In a candid interaction with the press, Gowon emphasized the importance of time for the new administration to effectively tackle the inherited issues across various sectors. “Every leader in Nigeria’s helm faces scrutiny and criticism. However, based on the actions and intentions observed and reported across media platforms, it’s clear that President Tinubu’s government is making strides to confront these national concerns,” Gowon remarked.

Highlighting the unrealistic expectations for immediate solutions, he further added, “Criticism is part of leadership. But understanding the complexities of governance, I believe it’s imperative for Nigerians to give the President adequate time to implement his policies for tangible outcomes. Expecting immediate perfection is premature.”
