Tinubu And The Sign Of Things To Come by Cantonese: 10:41am On May 31, 2023
Like Buhari, like Tinubu, one may just say.

When Nigerians were hoodwinked into believing the unbelievable that Buhari would transform the nation positively in 2015, shortsighted Nigerians believed that their messiah had arrived. They were made to believe that all the problems of the nation were created by PDP and again that the 16 years of PDP were wasted. Many believed and lived with all the terrible policies for eight years. Nigerians are worse off today and it includes even the high and mighty. No one is spared.

Someone rightly said that all those who scaled through the disastrous eight years of APC must pick up certificates of survival.

As soon as Buhari came to power in 2015, his actions and inactions put the entire country on a very disastrous path. While some believed that things would get better, the so called pessimists, who have been proven right, disagreed.

The foreign exchange transfer rules introduced by the Central Bank of Nigeria under Buhari’s watch were too complicated and unworkable. Nigerians abroad woke up one day only to discover that their debit cards were not working any more.

In his bid to pursue money laundered, the president dealt a devastating blow to innocent people including children whose parents could not raise the needed foreign exchange to pay their school fees. Small scale businesses were hit and the country was plunged into an economic mess from which it is still struggling to recover. Exchange rates swiftly changed during one very long weekend. By the next Monday I could not get forex to purchase goods.

The public was told that the stringent measures were introduced to improve the value of the naira and stop money launderers from sabotaging the economy. Nigerians still suffer from that first wrong policy move. Okonjo Iweala warned about the President’s “body language”, as it was called.

On the same day that Tinubu took the oath of office, his pronouncement, whatever it was intended, has led Nigerians again into more economic hardship. In just one day, the price of petrol has risen by over 300 percent, with more suffering and misery added to the lives of already suffering and miserable Nigerians.

Buhari showed us the manner of his government immediately he took over. Is Tinubu’s unthought statement not a sign of things to come, if he remains as the President?
