Nigerians React as Tinubu delegates questions at Chatham House

Nigerians have been talking about the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, asking some of his party members to answer questions he was asked at Chatham House.

Addressing Nigerians and foreigners at Chatham House, Tinubu after his opening remarks, assigned Kaduna Governor Nasir El-Rufai to speak on how he would address insecurity and asked the Director of Strategic Communication of the APC Presidential Campaign Council, Dele Aleke, to respond to the question on oil theft.

Explaining this approach afterwards, Dele Alake, director of strategic communication of the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential campaign council described it as “one of the innovations” of Tinubu and a sign of team building but this hasn't stopped Nigerians from reacting.

Henry, a caller to Jimi Disu's Daily Digest, said that the APC Presidential Candidate was setting a bad precedent by delegating questions

“ This means that when you give me an exam, I have the right to delegate to someone because I have a team that can answer,” he adds.

For Ola, another caller, the criticisms of Tinubu’s methods are unfair and there’s no cause for alarm.

According to him, Tinubu answered some questions and one of the times he delegated and the delegated person was unable to answer, he answered himself and did an excellent job.
