Problem With Economy: Presidency Describes Atiku As Hypocrite

The Presidency has described former Nigeria’s Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, as hypocrite for raising alarm over the challenges facing the country’s economy.
Special Adviser to President Bola Tinubu on information and strategy, Bayo Onanuga, in a statement reacting to Atiku, said that there is no iota of truth in the Atiku’s accusation.
“Atiku’s claim that the government’s policies have created intense cost of living pressures are also not grounded on facts as recent comparative cost of living indices show that Nigerians still enjoy the lowest cost of living in Africa.
“His claims that the private sector is shrinking and that multinational companies are leaving our companies in ‘droves’ are not grounded on facts.
“Atiku should be honest enough to admit that President Tinubu inherited a weak economy.
“Nigerians can easily see through the hypocrisy of Alhaji Atiku, who in accusing President Tinubu of poor response to the nation’s challenges and causing pains and despair, didn’t offer any better policy options in his run for the Presidency different from the economic reform agenda being pursued by President Tinubu.”
