In a post on his Facebook handle on Friday,he challenged the TIME MAGAZINE to tell the whole world how Tinubu fought the Military to bring democracy to Nigeria.
His Words”Bola Ahmed Tinubu making TIME Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People List in the world in 2023 is a stain on the magazine’s reputation of close to a century as being the most authoritative and informative guide to what is happening in current affairs, politics, business, health, science and entertainment.
“Journalists of Time magazine sitting in their office in New York without carrying out proper investigation concluded that Tinubu helped. Nigeria to restore democracy in 1999 after fighting military rule. How?
