The Yoruba socio-political group, Afenifere, has blamed former President Muhammadu Buhari and the ex-Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, Godwin Emefiele, for the economic hardship Nigerians are experiencing.

Afenifere said the bad economic policies of Buhari’s administration drove Nigeria into its current hardship.

The body made the remark in a statement on Friday, signed by its Publicity and Organising Secretaries, Jare Ajayi and Kole Omololu.

Afenifere lamented that Buhari’s administration failed to make provisions for subsidies in the last budget, leading to President Bola Tinubu hastily removing the subsidy on fuel.

Afenifere also accused Buhari of turning away from kidnapping, banditry, and terrorism during his administration.

The group recalled how a probe panel accused the former CBN governor of printing N22.7 trillion through ways and means, while the federal government was borrowing to pay salaries and pensions during the past administration.

Afenifere said during Buhari’s government, some ministers had suggested the removal of subsidies, but he refused.

The statement read partly: “President Buhari could not rein in his critical officials like the then Governor of CBN, Mr Godwin Emefiele, who was printing money rather than facing the reality of taking the difficult decisions, which were postponed till the evil day.

“He even wanted to contest the presidential election! There were no penalties for his infractions by President Buhari. These inactions and false lives continued till May 29, 2023, when the new helmsman, Asiwaju Ahmed Tinubu, was sworn in as president.

“President Tinubu wasted no time amending his inauguration address and declaring the subsidy regime over. This was obvious as there was no appropriation for subsidy from June 2023.”

Hahaha nothing tribalism no go do. Because ya tribesman is at the helm killing the country with ineffective policies you decided to put the blame on past administration, forgetting this ya tribeman was a major part of the past administration. Assuming atiku or obi or kwankwaso was current president, would u not have blamed them directly.

Was Emiefele the past president of Nigeria? Why can't these Yoruba people confront Buhari and leave Emiefele alone?

DON'T MIND THEM. Buhari Buhari as if they were not participants  in Buhari's government.  The moment they are voted into power you see them populating strategic agencies with their incompetent kith and kin. Talking of NEPOTISM this government is worse than Buhari's.
