The Senator representing Edo North and former governor,  Senator Adams Oshiomhole, has said  Nigerians should not blame President Bola Tinubu for the untold hardships plaguing the country.

Mr Oshiomhole blamed the hardships on former President Muhammadu Buhari, who orchestrated “reckless” policies “designed to dehumanize” Nigerians.

Mr Oshimhole, who claimed his loyalty to Nigeria takes priority over party support, made this statement during an interview Sunday night on Channels TV regarding how the ruling All Progressives Congress has handled the economy.

“At a point, even before the last president (Mr Buhari) left office, I lamented aloud and denounced aloud what I saw as reckless policies that were designed to dehumanise the population that was already in pain,” Mr Oshimhole said.

The APC chieftain added, “I said I dissociated myself from those policies. I’m happy I wasn’t the only one. There were some governors who felt so strong and went to challenge the policies.”

Mr Oshimhole pointed out that “it is the long-term consequences of some of those policies we are grappling with now,” suggesting the incumbent president should not bear the brunt of Nigerians’ frustration.

“Yes, it is our party platform. But like Tinubu also said, he was never a minister in that government,” Mr Oshiomhole reasoned. “He was never an adviser in that government. He never took (a) contract in that government and cannot be held responsible for what the government did right or wrong.”

Nigerians have witnessed increased hardship, and food prices have skyrocketed due to rising economic inflation.
