Tinubu, who spoke with newsmen after a meeting with President Buhari yesterday argued that it was a norm the world over for new leaders to settle in the office before unfolding their agenda for their country.

He added that change does not come by magic, stressing that it is driven by people and proper planning.
Said he: “May 29th was when this president was sworn in. It is an international norm all over the world, there is an honeymoon period, at least a minimum of 100 days honeymoon. Change is not by magic. It driven by the people, the spirit and the character and the planning.
“We have had so much problem in this country in the past because we ran into policy blind folded without adequate and effective planning, you don’t have results unless you plan well.
“The time it takes you to plan, examine, rejig, re-evaluate is more important than the time you just rush into taking action because you are either being sentimental, being emotional and being driven by other forces that are not expected. It is not fair to jump into those conclusions.
“There must be time to plan, to review and even listen to people. There is a separation between a campaign period, articulating your vision, expressing the promises to Nigerians. There is a time to look at holistically at what you inherited, analysis it, distil and then take action.
“Even in 100 meters race, there is a time to say on your mark, set, ready, go. So you don’t even want a time to be on your mark, set and go? No no no. You are not being fair,” the former Governor said.
He stated that his mission to the Villa was to confer with the president on his recent visit to the United States of America to ensure that his government was right on the track.
Tinubu also denied that President Buhari’s meeting with APC Representatives over the lingering crisis in the National Assembly held on Monday was deadlocked.
“The purpose of this visit is to see my president and our leader. The purpose is to ensure the we are on the right track and coming back from a very successful trip to United States of America.
“As a matter of fact when the National Assembly’s job starts, the job of lawmaking in earnest,  the president needs to step in once in a while as he did to let people to understand the import of the expectations of the public and particularly of the international community on various Programmes and institutions.
“We need to build the institutions, make it viral and effective for the entire country. To step in to douse any conflict is not a wrong thing or do you think is wrong?” He asked.
