Oshiomhole Defends Tinubu: Says Blame for Nigeria’s Economic Woes Lies with Buhari’s Policies

Former Edo State Governor and Senator representing Edo North, Adams Oshiomhole, makes a bold assertion, exonerating President Bola Tinubu from blame for Nigeria’s economic challenges, attributing them instead to the policies of the former administration under President Muhammadu Buhari. Oshiomhole’s remarks, made during a candid interview on Channels TV, shed light on the complexities of Nigeria’s political landscape and the lingering impact of past governance decisions.

In his candid assessment, Oshiomhole condemns what he describes as the “reckless policies” of the Buhari administration, which he contends were detrimental to the well-being of Nigerians and contributed to the nation’s ongoing economic struggles. He expresses his dismay at witnessing policies that appeared to further burden an already suffering population, emphasizing his commitment to Nigeria’s welfare above partisan allegiances.

Oshiomhole recalls his vocal opposition to the policies of the previous administration, emphasizing his refusal to endorse measures that he believed would exacerbate the hardships faced by Nigerians. He applauds fellow governors who joined him in challenging these policies through legal means, underscoring the collective effort to address the adverse consequences of past governance decisions.

However, Oshiomhole emphasizes that despite President Tinubu’s affiliation with the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), he should not be held culpable for the actions of his predecessor. Drawing a clear distinction between party affiliation and individual responsibility, Oshiomhole defends Tinubu against unwarranted criticism, highlighting his non-involvement in the Buhari administration’s decision-making process.

Acknowledging Tinubu’s own remarks on the matter, Oshiomhole echoes the sentiment that Tinubu, as a non-government official, cannot be held accountable for the successes or failures of the previous administration. He emphasizes Tinubu’s lack of ministerial or advisory roles during the Buhari era, emphasizing that Tinubu’s integrity remains intact despite the challenges faced by the nation.

In a passionate defense of Tinubu, Oshiomhole refrains from joining the chorus of criticism directed at him, asserting that Tinubu bears no responsibility for Nigeria’s current economic predicament. He attributes the nation’s economic woes to a legacy of unsustainable debt accumulation and misguided policies inherited from previous administrations, deflecting blame from Tinubu and redirecting it towards systemic issues.

As Nigeria grapples with the complexities of its economic challenges, Oshiomhole’s defense of Tinubu serves as a reminder of the intricate dynamics within the political landscape. His remarks highlight the need for nuanced analysis and accountability in assessing Nigeria’s governance trajectory, urging stakeholders to focus on constructive dialogue and collective solutions rather than assigning blame.
