biafra!
    Will Biafra ever happen? Maybe! If it does, it will be the worst thing that ever happened to Ndigbo!

    If and when Biafra is actualized, it will take decades to finalize the inherent Governmental territorial issues. At such a time, it will cost you more money to mine a barrel of oil than it is being sold on the market. You will spend $28 to produce something that you can only sell in the black market for $17 (These are not arbitrary numbers- they are calculated)

    we are talking about renewable energy sources (COP21).
    With that in mind, All the land Biafra thinks it can swing do not have enough surface area to generate anything substantial with regards to solar or wind energy

    It is your candle. As such, burn it however you want…both ends if you like. You can even break it into tiny pieces to give you more ends to burn.

    God bless us all.

  • The Jagaban of corruption has spoken. Nigeria is a joke.

  • TrueNja

    Asiwaju of corruption Tinubu has no shame at all. If you jagaban of rogues don’t know, you are a stain to Buhari and Fashola is a cabal in PMB’s government thus making Buhari to shoot himself in the leg.

  • ceweeco projects

    Thief-nubu and the Muhammadu Buhari-led government in Nigeria is the biggest chance to attain failure…..
    Sadness does not come from bad circumstances. It comes from bad thoughts. Nigerians not okay, We just good at pretending We are.
