Rilwan Akiolu, the Oba of Lagos has advised President Muhammadu Buhari against approaching governance as a military man.


According to Oba Akiolu, Buhari should realize that he is no longer a military man and be civil in his approach
Oba Riliwanu Akiolu Oba Akiolu made this known in Lagos on Monday, August 15, during the unveiling of SunTrust Bank Limited, the first commercial bank to be licensed by the Central Bank of Nigeria in 15 years.
His remark comes even as he noted that former president Goodluck Jonathan could not be totally blamed for the nation’s current economic crisis.


However, Oba Akiolu sought support for President Buhari and expressed confidence in the Federal Government’s Economic Management Team led by Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo to salvage the economy.

Akiolu said: “All of us just have to support the President and I advise him to know that he is no more a military man. I am not afraid to say that.
The measures they are taking on the rot of the past, honestly whether they like it or not, it was not totally the fault of former President Goodluck Jonathan. I don’t hide the fact that he (Jonathan) is my personal friend. All that happened was not totally his fault “But it is not too late to make amend. With Prof. Yemi Osinbajo as head of economic team, with people like Mrs. Nike Akande as the President of the Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry and others, they (the federal government) should listen to advice from people in commercial sector of the economy.
