''We heard them, even before assuming office, they are asking for patience from Nigerians on their campaign promises, saying what they can’t achieve and that everything should be gradual, what is gradual? Now you know everything should be gradual.
''As Nigerians too, we are not going anywhere, we will keep tracking the government, no tolerance and we must shout on them and they must work for Nigeria. Our PDP government turned Nigeria into a new world and Jigawa State in particular but, just because of selfish interest of a few, they kept sabotaging, blackmailing and intimidating our government.So, we will do the same to the ruling party, no surrender till the end of their tenure in the next four years'',he said.
Tinbu who dismissed rumours of his interest in who leads the legislature said that he has decided to allow all those interested in the leadership of the National Assembly to contest.
"You have heard from the party, you have heard from leadership. I’m a disciplined party man and we will look at it critically.However the nation is expecting us to take a decisive leadership decision and make one meritoriously. Merit will not be compromised. You have to be competent, you have to posses the kind of character required from leaders. You have to be a pan Nigerian and possess a very solid character to lead the National Assembly. That is what we are talking about. It’s not zoning to compromise quality of leadership and competency of an individual.
