Senator Adams Oshiomhole, representing Edo North, has pointed fingers at the “reckless policies” of former President Muhammadu Buhari, attributing Nigeria’s current economic hardships to their implementation.
Oshiomhole, a former national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), asserted that he had vehemently protested against these policies during Buhari’s tenure, denouncing them as detrimental to the already-struggling populace.
The former governor of Edo State emphasized his loyalty to Nigeria while distancing himself from the policies, stating that he was not alone in opposing them. He highlighted that several governors had also taken legal action to challenge these policies, the ramifications of which continue to burden the nation.
Addressing inquiries regarding President Bola Tinubu’s involvement in the economic challenges, Oshiomhole defended Tinubu, asserting that he should not be held accountable for decisions made by the previous administration.
While affirming his allegiance to the APC, Oshiomhole clarified that neither he nor Tinubu held ministerial or advisory positions in the former government, absolving them of responsibility for its actions.
