You’ve Snatched Power, Now Perform Your Lagos Miracles — Dalung Fires At Tinubu

Former Minister Solomon Dalung has criticised the Tinubu-led government for consistently attributing Nigeria’s economic challenges to ex-President, Muhammad Buhari.

In a series of posts on his X account on Monday, Dalung argued that if Tinubu’s administration devoted the same resources and effort used during elections and tribunals to tackle security and economic issues, significant improvements could be achieved.

He emphasised that simply blaming Buhari for economic woes wouldn’t alleviate the hardships faced by the people.

Dalung expressed disdain for attempts to shift blame to Buhari and others within his government, stating that it was hypocritical. He questioned whether bulk trading was the only solution proposed by the economic team, highlighting the urgency of addressing hunger and the high cost of living.

Dalung also criticised the reckless economic policies implemented by Tinubu’s government, such as subsidy withdrawal without adequate measures, currency devaluation without stimulating production, and high governance costs. He argued that blaming Buhari for these issues was unjustified.

Acknowledging Buhari’s failure to fulfill the “change” promise, Dalung maintained that the responsibility for Nigeria’s economic woes lies with Tinubu’s government due to its reckless policies. He called for accountability and urged Tinubu’s administration to take responsibility for its actions rather than deflecting blame onto others like Buhari.

He said, “The attempt to change narratives of #officialABAT from “don’t pity me, I look for the job and got it” to blaming Buhari by #BwalaDaniel #aonanuga1956 & Co travellers is uncharitable hypocrisy, #officialABAT knew all these problems, yet “he snatched power and run away with it

“Blaming #MBuhari for economic woes cannot address the economic situation confronting the people? Can bulk trading be the only solution for #officialABAT & his economic team? The pregnant situation deserves urgent prescriptions. Hunger & high cost of living is at unbearable level..

“An empty stomach does not listen to the voice of the gospel, the echoes of concerns especially traditional rulers cannot be ignored. I lean my voice to it, #officialABAT hunger is a recipe for disaster, can you sit back at home and engage broadly if your wisdom cannot provide solutions?

“If #officialABAT deploys the same energy, knowledge, tactics & money during elections & tribunal to deal with Nigeria’s security & economic challenges, things will change. Why has the steam suddenly changed to blaming Daura? You have snatched power, oya perform your Lagos miracles.

“All mercenaries hired for a paradigm shift for blame game failed to explain the reckless economic policies of subsidy withdrawal without shock absorber mechanisms, floating the Naira without stimulating production, corruption & high governance cost. Is #MBuhari also responsible?

“All those appealing for sacrifice are dishonest, what else are the people expected to sacrifice — their lives? All imperatives of survival have been snatched by #officialABAT IMF-induced economic policies. Yet the body language of the #officialABAT government is that of Owambe. Shame.

“Nigerians cannot sacrifice under rudderless leadership. Has the #officialABAT government accounted for proceeds of subsidy withdrawal since May 29th 2023? what moral high grounds are they blaming #MBuhari who left fx at #700 pd, rice #35,00 PB, cement #3000 PB, all these have tripled.

“There’s no regret whatsoever we thought of changing the social order”. The failure of #MBuhari to deliver “change” is inexcusable however, it is not responsible for the self-inflicted economic woes caused by #officialABAT reckless economic policies without a human face.

“We take full responsibility for the failures of the #MBuhari government to deliver on the change mandate. #MBuhari should be excused from the economic woes induced by a deficiency of ideas. This bulk pushing is mercenary tactics of distracting attention from taking responsibilities
