The national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, said it would have been disastrous for Nigeria if former president Goodluck Jonathan had been re-elected in the March 28, presidential poll.
Tinubu was reacting to a statement by former President Goodluck Jonathan that he had a good team to work with when he was piloting the affairs of the country.
He said the entire banking system would have collapsed due to the several acts of corruption perpetrated by Jonathan’s aides.
Former president Jonathan’s appraisal of his cabinet was contained in separate congratulatory letters to the new President of the African Development Bank, Dr Akinwunmi Adesina; and the Vice-President of the World Bank, Arunma Oteh.
Akinwunmi served as agriculture minister under the Jonathan-led administration while Oteh was the Director-General of the Securities and Exchange Commission.
Meanwhile, Tinubu, has said that education is a top priority of the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.
Tinubu disclosed this over the weekend at the maiden convocation of Adeleke University, Ede in Osun state, where he was awarded a honorary doctorate degree in Political Science and Diplomacy.
