Speaking in an interview with Channels Television, Alake said delegating questions to team members is “one of the innovations” of Tinubu.
“This is one of the innovations of Asiwaju Tinubu. Don’t forget that one of his main solid strengths has been identifying talents,” he said.
“Anybody who has his head properly screwed on his head would know that Asiwaju is the primus inter pares in team building; that is what he sought to display.
“Everybody acknowledges his talents in showcasing professional and technocratic experts in various fields. Those who are saying what you have just said are ignorant of the nuances and dynamics of leadership. Leadership is not a one-man show.
“Successful leadership is one based on a team that is professional and highly skilled. Asiwaju has been noted to be an advocate of that and that is what he displayed.

“Apart from delegating, he also answered questions personally and directly. He wanted to show the calibre of his team and that is what he equally did at the Eko Hotel town hall meeting.
“That style is being copied by some of his opponents but they can’t get the traction because they don’t have the solid team like he has.”
2023 presidency: Bola Tinubu's full speech at Chatham House
In what can be described as an interesting development, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu the All Progressives Congress Presidential candidate, has listed ballot security and election violence as areas of concern in forthcoming 2023 general elections.
Tinubu disclosed when he delivered his speech at the Chatham House, London.
I would like to begin by expressing my delight at being here once again to share my thoughts with this distinguished audience.
The last time I was here in 2013, it was to share my views on the nascent formation of Nigeria’s mega opposition party – the All Progressives Congress[APC]. The party went on to win a historic victory against the ruling PDP in February 2015 and has been in office for almost eight years. Over the years – Chatham House – has carved a niche for itself and built a reputation as a globally admired and respected platform for intellectual engagement on different issues of contemporary interest to people around the world.
