Tinubu assigns proxies to answer questions on how to govern Nigeria

Bola Tinubu, the presidential candidate of the All Progressive Congress (APC) on Monday assigned some of his surrogates to answer questions on how he intends to govern if elected president next year.

Mr Tinubu was invited to address the UK think-tank after which questions were posed to him and he began assigning them to his proxies who accompanied him to the event.

Dele Alake, one was his campaign spokesperson, was asked to respond to how the ruling party’s candidate intends to tackle the disturbing rate of oil theft while Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna was directed to respond to questions on security.

Governor Ben Ayade of Cross River spoke on youth development and inclusion while Wale Edun, a former Lagos finance commissioner answered the question on job creation.

House speaker, Femi Gbajabiamila spoke on defence while Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos took the question on youth inclusion in politics and governance.

The APC candidate argues that he directed his proxies to answer the questions to showcase his teamship. This, Nigerians on social media claim might not be unconnected to his incoherence at public functions of late.
