The ‘Baba Go Slow’ question came up.

The answer (PMB never shies away from an opportunity to respond to this): “I’m going to be slow and steadfast!”

PMB in response to question about pace of anti-corruption war: “Whoever calls me Baba-go-slow, I’m very conscious of historical antecedents, you know what happened to me the last time... people [now] have to be proven guilty before they are locked up.” #PMBinDubai
Departure Ceremonies: President @MBuhari departs Dubai for Abuja | April 9, 2019 | #PMBinDubai
PMB (Apr 9): “Before TSA everybody was doing their own thing, operating multiple bank accounts. Now All Govt revenue must go there, and when it comes out you can trace it. It’s a very unpopular decision but I feel relieved that people have to account for whatever they manage.”
PMB: Nigeria’s problem is not a lack of rules and regulations. It’s about actual behavior. A lot of people will commit to memory all the paperwork, and then proceed to do what they want.
