When Tinubu Commission Project In Rivers State, They Said He Was Acting As The President – Omatseye

In a post on his Facebook page, popular Nigerian novelist, Sam Omatseye revealed that when the President-elect, Bola Ahmed Tinubu when to Rivers State to commission Governor Nyesom Wike’s project, his opponents paraded him online saying he was acting as if he is President of the country. He stated that the President-elect, Bola Ahmed Tinubu turned their allegations into a teachable moment by telling his opponents to get educated.

He alleged that governor Wike had invited Tinubu in respect to his position as President-elect, but his opponents seized that opportunity to invent lies and claim he was acting as if he is President of Nigeria. However, Omatseye stated that Tinubu’s response to his opponents saying that they should get educated was good because he is just the President-elect and not the President yet, hence he cannot impose the duties of the President.

He said, “But the social media did what it often does best: invent a lie and run with it. President-elect Bola Tinubu turned it into another teachable moment. At the banquet, he responded with the quip: “Get educated.” The next day, he reminded the people that he was only a president-elect, not president. He explained that the request from Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike was a policy request. He was not in a position to act on a policy. That would make him a subvert.”
