Babatunde Fashola, the Minister of Works and Housing, has made a new revelation on the President-elect, Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
He revealed that Tinubu is “very nocturnal.”
According to him, his former boss does his best work in the dead of the night.
Fashola served as Tinubu’s Chief of Staff from 2003-2007 while he was the governor of Lagos State before succeeding him as governor.
Speaking on Channels Television’s Sunday Politics, the minister warned those that will work with Tinubu in the presidency to brace up themselves, stressing that he micromanages even more than President Muhammadu Buhari.
He said, “I was his [Tinubu’s] Chief of Staff for four and a half years. I took over from Lai Mohammed. And in terms of controlling Asiwaju’s schedule, that was a stretch. Because he has day and night schedules.
“And for those who are going to work with him [in the presidency], let me warn them, he is very nocturnal. I hope he changes. So, he will wake you up at night. He does his best work in the dead of the night. Unless you can push back and clean your space at night, he will encroach on it.
“He is very detailed. He micromanages. More than President Buhari. I was talking to somebody and I said ‘Imagine if they are two football coaches, President Buhari is the type of coach that will prepare his team and then go and sit and watch them play for 90 minutes. He trusts them. But Asiwaju will be that kind of coach playing the game with them. Those are the two differences that you will see between them. One delegates completely, while the other delegates and stays with you.”
