Tinubu: Lagos Assembly to send commendation letters to Buhari, others



 Tinubu Lagos Assembly to send commendation letters to Buhari others
The Lagos State  parliament has passed a resolution to send commendation letter to President Muhammadu Buhari and others for ensuring a credible presidential primary election that produced the APC candidate,  Sen. Bola Tinubu.
The House of Assembly directed its Clerk, Mr Lekan Onafeko, to write commendation letters to Southern and Northern APC governors and the Conference of Speakers of State Assemblies and the National Assembly.
The House passed the resolution at the resumption of plenary, presided over by the Speaker, Mudashiru Obasa on Monday.
The lawmakers also resolved to send a congratulatory message to Tinubu, who the lawmakers called a ‘golden fish’.
In his contribution, Obasa said the outcome of the primary election was worth celebrating, especially in relation to the number of people who supported and played various roles to ensure Tinubu’s victory.
According to him, the action of the Northern governors had further deepened democracy and unity.
The speaker noted that ahead of the convention, the APC governors in the North had resolved to support a Southern aspirant.
“That singular action of the Northern governors is proof and testimony that Nigeria’s democracy has come to stay and Nigeria will continue to exist as one.
“This goes beyond giving the APC presidential candidate support and shows that in togetherness, we can take this country forward.
“The emergence of Asiwaju gives hope that there are better days ahead where we would have an egalitarian society.
“We have absolute confidence in him that he can do it again just as he had done before,” he said.
Onasa urged stakeholders and party leaders to intensify their support for Tinubu ahead of the general elections.
On his part, a lawmaker, Abdulsubur Olayiwola, described Tinubu as a political warlord just as he argued that the presidential candidate’s Abeokuta declaration helped his victory.
Commenting, Mr Tobun Abiodun noted that Nigeria as a nation just got lucky because by 2023, the country would have a president who had the grace to move this country to greater heights.
Also contributing, the Majority Leader of the House, Mr Sanai Agunbiade, described Tinubu as a man whose time to lead the country had come.
While commending Obasa, Agunbiade added: “We must go back to our constituencies and ensure that those who would vote for Tinubu secure their Permanent Voters Cards (PVCs).
Speaking, Mr Gbolahan Yishawu, said Tinubu reaped what he had sowed many years when he was the governor of Lagos with his victory at the convention.

Two Signs APC Still Not Ready to Govern After Buhari By Farooq Kperogi It’s OK to despise PDP and Atiku Abubakar. I do, too. But the truth is that, of Nigeria’s major political parties, only PDP has shown a readiness to govern at the national level from day one. We may not like how they’ll govern, but they’re at least coherent, earnest, transparent, and predictable. The party held its convention on schedule and submitted the name of its vice presidential candidate to INEC on deadline–with little or no internal rancor. APC, on the other hand, needed to extend the date of its convention by one week. Even so, it almost asked for another extension, and its poorly conducted convention spilled over to the following day. It also couldn’t turn in the name of its vice presidential candidate to INEC on deadline and instead submitted a “placeholder,” a vexing political anomaly Nigeria hadn’t witnessed before, which smaller parties have sadly quickly copied. That bespeaks a disorganized, ramshackle, “fire-brigade,” spur-of-the-moment, not-ready-for-prime-time political party. No party can effectively govern a sick, complex country like Nigeria with such indiscipline, insouciance, and planlessness. Should the party be voted into power in 2023, given its aggravating indiscipline and incompetence in organizing a mere convention and appointment a running mate to its presidential candidate, you can bet that it will repeat Buhari’s template of delaying the appointment of ministers and constituting boards of government agencies by several months. Or worse. We all know how that turned out for Buhari–and Nigeria. Governance never took off, directionlessness took over, a recession hit, and the economy tanked. The country hasn’t recovered up to now. It seems indecision, indiscipline, impunity, and ineptitude are inescapably inserted into APC’s DNA. For example, after its delegates convention, the party is now busy removing the names of people who won primary elections and replacing them with the names of party hon honchos who didn’t participate in the primaries. It is said that indecision is the graveyard of good intentions. APC doesn’t even have good intentions to start with. So, it’s burdened with a double whammy of indecision and no intentions.L
