Tinubu’s Economic Team Looks Like Tax Collectors – Prof. Usman

An academic egghead and member of the Northern Elders Forum, Professor Usman Yusuf has described the economic team put together by President Bola Tinubu as tax collectors.
“The economic team, to me, looks more like tax collectors than economists.
“Taxation does not grow the economy, only production does.”
Answering questions on a Channels TV programme: “Sunday Politics,” Professor Usman said that instead of bringing hope to Nigerians, Tinubu’s administration has made Nigerians more hopeless in the last one year.
Professor Usman, who is a former Executive Secretary of the National Health Insurance Scheme, insisted: “People have lost hope.
“It pains me to see our people lining up to collect cups of palliatives.
“Renewed Hope has turned into hopelessness. People have lost hope.
“From next week, they will start telling us their propaganda.
“What have they done to benefit the ordinary people?
“In a span of one year, they have brought millions of people back into multidimensional poverty. They have pushed millions more children out of school because their parents cannot pay their school fees.”
