Tinubu Pleads with Nigerians to allow Buhari 100-day Honeymoon Period
The national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, has begged Nigerians to give President Muhammadu Buhari 100 days “honeymoon” period to enjoy the office before forming an opinion on his performance.
The former governor of Lagos State and senator was speaking with State House correspondents shortly after a meeting with the President.
Jagaban said, “May 29th was when this President was sworn in. It is an international norm all over the world, there is a honeymoon period – at least minimum of 100 days honeymoon – and you won’t allow honeymoon at all?
“You said change is not coming, change is not by magic. It is driven by the people, the spirit and the character, and the planning.

“We have had so much problem in this country in the past because we run into policy blind-folded; without adequate and effective planning you don’t have results unless you plan well.
“The time it takes you to plan, examine, rejig, re-evaluate is more important than the time you just rush into taking action because you are either being sentimental, being emotional and being driven by other forces that are not expected. It is not fair to jump into those conclusions.
“There must be time to plan, to review and even listen to people. There is a separation between a campaign period, articulating your vision, and expressing the promises to Nigerians.
“There is a time to look at holistically what you inherited, analysis it, distil and then take action.
“Even in 100 metres race, there is a time to say ‘on your mark, set, ready, go’. So you don’t even want a time to be on your mark, set and go? No, no, no. You are not being fair.”
