Arise TV On-Air Presenter and former Media Aide to the President, Reuben Abati has expressed concern over Tinubu’s son’s being given priority over Ministers.

Abati Reuben served as Media Aide to Ex-President Goodluck Ebele Johnathan, and currently anchors the ‘The Morning Show’ on AriseTv alongside his fellow Journalist; Rufai Oseni amongst others.

He described the report of Tinubu’s sons being given priority over Ministers on the protocol list during Tinubu’s trip to Qatar as worrisome

“May we begin to ask, What do the president’s children do for a living? I don’t know specifically how old they are but looking at them, by the time I was their age, I was doing something concrete with my life. I got a PhD at 24. I wasn’t depending on any father,” he said.

He admonished President Tinubu for including Yinka and Seyi on his team’s recent visit to Qatar, and granting them diplomatic precedence over his ministers.

“What I am saying is that first Nigerians complain that they should not have been on that list, the issue raised there is that yes if their father is paying for them to be there, fine. I also raised the question if they have relevant qualifications, if they are business people in their own rights, they can bring investment and they will make contributions.

“Then you will say they have a reason to be there, What I found disturbing in that video that we just showed, we just showed the order of protocol, I spent four years studying diplomacy. They were coming on the order of protocol before the minister of the Federal Republic, what are their roles there that they will be put before the minister?

He further noted, “People must get to a stage in their lives when they will hold themselves together, I don’t want adults behaving like invalids hanging around just because your father is in a position.

“All these children of privilege sometimes overdo it, and these are boys that would probably have wives at home. Some of these girls, what they go through is very embarrassing. You can’t have a husband that’s just hanging around, that cannot stand on his two feet as a man”
