Tinubu Has Started On Good Note, Needs To Unveil Master Plan For Nigeria – The Guardian Columnist, Dare Babarinsa


A Nigerian popular columnist with The Guardian Newspapers, Dare Babarinsa has stated that President Bola Ahmed Tinubu started on a good note, and needed to unveil a master plan for Nigeria.

Writing on, ‘”The president would be held into account”, in the recent Guardian newspaper, Babarinsa said Tinubu created a Master Plan for Lagos State when he was elected governor, adding that the plan was still being implemented by his successors, including the incumbent governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu.

He wrote, “In 1999, Tinubu was elected the governor of Lagos State. He decided to create the Master Plan for Lagos State, which is still being implemented by his successors, including the incumbent Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu. Now is the time for him to unveil a Master Plan for Nigeria.

“We need to know where we are going in the next 25 years. After all, the journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step. The president would be accountable for his pronouncements.

“For weeks and years to come, the inaugural speech would be studied and dissected in the wake of performance and promises kept or broken. He has started on a good note. Now he has to keep faith with our expectations.”

The columnist, who said subsidy crept into the Nigerian public spending in the first instance because Nigerian leaders believed there was a lot of money, highlighted the fact that it had dawned on political class leaders that the country had stepped into trillions of debts and could simply not afford the luxury of petroleum subsidy.
