AU Assembly: Setting the Scene

The 37th Ordinary Session of the African Union (AU) Assembly commenced in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, bringing together leaders from AU member states.

The assembly’s agenda encompasses diverse topics, including the theme of the year focused on education, regional peace and security, continental development, AU reform, and Africa’s global engagement.

Public Opinion: Criticism and Discontent

Michael’s Perspective:

One Nigerian, Michael, expressed disappointment and sarcasm, implying that Tinubu, referred to as ‘President’ sarcastically, attended the conference only to doze off.

This commentary highlights a perception of inefficiency or lack of engagement on Tinubu’s part, contrasting with his responsibility to represent Nigerian interests.

Pretty’s Critique:

Another commentator, Pretty, echoed Michael’s sentiment, suggesting that Tinubu’s behavior was an embarrassment to Nigeria.

By emphasizing the contrast with former President Buhari’s active participation in international summits, Pretty underscores a sense of disillusionment with Tinubu’s performance on the global stage.

Comparisons and Expectations

The comparison with past leaders, particularly Buhari, illustrates a standard of conduct that Nigerians expect from their representatives on the international platform.

Tinubu’s perceived failure to uphold this standard has led to public scrutiny and disappointment, with citizens questioning his suitability for leadership roles.
