Adams Oshiomhole, the senator representing Edo North Senatorial District, said Nigerians are still suffering from the impact of the policies of ex-President Muhammadu Buhari.
Many Nigerians believe that some of the policies introduced by the Tinubu-led government, especially the removal of petrol subsidy, which tripled the pump price of fuel, have led to untold hardship being experienced across the Nation
The senator said he criticized Buhari’s government for some of its policies.
He said, “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. Some governors approached the court to denounce some of those policies. It is the long-term consequences of those policies that we are still grappling with.”
He said that although it was the APC that was in power in the last administration, Tinubu was not a member of the cabinet or an adviser.
“Yes, it is our party platform. Like Tinubu also said, he was not a minister or adviser. He never took a contract with that government, and he cannot be held responsible for what the government did right or wrong,” he said.
