Northern Elder describes 'Renewed Hope Agenda' as hopelessne

Member of the Northern Elders Forum, NEF, Prof Usman Yusuf has described the Renewed Hope Agenda of President Bola Tinubu as  hopelessness for the masses.

The former Executive Secretary of the National Health Insurance Scheme, NHIS, stated this in an interview with Channels Television’s Sunday Politics, decried the increasing poverty rate Nigeria.

According to Yusuf, rather than inject the Nigerian people with some hope capsules, the Tinubu administration has made Nigerians more hopeless in the last one year.

He said, “People have lost hope. It pains me to see our people lining up to collect cups of palliatives. Renewed Hope has turned into hopelessness.

“The last one year has been a year of nothing but deception, destitution and hopelessness.

“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.”

Yusuf described the economic management team of the President as “tax collectors” rather than “economists”.

“The economic team, to me, looks more like tax collectors than economists. Taxation does not grow economy; only production does,” he said.
