Human rights activist, Aisha Yesufu, has tackled President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, over the continuous blame on the immediate-past administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.
Naija News recalls that Minister of Finance and Coordinating Minister of the Economy, Wale Edun, while addressing State House Correspondents after the maiden Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting on Monday, said President Tinubu inherited a bad economy with an unacceptably high unemployment rate.
He claimed that Tinubu’s administration met an awful economy with 24 per cent inflation and a high rate of youth unemployment.
Edun said irrespective of the situation, the President has promised to make the economy better and create about 50 million jobs through the Ministry of Trade and Investment.
He also said that the Federal Government is not in a position to borrow money at this time, adding the emphasis is on how to create a macroeconomic environment where both local and foreign investors will invest and increase production.
Edun’s assertion comes a few weeks after former governor of Edo State, Adams Oshiomhole, claimed that President Tinubu’s government inherited a terrible economic situation.
Reacting to the constant blame, Aisha Yesufu, in a post on Twitter, said considering how President Tinubu blames the economic situation on the past government, one would think he was not a part of the administration.
She further recalled how the All Progressives Congress (APC) supporters would tackle those who attempted to say the past administration was a total failure.
She tweeted: “The way Tinubu’s illegitimate government is blaming everything on the immediate past government, you would think it wasn’t part of the immediate past government.
“We were called all sorts of names for daring to say the immediate past government was a total failure when it was in office”
