Two Of Tinubu’s Key Policies Necessary But Wrongly Implemented – Obasanjo by BeeBeeOoh(m): 7:54pm On May 26
Former President, Olusegun Obasanjo has said two out of three of the President Bola Tinubu-led administration’s policies were necessary but wrongly implemented.

Obasanjo made this remark at a Colloquium themed ‘Nigeria’s Development: Navigating the Way Out of the Current Economic Crisis and Insecurity’, at the Paul Aje Colloquium (PAC) in Abuja, during the weekend.

He hinted that the third decision was the position in dealing with the coup in Niger.

“Today, government has taken three decisions, two of which are necessary but wrongly implemented and have led to impoverisation of the economy and of Nigerians. These are removal of subsidy, closing the gap between black market and official rates of exchange and the third is dealing with military coup in Niger Republic.

“The way forward is production and productivity which belief and trust in government leadership will engender. No short cut to economic progress but hard work and sweat.

“Economy does not obey orders, not even military orders. I know that. If we get it right, in two years, we will begin to see the light beyond the tunnel. It requires a change of characteristics, attributes and attitude by the leadership at all levels to gain the confidence and trust of investors who have alternatives.

“Total Energy has gone to invest 6 billion dollars in Angola instead of Nigeria. If the truth must be stated, the present Administration has not found the right way to handle the economy to engender confidence and trust for investors to start trooping in.

“They know us more than we know ourselves. And now they are laughing at us, not taking us seriously. We have to present ourselves in such a way that we will be taken seriously. If the existing investors are disinvesting and going out of our country, how do we persuade new investors to rush in. We can be serious if we choose to be but we need to change from transactional leadership in government to transformational and genuine servant leadership,” he said.

The former President asserted that to get out of the current situation in the country, the government and the governed needed to look at the past and the present, and ask ‘How did we get here?’

“Looking at the topic of today’s occasion, the question I would ask is, ‘How do we navigate our way out of these crises and pave the path towards a more secure and prosperous Nigeria? I believe the answer to this requires a multi-faceted approach that addresses the root causes of these challenges. The central questions are: Where were we? And how did we get to where we are today.

“Firstly, we must know where we are coming from. Our economy has consistently suffered from poor policies, lack of long-term sustainable policies, discontinuity, adhocry and corruption firmed on personal greed, avarice, incompetence, lack of knowledge and understanding and lack of patriotism.

“For instance, the statement and proposed actions given forty-five years ago to stop fuel scarcity is the same statement and action being touted today. I recall when I made the statement that the refineries will not work, the sycophants and spin doctors of this current administration went out to castigate me as not being a petroleum engineer and that I did not know what I was talking about.

“They forgot that the attempt that was made in 2007 to partly privatise the refineries was made by me after a thorough study of the situation. But the decision was reversed by my successor and the 750 million dollars paid was refunded.”

Suggesting a way out, the former President Nigerian needs “a 25-year socio-economic development agenda” that will be generally agreed to, and passed into law.

Just like buhari Tinubu has the best information's on turning around things positively for the country but because the ideas are coming from the opposition he would rather take dumb steps to set the country backwards.

Let me take time out to respect the great Baba Iyabo for always speaking truth to power
The two policies were needed but as for the timing,it is subject to debate
I believe that the Nigerian currency is right now closer to its real value as against when it was being heavily subsidized while the petrol subsidy will probably be gone forever in the next few weeks
As for the Refineries,anyone I have always believed they are huge mass of metal scrap that should be sold off
The people in NNPCL know those Scrap metals can never work and if they have any honour they should resign while those that are ready to work can be sent on sabbatical to Dangote Refinery to know how a Refinery should operate
Indeed the people in NNPCL have clearly shown that you can't shame the shameless
Tufiakwa!!!!

His zombies say He is doing awesomely well.
You become an enemy when You call out a failure who has done nothing but become an obstacle,a curse to the survival of legit hustling small scale businesses in Nija, while they are the angels for supporting a structure of suffering, Insecurity, hardship and criminality.

Some of this guys are poor yet they stand with same evil APC structure that is structured to put them and their generation into more untold poverty and hardship 😁😁

If this is not ZOMBIESM,what then is it?

Baba Obasanjo.himself. A Man the jokers that came after him cannot lace his shoes. A Man that isn't a tribal jingoist like the current one that parked his Lagos boys there.

A confirm Yoruba Man and a Nigerian

Telecommunications. A1

Banking sector. A1

Corruption. (Creation of EFCC and the Likes) A1.

Respect in the commity of Nations after the backlash we got from the Abacha administration.

Economy grew under him.

Even infrastructure sef, Nigeria's most busy highway,The Lagos Ibadan expressway that is currently being reconstructed was constructed by him in 76..

These current swines were abusing him when he said the refineries would not work because he knew exactly what he was saying..

Bros you are on point, one of the greatest mistake we made was not allowing him to go for third term. Look at what he did, He Saved roughly $60 Billion, our debt was just about $500 Million.

He realized that NNPC and the refinery was a major reason why we spend a lot and inflation is high, he sold two of the refinery weeks to leaving office which Yaradua reversed.

If he had entered for third term he would have dealt with the northern oligarchy, mesmerized Boko Haram.

The man is smart

Great submission by Baba OBJ

The problem is we like to open debates, blow gramma but never like to close/conclude them.

even an unborn child knows that that was a mistake.. Nigerian leaders know that they are covered by ethno-centricity (even if you are Hiltler, you have the unalloyed backing of your group). So they do these things and get away with it. The immediate former president typifies that.

You don't say subsidy is gone on your first day in office.. and on the same day make your parallel rate to become official rate. Then as the BDCs were shifting way from you, you were following them. And even decided to overtake them at a point. What manner of economics was that..🤔🤔🤔

The people have suffered the consequences of these voodoo economics ever since and still suffering while the government people smile to the bank..

I have never witnessed such level of insénsitivity. Have never seen a 'labour pain' lasting for one year and still counting..

All you need as a good leader is empathy. Be sensitive, let commonsense prevail. The common people have suffered enough naa..

Phased Implementation: Policies like subsidy removal should be implemented gradually, with safety nets for vulnerable populations.
Inclusive Policy Formulation: Engage experts, stakeholders, and the public in policy development to ensure comprehensive and practical solutions.

Transparent Governance: Foster transparency and accountability to build trust and attract investment. Addressing corruption and inefficiencies will be crucial.

Economic Diversification: Focus on diversifying the economy beyond oil, investing in sectors like agriculture, technology, and manufacturing to create jobs and drive sustainable growth.

Improving Security: Develop a coherent and strategic approach to security issues, including those involving neighboring countries, to ensure stability and protect economic interests.

Tinubu's administration has initiated some necessary reforms, their execution has been flawed. Adopting a more thoughtful, inclusive, and phased approach to policy implementation will be essential in navigating Nigeria out of its current crises and towards a more secure and prosperous future.
