Former president Buhari  to blame over prevailing economic h

Pro-democracy groups from the 19 Northern States under the aegis of the Arewa Initiative for Defence and Promotion of Democracy, (AIDPD) has blamed former President Muhammadu Buhari for the ongoing economic hardship nationwide.

The group’s position is in reaction to the disclosure by the Chairman of Northern Governors’ Forum and Governor of Kwara State, AbdulRahman AbdulRasaq that “crude oil Nigeria will be getting in next six months has already been sold” in advance by the immediate past government.”

Speaking at a press conference in Abuja on Thursday, the Chairman of the Amalgamation, Shehu Abdullahi Ma’aji, said Tinubu inherited the worst economy so far.

"For instance, the Kwara State Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazagq and Chairman of the Nigeria Governors’ Forum (NGF) had just revealed that the crude oil the country will be getting in the next six months had been sold in advance by the immediate past administration."

He accused some unpatriotic politicians of hijacking the economic hardship to instigate civil unrest against the government, adding that protests in some northern States were the handiwork of those elements.

He called for the cooperation of Nigerians for the government to address issues.
