Reduce Expectations in Tinubu, Shehu Tell Nigerians

Malam Garba Shehu, a former presidential aide, has advised Nigerians to have less faith in President Bola Tinubu’s ability to run the country.

He stated this on Friday while speaking during the 21st Daily Trust Annual Dialogue organized by the Trust Media Group in Abuja.

Former President Muhammadu Buhari was characterized by the former presidential spokesman as a victim of the expectation crisis.

He advised Nigerians to reduce their expectations of political leaders and to take a lesson from the previous administration.

Shehu said, “President Muhammadu Buhari is a victim of the crisis of expectations and I think that the lesson for Nigerians from what I saw during the Buhari period and even Tinubu is, that Nigerians should begin to lower their expectations on political leaders.

“This is because these expectations are simply inhuman. Leaders can do a lot of things but no leader can do everything.

“During the time of Buhari, travellers to the Eastern Region used to spend about three days on the road, but after massive investment in infrastructure by Buhari, the travel time has reduced to about six hours.

“The government then also banned the importation of rice; after that, our farmers became so productive that production of rice skyrocketed and we were even feeding the whole of West Africa.”
