Several Nigerians have curiously been waiting for the donation of the national leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, as some statesmen and notable individuals have commenced generous donations to alleviate the harsh condition created by the ravaging coronavirus in Nigeria.
Several Nigerian stakeholders who spoke to this Reporter were of the view that this is the time to know true Nigerian leaders or real friends of the people. They emphasized that at this time of threatening national epidemic, Nigerian politicians should be above board of only thinking of political investments or elections expenditures to win peoples support.
While commending former Vice President Atiku Abubakar for the N50 million donation, beside others, to coronavirus aid, they added that the APC national leader, Tinubu, should also show Nigerans how much love he has for them.
