Tinubu's Appointments: So far reasonable, not perfect—Bode George

A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Chief Olabode George, has said that it is too early to evaluate President Bola Tinubu's administration.

Speaking on Channels Televisions 'Politics Today, George insisted that the President needs a lot of good advisers, Introspection said, "Tinubu's methodology so far is 'reasonable, but not perfect'.

He said, "The major difference between Bola and me is his methodology. His managerial style is not like mine. I have a background in the military. You don't carry your men to war without adequately doing serious planning and intelligence gathering.

"So it is too early in the day. It is not a 100-meter dash race. He is to manage the people and the resources of this country for the betterment of the Nigerian people. In other words, his start is reasonable but not perfect.

"At least, it is better than what we knew before when he was in Lagos. … I have worked for Gen. Babangida, Baba Obasanjo, and Jonathan, among others. It is not an easy job; the only thing is that you pray for whoever is there.

"It is not a matter of totalitarianism or that you know it all syndrome. You need a lot of good advisers, you need a lot of introspection, and now he's doing some balancing; it may not be perfect, but it is reasonable."

Asked about the federal character of the security chief's appointment, he said, "It is still reasonable. The founding fathers of the PDP divided Nigeria into six geo-political zones; it was not in our constitution.

"What got me a little bit worried was that the Secretary to the Government announced the appointment of smaller units. That should be done by the naval council or the military council."
