SDP Candidate Adebayo Critiques Tinubu’s Focus on Politics Over Governance

Published on

Prince Adewole Adebayo, the Social Democratic Party’s (SDP) candidate in the 2023 presidential election, has expressed deep concern over President Bola Tinubu’s administration, criticizing its continued focus on politics rather than governance. Eight months into President Tinubu’s tenure, Adebayo observes a troubling trend where essential government functions seem to be overshadowed by political activities.

During an interview, Adebayo questioned the effectiveness of President Tinubu’s leadership, noting a lack of progress in essential areas. He described a scenario where important documents remain untouched and the administration appears stagnant. His primary concern is the success of Tinubu’s presidency, which he believes is crucial for Nigeria’s future. Adebayo, however, is apprehensive about the current trajectory and hopes his doubts will be proven wrong for the nation’s benefit.

Adebayo further elaborated on his views shared on social media, differentiating the skills required for successful politicking from those needed for effective governance. He argues that while political prowess involves dominating opponents, governance requires situational awareness, coordination, and attention to detail. Adebayo suggests that the president needs to establish separate teams devoted to governance and politics to strike a balance.

Addressing allegations of corruption within the Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs and Poverty Alleviation, Adebayo highlighted structural issues that predispose the ministry to malfeasance. He criticized the ministry’s approach to managing funds and called for significant reforms to prevent misuse of resources.

As Ondo State prepares for its governorship election, Adebayo offers advice to the electorate. He urged the people of Ondo to reflect on their political choices and consider alternatives to the ruling party, highlighting the need for a development-focused government. Adebayo compared the state’s situation with other Nigerian states, emphasizing the importance of a long-term development plan and learning from successful models like Akwa Ibom State.

Adebayo’s insights into Nigeria’s political landscape, particularly his critique of President Tinubu’s administration, reflect the complexity of governance in the country. His call for a shift from political maneuvering to effective governance is a reminder of the challenges facing Nigerian leaders and the importance of prioritizing national development over partisan interests.
