A former lawmaker representing Kaduna Central in the Senate, Senator Sani Shehu, has claimed that former President Muhammadu Buhari destroyed Nigeria’s economy, saying the former president is responsible for the current economic hardship in the country.

Sani stated this in an interview on Channels Television’s Politics Today on Wednesday.

He said some of the economic policies that President Bola Tinubu is implementing now, which triggered the economic hardship, should have been implemented by Buhari.

The Kaduna senator said former President Buhari failed to implement the policies, which consequently allowed the economy to deteriorate.

Sani said, “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,”
he addded.

Sani absorbed Tinubu’s blame for the current situation, noting that, having said he (Tinubu) would implement the policies he has implemented so far during the campaign, Tinubu did not deceive Nigerians.

He 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. 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,”
he said.

Recall that some Nigerians in some states have taken to the streets to protest the situation over the economic hardship occasioned by some of Tinubu’s policies, especially the removal of petrol subsidy and the unification of forex rate.

The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) also joined the protest over hardship on Tuesday with a nationwide action.

But, Sani said the NLC has the right to protest, adding that the protest to be wary of is not that of the NLC but the one that may be carried out by unorganised civil society.

Still looking for who to blame after 9 months in office rather than fixing the mess.

So what do we do now? Can't our DSS smoke him out from wherever he is hiding?
