TInubu is not Different From Buhari, APC Not cut out for Governance -Uwazurike
Chief Goddy Uwazurike, the Former president of Igbo Think-tank Aka Ikenga and the President of The Credibility Group, has criticized the current government of Nigeria led by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu. He believes that the government has not been transparent or honest about its plans and performance, he also said that Tinubu is not in any way different from Buhari.
Chief Uwazurike stated that the state of the Nigerian economy has worsened under Tinubu’s administration.
Uwazurike also asserts that the previous government, led by President Muhammadu Buhari, was also to blame for the current economic crisis.
He made this known in an interview he granted (Not RPTVBLOG) and made available to RPTVBLOG.
He highlights the dire economic conditions facing ordinary Nigerians, the high cost of basic necessities like fuel, and the lack of empathy or concern shown by the government.
He also points out the negative effects of censorship and attack from the government’s supporters against anyone who criticizes them.
Taken together, these issues paint a bleak picture of the current state of affairs in Nigeria.
In comparing TInubu and Buhari’s Government, he said;
“The impression that I have of this government remains the same that I had for the one before it, I mean the Muhammadu Buhari-led gov- ernment that came before it.”
“We’ve been having governments controlled by the APC (All Progressives Congress) since 2015 and the hallmark of the APC government has always been the same sense of lack of preparedness to govern; lack of planning and their inability to knuckle down to know what is wrong with the country.
Again, they are good at pontificating on the good plans that they claim to have.
What I mean is propaganda. Yes! I concede the fact that this government is just in its fifth month but usually governments celebrate when it is 100 days in office, which is three months and a few days in office but this government cleverly evaded celebrating the milestone thus not allowing itself to be examined by the people.
As of today, what we have as the scorecard of the current government is our economy, which was already broken down by the government of former President Muhammadu Buhari, has now broken into pieces.
Continuing, he said;
“Members of the media support group of the president are busy attacking everyone who doesn’t say anything they like”.
“The same reason former President Buhari went away with his shoulders held high as if he had done us a favour by presiding over the country as the President What is happening today?
We are going down the hill. We are going down, everyone is against everyone, the economy is nose-diving, yet all that the sycophants are doing is to praise the government and the president who has not even addressed the numerous problems confronting the country. He stated.
Uwazurike expressed his frustration with the state of the economy, the cost of basic necessities like fuel, and the government’s perceived lack of concern for the well-being of the people.
He said that his concern is that the government’s priorities are not in line with the needs of the people.
When asked about what he is the way out of the economic quagmire, the learned silk has this to say;
H.E. Peter Obi said that it is when you export goods, commodities and services that you earn Dollars to offset debts but what happened, the media support group derided him for his position.
He was thoroughly abused by members of this group. First, he was called an Ibo man, they called him a petty trader but those things that he said are coming to light now.
The price of crude oil in the international market has gone up just as the prices of petrol and other derivatives of crude oil have also gone up.
It is so disheartening that the big companies have all left the country. The present government does not really know what to do to kick-start the economy.
Let me remind you that no man will invest in any country where there is so much uncertainty. Nigeria today is a place of uncertainty.
If you invest one million Dollars in anything called business, it may yield for you one hundred million or over one billion but when you want to repatriate your profits you will just discover that the amount that would accrue to you will just fetch you just $500,000 because the crashing economy would have eroded investments.
That’s an extremely important point, and it highlights the fact that economic instability and uncertainty can have a devastating effect on investment and growth.
Nigeria has indeed struggled with this issue in recent years, as the economy has experienced periods of inflation, depreciation of the Naira, and a lack of foreign investment.
