President-elect Bola Ahmed Tinubu will not govern the country from abroad, according to the a spokesman of the now defunct presidential campaign council of the All Progressives Congress, Mr. Bayo Onanuga.

Some Nigerians had said that Tinubu would rule from London like President Muhammadu Buhari, who is currently in the British capital on medical ground.

Featuring on Trust TV’s Daily Politics, the former Managing Director of the News Agency of Nigeria, said that situation would not happen in the Tinubu years.

He also spoke on what the President-elect would most likely do in his first 10 days of assuming office.

Onanuga said: “You cannot imagine the kind of pressure people who are looking for positions in the government are piling on ordinary members of the committee, not to talk of the President-elect. People have been bringing all manner of requests.

“So, as the press release rightly pointed out, the travel was just to avoid pressure and distraction.

“He wanted to go to London to see his grandchildren. But I think that at the last minute, he decided not to go. He came back home instead.

“Also, he was in Saudi Arabia before the elections, so he decided not to go there again. So he decided to cut those ones and then decided to come home”.

On whether Tinubu would settle fully in Nigeria and face the challenges ahead, Onanuga said: “I believe he would do so. But you know we now live in a global village, as they say.

“So, even if he is in Russia, he can hold zoom meetings and do all kinds of things. But I can assure you that he will be here physically to do his job. He will not be an absentee kind of president”.
