Oshiomole Chides Buhari, Says Ex-President Responsible For Current Hardship

Senator Adams Oshiomole, has said that Nigerians are still suffering from the effects of the policies of former President Muhammadu Buhari. 


Recently, Nigerians across divides flooded the streets of some states of the federation to protest the protracted increase in the prices of goods and services.


A situation many attributed to the policies of the Tinubu-led government especially the removal of petrol subsidy which saw the soaring hike in the pump price of fuel that has led to untold hardship being faced by Nigerians across the country.


In a contrasting reaction, former Edo state governor Adams Oshiomole said that President Tinubu should not be held responsible for the right or wrong decisions taken by the previous administration


Speaking on Channels TV, Oshiomhole who criticized Buhari’s government for some of its policies, stated that although it was APC that was in power in the last administration, Tinubu was not a member of the cabinet or an adviser.


He noted further; “My first loyalty is to Nigeria. At some point, before the last president left office, I lamented loudly what I saw as reckless policies that were designed to dehumanize the population that was already in pain.


I felt that it was not what the then-president promised. I dissociated myself from those policies and I’m happy that I was not the only one. There were governors who approached the court to denounce some of those policies. It is the long-term consequences of those policies that we are still grappling with now.


“Yes, it is our party platform. Like Tinubu also said, he was not a minister or adviser. He never took a contract in that government and he cannot be held responsible for what the government did right or wrong”.
