What Buhari Has Done To Tinubu’s 2023 Presidential Ambition- Olusegun Bamgbose
Bad policies and bad administration of the government led by President Muhammadu Buhari has dented any hope for a Bola Ahmed Tinubu Presidency come 2023. This was made know today by Mr. Olesegun Bamgbose, the National Coordinator, Concerned Advocates for Good Governance (CAGG) in a chat with media personnel where he advised Tinubu, the National Leader of the All Progressive Party (APC), to forget any hope of becoming the president in 2023. He noted also, that the increment in fuel and electricity tariff has damaged the National leader’s ambition.
According to Bamgbose, “it was unfortunate that the APC which promised a better life and good governance has successfully made reverse the case. Buhari administration is fast becoming oppressive and burdensome. One wonders the justification of these hikes when we are still grappling with poverty, hardship and unemployment. Most recently, National Bureau of Statistics came out to inform Nigerians that about 21 million Nigerians are unemployed. We still remain the poverty capital of the world. We should also remember here that we are yet to recover from the COVID-19 devastating effects on the economy. On top of all these and many more, this government went ahead to increase the pump price, to say the least, this is inhuman and a clear case of being insensitive to the plight of Nigerians. We urge the administration to reverse the hike within 14 days. There is no justification whatsoever for the hike at this critical period. The untimely hike is odious and obnoxious, reversal is the only thing that will make Nigerians happy. However if they fail to reverse the hike in pump price, they should forget about 2023. If they believe, they will use the power of incumbency to win elections come 2023, they will meet their waterloo. Bola Tinubu has refused to make any categorical statement, meaning he will toe the same line of oppressing the masses if he wins. I’ll urge him to forget about becoming the President of Nigeria come 2023. I foresee a real change come 2023, our mumu don do. Enough is enough.”
