2023: PDP Senator, Nnamani Reveals How Tinubu Will Make Nigeria Work

by Victor Ndubuisi

According to Dr. Chimaroke Nnamani, a senator from Enugu East who is running for president in the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu was the most successful governor between the years of 1999 and 2007 when democracy finally came to Nigeria after many years of military rule.

He said that Tinubu, a former governor of both Lagos State and Enugu State, had remarked that governors from the class of 1999 might still be the country’s leading system architects and political reformers.

He maintained that “Tinubu will replicate the successes in Lagos across the country and has the capacity to revamp the economy and make Nigeria work for all.”

In a statement he released on Friday in Abuja, Nnamani—who is also the chairman of the Senate Committee on Cooperation and Integration in Africa/NEPAD—expressed similar sentiments.


He claimed that the class of 1999 governors had a difficult start because the majority of them inherited a state that was in disrepair across the board as a result of several years of military control.

Nnamani said, “All we had was pure joy in our electorates’ hearts because they had a democratically elected governor. From health to education to the economy and security, Lagos state and many other states were in turmoil as a result of years of military rule but Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu made the most progress out of all of us in reforms of various sectors, with Enugu State coming in second.

“This large progress came as a result of assembling 23 best brains in Lagos state to examine each sector of Lagos economy and provide a workable solution to its unique challenges”.

He said that in the education sector under Tinubu, “they discovered that out of the 7,877 classrooms that were available, 5,908 needed renovation,” adding that “with 682,000 students, the 7,877 classrooms were insufficient due to the UNESCO standard of 1:25 students per classroom.”

The statement reads, “The Asiwaju-led administration was tasked with figuring out how to add 5,768 more classrooms to the existing ones, saying that he rose to the challenges by erecting new elementary, junior secondary and senior secondary schools in Lagos between 1999 and 2007 to address this issue.

“Asiwaju-led government consequently embarked on human capital development to guarantee that pupils received the finest education possible with a series of staff training and development programs in various courses, seminars, and workshops.


“Numerous principals were sponsored to travel to Cape Town, Nairobi, and Auckland between 1999 and 2007. In total, more than 100 instructors received training in Nigeria and other French-speaking African nations.

“Provision of computer systems to the ministry, SUBEB, TEPO, and six school districts. In order to keep up with the most recent global educational trends, Lagos State under Tinubu funded the training of 1,400 teachers to teach the recently introduced family life health education by the National Council on Education.


Nnamani said that as a result, Lagos state became the first to adopt and implement FLHE.

The backlog of more than 25,000 diploma, degree, and postgraduate certificates was cleared, he claimed, and Lagos State University also established online course registration, fee processing, and result checking. He added that the Tinubu-led government also had an impact on the tertiary institution.

The Lagos State University College of Medicine, Nnamani said, was founded by Tinubu to provide top-notch medical training and facilitated the accreditation in 2005, which enabled the first class of medical doctors graduating in 2006.
