El-Rufai & 6 Other APC Members Who Answered Tinubu’s Questions At Chatham House



All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu was at Chatham House on Monday, December 5 to speak on his plans for Nigerians if elected in 2023. The event which was televised live on national television had many Nigerians glued on their screens.

However, in a move that shocked many Nigerians, the APC presidential candidate delegated some of the questions he was asked to members of his delegation. lists the 7 APC chieftains who answered questions on behalf of Tinubu at the parley.

1. Babajide Sanwo-Olu

The incumbent Lagos state governor took the question on youth inclusion in politics and governance at the event. Before the governor answered the question, Tinubu hailed Sanwo-Olu, saying he (the state chief executive) is continuing with his personal legacy in Lagos.

2. Femi Gbajabimila

The Speaker of the House of Representatives answered a question on national defence at the event on behalf of Tinubu. According to the Speaker, the plans of Tinubu on the subject matter are consistent with the policies of the ruling APC.

3. Betta Edu

She is the national women leader of the APC. But beyond that, Edu is a thorough health-care professional who became popular during her stint as the commissioner of health in Cross River state. She answered the question on health on behalf of Tinubu.

4. Dele Alake

The former Lagos state commissioner of information answered the question on oil theft after it was assigned to him by Tinubu. Hours later, Alake was on Channels Television, justifying Tnubu’s mode of answering the questions through his surrogates.

5. Ben Ayade

Tinubu assigned the question on youth development and inclusion to the Cross River state governor. It is not clear why the governor was assigned to answer the question as he hasn’t demonstrated reasonable efforts in empowering youths in his domain.

6. Nasir El-Rufai

Another mistake by Tinubu as the Kaduna governor was assigned to answer the question on security while a former Chief of Army Staff, Abdulrahman Dambazau was in the entourage of the former Lagos state governor. Under El-Rufai’s government, over 1, 000 Kaduna residents were killed in 2021 alone.

7. Wale Edun

An economic guru and former commissioner of finance in Lagos state, he was assigned the question on job creation.

Edun said the Tinubu administration would essentially be about private sector-driven economic growth, and foreign direct investment would also be key in that process.
