Address Insecurity, Economic woes, Ex-Army Gen urges Tinubu


By Nurat Uthman

A retired General of the Nigerian Army, Dr Olu Bajowa, OFR, has urged the newly sworn-in President, Bola Tinubu, to deploy his local and international contacts to address the insecurity challenges and economic woes facing the country.

Bajowa made this call in his congratulatory message to the President on Wednesday in Abuja while expressing optimism that the new administration of the former Lagos governor would be beneficial to all Nigerians.

“I would like to urge Mr President to quickly employ his high network of contacts and connections across the country, including international leverage, as political tools to resolving issues of insecurity, disaffection, and restiveness in some parts of the country to promote inclusiveness, healing, and enhance national cohesion, with true federalism,” Bajowa requested.

He also admonished the president to deploy his capacity, intelligence and courage to steer the ship of the country back to its leading role in Africa and the world, especially in terms of infrastructural development and systemic change.

“I believe that the President can translate the same transformation to a diverse country like Nigeria, which has much bigger and more complex challenges,” the ex-Army General noted.

While describing the victory and emergence of Tinubu as proof of his competence and pedigree, Bajowa remarked further, “Hitherto, Nigerians across all strata of the society have yearned for the emergence of a very strong political persona who truly understands how to navigate the complexities of our country, and who also possesses the requisite experience, competence, capacity, sagacity, intelligence, courage, and commitment, with which you are endowed.

“As a former Special Assistant in the Presidency, during the military interregnum, I can confidently say that you are well prepared for this great office, because of your very solid background in leadership and governance, as attested to by your foresight that had transformed Lagos State into the pride of Africa and world-class economy over the years,” he added.

Bajowa thus pleaded for unity and peace in the country so that Tinubu’s proposed economic and political reforms agenda can be effectively realised.
