His statement reads in part:

“Since the coup d’état in Niger some weeks back, President Tinubu has found himself walking on a very tight rope. He has never been exposed to international diplomacy and can fittingly be called a novice in this field”.

Lamide added that the fact that President Tinubu was an emperor in Lagos politics did not confer on him the knowledge of diplomatic understanding.

However, he maintained that President Tinubu is the luckiest president if he had consulted with the number of former Presidents that Nigeria has had to tap from their knowledge.
