Former Lagos State Governor, Asiwaju Ahmed Tinubu, has said the change Nigerians seek cannot be served like instant coffee, it has to be gradual. Tinubu who is one of the leaders of the governing All Progressives Congress, said this during a meeting with the Chief John Odigie-Oyegun-led National Working Committee of the party at the APC National Secretariat, in Abuja, on Wednesday.

He spoke before reporters were asked to leave the hall for the party leaders to meet behind closed doors. Tinubu said, “Change cannot be served like instant coffee, we have to grow it, we have to face challenges. I sympathise with us and I want us to also look at ourselves (as a party) since we won the last elections that expectations were very high and the good will was extremely very high but where are we today?

“My mission is to seek opinions and advice on the various conflicts we have in some states, or if there is any national one to reconcile, move the party in a cohesive manner, and reposition if any.”
