BREAKING: Nigeria paying for Buhari’s mistakes – Shehu Sani

Senator Sani Shehu, has blamed former President Muhammadu Buhari for the current economic hardship in the country
Sani said that some of the economic policies that President Bola Tinubu is implementing now which triggered the economic hardship should have been implemented by Buhari whom he said failed to do so and allowed the economy deteriorate.

“We must be very factual and realistic with ourselves; the problem we find ourselves today, originated, was engineered, fabricated and sustained by the Buhari administration.

“The Buhari administration, institutionally, fundamentally destroyed the Nigerian economy,” said Sani, who was a guest on Channels Television’s Politics Today on Wednesday.

Absorbing Tinubu of the blame of the current situation, the ex-lawmaker said;

“When Tinubu took over, he knows there is not going to be subsidy and to be realistic, he was very frank during his campaign. He said, ‘I am going to remove subsidy and whatever protest that will come out of it I will not back down’ and then people went ahead and voted for him, so he has not deceived Nigerians.

“Now he is in power, we are paying the price for the mistake of the past, for the failure of the past and for what we have refused to do in the past, so this is the reality.”
