our Editor-in-Chief Bayo Olupohunda It added:“While we do not envy the Asiwaju his

privilege to believe he can push his ambition for the presidency at all cost, we nevertheless

find it ridiculous that he still thinks he can can get away with this latest rap on national growth

after having stood against it for quite long.” “Tinubu’s concern for national growth was

certainly missing at the inception of this administration when he vehemently stood

against the formation of an inclusive government against the advice of the leadership

of the Northern Elders Forum for Buhari to appoint an Igbo as Secretary to the federal government.”
