The APC Presidential Candidate; Bola Ahmed Tinubu on Monday spoke at the Chatham House in the United Kingdom where he was engaged in his action plan for Nigeria and about the controversy concerning his age and refusal to attend the debate.

During the engagement, Tinubu had asked some persons on his team, including Femi Gbajabiamila; speaker of the house of representatives, and Nasir El-Rufai; governor of Kaduna, to answer questions on his behalf.

Tinubu’s action, however, elicited reactions on social media with Nigerians questioning his decision not to answer all the questions himself.

    Incidentally, the Director of Strategic Communications of the APC Presidential Campaign Council; Dele Alake has given reasons why Bola Tinubu delegated questions while giving an address at the Chatham House.

    Alake, while speaking in an interview with Channels Television said that delegating questions to team members is “one of the innovations” of Tinubu.

    “This is one of the innovations of Asiwaju Tinubu. Don’t forget that one of his main solid strengths has been identifying talents,” he said.

      “Anybody who has his head properly screwed on his head would know that Asiwaju is the primus inter pares in team building; that is what he sought to display.

      “Everybody acknowledges his talents in showcasing professional and technocratic experts in various fields. Those who are saying what you have just said are ignorant of the nuances and dynamics of leadership. Leadership is not a one-man show.

      “Successful leadership is one based on a team that is professional and highly skilled. Asiwaju has been noted to be an advocate of that and that is what he displayed.

        “Apart from delegating, he also answered questions personally and directly. He wanted to show the caliber of his team and that is what he equally did at the Eko Hotel town hall meeting.

        “That style is being copied by some of his opponents, but they can’t get the traction because they don’t have the solid team he has.”
