Presidency and Atiku clash over Tinubu’s policies


The Presidency, through the special adviser to the President on information and strategy, Bayo Onanuga has lambasted Atiku Abubakar over his critic views on the policies of President Tinubu.

Bayo via a tweet indulged Atiku, asking him to admit that the present Tinubu administration inherited an unhealthy economy from his predecessor.

The presidential aide in a series of tweets accused the former vice president of not basing his assertions on facts, adding that Nigeria currently enjoys the lowest cost of living in Africa.

Bayo while enlisting some of Tinubu’s economic policies like fuel subsidy removal challenged Atiku, asking what he would have done differently if ever elected.

Excerpts of the statement reads:



Alhaji Atiku Abubakar has certainly found a new hobby to keep himself busy, having failed to achieve his lifelong ambition of becoming the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. He is increasingly carving for himself the role of opposition-in-chief to President Bola Ahmed Tinubu and his government.

However, we notice that the former Vice-President, just like in his political contests, is also doing a poor job of it, offering pedestrian and uninformed interventions on our economy and other matters of public concerns.

Atiku’s latest diatribe was another uncharitable commentary on the state of the economy and the efforts of the President Bola Tinubu administration in remoulding it for sustained prosperity.

Nigerians can easily see through the hypocrisy of Alhaji Atiku, who in accusing President Tinubu of poor response to the nation’s challenges and causing pains and despair, didn’t offer any better policy options in his run for the Presidency different from the economic reform agenda being pursued by President Tinubu.
