Tinubu Holds Closed-Door Meeting With Babangida

President Bola Tinubu visited the former Military President, General Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida, at his hilltop residence in Minna, Niger State.

Truth Live News gathered that the two leaders had the closed doors meeting to discuss the state of the nation.

President Tinubu had left the venue of the inauguration of the agricultural mechanization projects executed by the state governor, Mohammed Bago in Minna, straight for the hilltop residence of the former military leader in the capital city.

Speaking earlier at the flag-off of the agricultural mechanization revolution for food security and the commissioning of the remodelled domestic terminal of the Bola Ahmed Tinubu International Airport in Minna, the President appealed to state governments to adopt the wage award saying that the National Executive Council would also adopt it.

He also explained that it is not in his character to blame past administrations for the socio-economic and security challenges in Nigeria as he is committed to taking the right actions to re-engineer the finances of the country and stay on the right path to achieve progress.

Tinubu said, his concern is not to blame the past governments but to embark on the right reforms to set the nation on the path of prosperity.

“When you read the papers, some of us are confused whether to abuse the present or the past (governments) or make excuses for the future,” the President told the gathering which was graced by governors including the host, Mohammed Umar Bago, as well as agriculture enthusiasts.

“It is not in my dictionary,” the President stated matter-of-factly, adding that his focus is to “take action now, do your best, re-engineer the finances of the country and stay ahead of the right path. Those who may be complaining now have to understand that perseverance and consistency will make a nation great.”
