Senator representing Edo North Senatorial District, Adams Oshiomhole, says the negative impacts of the policies of the former President, Muhammadu Buhari, are the cause of the biting hardship Nigerians are grappling with today.

Speaking on Monday during an interview on Channels Television, Oshiomhole said all blames for the suffering and misery of Nigerians should go to Buhari and not his successor.

The former governor of Edo State said President Tinubu should not be held responsible for the right or wrong decisions taken by the previous administration.

Oshiomhole said President Tinubu always places national interests above partisan interests, adding that he publicly opposed what he deemed anti-people policies under Buhari government.

“My first loyalty is to Nigeria. At some point, before the last president left office, I lamented loudly what I saw as reckless policies that were designed to dehumanize the population that was already in pain.

“I felt that it is not what the then president promised. I dissociated myself from those policies and I’m happy that I was not the only one.

“There were governors who approached the court to denounce some of those policies. It is the long term consequences of those policies that we are still grappling with now.

“Yes, it is our party platform. Like Tinubu also said, he was not a minister or adviser. He never took a contract in that government and he cannot be held responsible for what the government did right or wrong,” he said
