Hardships: Atiku Asks Tinubu To Stop Groping In The Dark

Alhaji Atiku Abubakar

Former Nigerian Vice President, Atiku Abubakar has asked the government of President Bola Tinubu to show a clear direction of its economic policy projections “and desist from the subsisting behaviour of groping in the dark.”
In a message today, December 31, to wish Nigerians happy New Year, Atiku advised the government to seize the ample time in 2024 to champion a pathway to address the acute hardship that Nigerians are going through.
He regretted that because of the tough economic measures taken by the government, many companies have closed their operations in Nigeria and moved their enterprises elsewhere.
According to Atiku, “with clearer policies and visions, the situation of life for Nigerians keeps getting direr.
“To walk back from these throes of adversities will require a well-thought vision of National Planning that will deliberately make the common people of Nigeria the centrepiece of our development.”
Atiku noted that the rising cost of food items, goods and services; the malfunction in the national economy and the degenerating state of the national and community security are all existential challenges that the citizens have to face squarely in the New Year.
“Certainly, many families and businesses already know the intensity of the trying times that we are currently going through – though we could have taken a completely different pathway, had the government been smarter with their policy prescriptions.”
The former Vice President acknowledged that the year 2023 had been a challenging one, but that the lessons that should be taken away from it “are what should prepare us for the future that the New Year holds.”
“While I congratulate all Nigerians for witnessing this New Year, I also wish to call on everyone to double our efforts to put our respective families and businesses in good shape.”
