Bosun Tijani: Why I insulted Nigeria, Tinubu’s nominee defends controversial tweets



Bosun Tijani, a ministerial nominee of President Bola Tinubu, has explained why he made controversial remarks in tweets that appeared to denigrate the Nigerian state.

Since he was announced as a ministerial nominee on Thursday, August 3, 2023, Tijani has been at the centre of heated arguments on social media after netizens dug out some of his old posts.

In one of the posts dated July 29, 2019, the ministerial nominee expressed his dissatisfaction with the situation of the country, suggesting that he doesn’t appreciate the Nigerian passport and the country as a whole.

Meanwhile, while appearing before the senate for screening on Saturday, August 5, 2023, Tijani, an Information Technology expert, was confronted by Senator Abdulfatai Buhari (Oyo State) to confirm if he still holds the same view about the country.
Tijani said this development left a sour taste in his mouth hence he made the referenced tweet.
He, however, said he is very passionate about Nigeria and remains committed to the development of the country.
