Tinubu said the rot the PDP left Nigeria in will take some time to be fixed, as protesters stormed his residence
Tinubu was speaking when a clutch of protesters led by Moremi Ojudu, paid him a visit on Monday.
Moremi is daughter of Babafemi Ojudu, Special Adviser on political affairs to President Muhammadu Buhari.
The protesters were part of the #I StandWithNigeria protests staged across Nigeria.
In a statement sent to Pulse before the protest march, Ms. Ojudu had said "These are not ordinary times in the history of our dear country and that is why we have taken the initiative to lead a procession to the house of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, a man who needs no introduction, the pathfinder and architect of the current government.

"Dear friends and compatriots, we are rallying because we are burdened and saddened by the turn of events in our country.
"Again, we the Nigerian Youth have been called to rescue our ship of state and we must not fail. We shall be presenting a letter to the APC national leader and we shall hear his thoughts on the turn of events".
In his response, Tinubu said the APC will eventually get it right, given the mess the PDP left the country for 16 years.
"We are just two years into the administration. To make those changes..effective and positive eventually, you have to be patient. The damage of 16 years has eaten into the system.
"I am not worried about the exchange rate because your salary should be in Naira and you are not an importer. Maybe that is even teaching us a lesson to be dependent on our domestic product", Tinubu said.
Nigerians have been protesting economic hardship occasioned by a slump in the global price of oil and poor economic choices.
