President’s children should find jobs to do, stop hanging around presidential villa like invalids – Abati

Reuben Abati, a former aide to ex-president Goodluck Jonathan, has advised sons of President Bola Tinubu, Seyi Tinubu and Yinka Tinubu, to stop hanging around the presidential villa like ‘’jobless invalids.’’

Abati expressed his dissatisfaction on Wednesday, during Arise TVs ‘The Morning Show’ which he co-anchors with fellow journalists Oseni Rufai and two others.

Wondering what the president’s children do for a living, Abati admonished them to do something concrete with their lives at their age and stop being dependent on their father because he occupies the nation’s number one seat.

He also said he felt sorry for their wives who would be feeling embarrassed that their husbands were just hanging around, unable to stand on their own two feet as men.

He said, “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.

“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 men.’’
