The National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has shed lights on the delay in the release of ministerial list and at the same time, blasted the opposition Peoples Democratic Party for constant attack on the president.

He said this while speaking with State House correspondents after visiting President Muhammadu Buhari along with Chief Bisi Akande, the first chairman of the party, at the Presidential Villa, Abuja on Wednesday evening.

“There is pitfall in rushing, quick fix, depending upon the depth of the rot. And that rush can cascade into mistakes of unimaginable magnitude. There is equally glory and recovery in slowness, when you have a slow fix of a bad foundation.

“So to me, I would rather take the one that will last the country and endure for a longer period of time than the rush hour shopping,” he said.

Tinubu disagreed with the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) claim that President Buhari was dictatorial.

“I disagree with that. He was elected on a platform of democracy, he has adhered to rule of law so far. What is dictatorship about what he has done? He has helped to stimulate the economy in the various states and that is where the people are. So what is dictatorship?

“And the institutional paralysis had occurred in the country. It is very important for a steady man like the President to really help the nation recover from the paralysis and that is what he is doing. So I don’t see what is dictatorial about that,” he said.

He asked the PDP to keep silent if it has nothing meaningful to say.

“If they don’t have anything to say, they rather be quiet. They created what is wrong here today and we can’t sweep that under the carpet. There must be rule of law,” he added.
