Buhari’s “I belong to everybody and I belong to nobody” is not targeted at me – Tinubu
The national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, has said that President Muhammadu Buhari’s “I belong to everybody and I belong to nobody” is not targeted at him as widely speculated by many.
Tinubu while speaking during the launching of a book, “Nigeria on firmer ground, towards lasting peace and progress” written on the achievement of President Buhari’s administration by presidential media team said he liked the lines by the president
Represented by a former Lagos state commissioner of Information, Dele Alake, Tinubu said President Buhari has achieved a lot in his time in office despite our strained financial condition due to shrunken oil prices.
He said: “Peoople have murmured his inaugural address statement that “I belong to everybody and I belong to nobody” was aimed at me. Well, I find that strange indeed as those words were what I wanted him to say and wanted him to be.”
“Unlike others whose stated policy is to enrich friends, Buhari took the nobler position that it was better to help the millions of hard working but anonymous common folk instead of maintaining the national economy in the status of a festive party for a select few.
“Through focused policies, the Buhari administration has set the foundation for enduring growth of a diversifying economy not unduly reliant on an increasingly unreliable foreign appetite for crude oil,” he said.
Also reviewing the book, a former governor of Ogun state, Segun Osoba, said president Buhari has done creditably well and that, those calling Trader Moni vote-buying “are fools.”
