    2023: Unlike Osinbajo, Tinubu Can’t Be Blamed For Performances Of Buhari Govt – Oshiomhole

    Former National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole has submitted that it will be unfair to blame Asiwaju Bola Tinubu for the failures of President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration.

    He argued that in the same way, it will not be correct to praise Tinubu for any achievement recorded by the Buhari administration.

    Naija News reports Oshiomhole made the submission on Wednesday during his interview appearance on Arise TV.

    In his view, Tinubu was never a part of governance in the Buhari government, he didn’t play any part in policy implementation nor did he handle any contract or project, hence to blame him or praise him for the performance of the current administration would be an unfair judgment.

    The former Edo State Governor added that, unlike Tinubu, a key figure in the Buhari administration like Vice President Yemi Osinbajo can be asked to account for policies and government actions handled by him in office.

    In his words: “I think in appropriating, apportioning blame or credit (to) people, you look at their role. It is a fact that Asiwaju by himself said yes he co-founded APC. I was a co-founding Governor of APC along with Fashola and other Governors. But he never participated in governance, never held any position in government, he didn’t carry out any contract on behalf of government so how can you credit him either way? You can’t credit him either way. I mean this is just been fair.”

    Tinubu Different From Osinbajo

    “He is not like the Vice President who announced that he has been given the responsibility by the President to chair the economic team. Not just the national economic team that is in the constitution, but a special team put together by the government and he chairs it. So you can ask him to account for some economic policies.”

    “You can’t say someone who never in any way participated in government be credited with the outcome of government policies or be blamed either way.”
