Nigerians do not acknowledge Buhari’s achievement, says Tinubu.
During the three-day ministerial retreat for ministers and permanent secretaries that began in Abuja on Tuesday themed “Enhance Security, Fight Corruption, Transform the Economy”, Bola Tinubu, the presidential candidate of the All Progressive Congress, praised President Muhammadu Buhari and said that most Nigerians do not appreciate the majority of President Buhari’s accomplishments. Tinubu, who was advocating on behalf of the president, stated that Nigerians ought to comprehend the fact that Buhari inherited insecurity and corruption from the government that came before him.
While making a statement for the president in a press release in Abuja on Tuesday through his media officer, Tunde Rahman, the APC flag bearer, who is also a former governor of Lagos State, noted that Nigeria’s challenge was worsened by the overwhelming severity, complexity, and hardship caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. This pandemic had a devastating effect on both the health sector and the world economy. Therefore, he praised Buhari and his cabinet for not disappointing Nigerians who believed in them and gave them the mandate.
Buhari’s labour and achievements may go unrecognized.
Furthermore, he added to his statement that Buhari’s labour and achievements might go unrecognized for a moment. Nevertheless, that cruel period will not last forever. In due time, the breadth and depth of his contributions will, both individually and collectively, come into full view and comprehension. He added that the administration took office during a national situation that was unprecedented in its complexity and hardship. Previous administrations either chose not to address significant issues like corruption and insecurity or lacked the political will to do so.
In lieu of all those, he said that Buhari was faced with a series of occurrences that were unusual in the combined intensity, complexity, and uniqueness they posed as challenges. COVID is a threat to both the world’s health and the world’s economy. The price of oil fluctuated significantly over most of his term in office, and as a direct result, so did the revenue. The conflict in Ukraine, along with other conflicts and extreme weather in many countries, has further hampered economic activity and harmed worldwide supply networks of essential products, particularly food. He claimed that he did much more than endure and make it through these challenging storms, in spite of making significant progress in history.
The Buhari government is faced with many unprecedented challenges.
Speaking on the same, Tinubu said when Buhari first took office, he was confronted with many situations in which terrorists were pitching flags on national land and declaring an unconstitutional state within the country’s legitimate state. However, as a result of their collective efforts, they now no longer place flags, and we do not hear them boasting about their victories any longer. He added that Buhari set the nation on the path to success in overcoming this threat. And he prayed that with the help of God, they would not give up until all terrorists and their supporters were no more.
Part of his achievements include the Important policy interventions that were made as a result of the progress he made in increasing farm productivity while also improving conditions for the average farmer. These interventions assisted the nation in overcoming the disruptions in the global supply chain that posed a threat to our food security. The Petroleum Industry Act was also a groundbreaking piece of legislation that paved the way for new opportunities in the oil and gas industry. And if the electoral law that he helped establish is faithfully implemented, it would further regulate the democratic way of life by ensuring that elections are conducted in a manner that is free and fair.
Tinubu said he would build on the current administration’s legacies.
As the remaining time of Buhari’s presidency winds down, Tinubu stated that if he were to be elected president, he would be lucky to take over from an administration that has worked exceptionally well, promising to build on the legacies that will stay for a long time. He also expressed confidence that Nigerians would never forget the progress made by the Buhari administration to put the nation on the right course after years of poor leadership, even long after they had left office.

Buhari has done more bad than good to our economy, Tinubu is just praising him because the president is advocating for him
This man is talking nonsense because what is important to understand is that Buhari inherited insecurity and corruption from the administration that was in place before him.
The COVID-19 pandemic’s immense severity, intricacy, and hardship made Nigeria’s problem worse, hence the president shouldn’t be held accountable.
The full scope and complexity of buhari’s contributions, both individually and as a whole, will become apparent and understandable in due time.
It is undeniable that the extreme intensity, complexity, and misery caused by the COVID-19 epidemic contributed to Nigeria’s difficulty, making it more difficult to overcome.
I’m struggling to understand all the praises that this Tinubu is giving Buhari, this is to show they are the same thing
The government of Buhari failed not address fundamental problems such as corruption and insecurity, and it also lacked the political will to do so at the time.
We’ve not valued successful presidents it’s now an unsuccessful one like Buhari that we will value. LoL this man is a joker
As a result of all of their combined efforts, they no longer plant flags, and we never hear them gloat about the triumphs they’ve won anymore. This is because the folly that they did was the root of these problems.
Even after the Buhari government has left office, we will not forget the strides that they have taken to put the country back on the right path after years of disastrous leadership. They have ensured that this would not happen.
Although the buhari administration did actually accomplish some commendable achievement but at large there are still dome more pressing need the citizens were yearning for which was never addressed till date. This has left the people of the country devastated.
From my perspective based on current world challenges from pandemic and present crises between Russia and Ukraine and other determinance factors I would give the government on a score card 5/10 but more can still be done to alevaite the people’s suffering
It’s well known his administration met quite a number of challenges. But he never made any significant positive impact. He only made them extremely worse. Although there might have been a few good deeds, buh his gross failure is more evident. Such a horrible administration.
To say the fact the president also try is best to transform the country into a good one but he met many challenges like the war and pandemic that happen which affect the world but his perform don’t really show and improve that much that why we don’t see much changes he really try his best but is not enough . we all know it is not easy job to transform this corrupted country for many years in just this just few years
Why is Tinubu talking like this? He knows very well that Buhari couldn’t do anything but rather compounded Nigeria problems. Campaign strategy.
Baba Tinubu is speaking out of point. How can you say Buhari performed when you know that his is worst of all administrations. It is filled sectionalism and nepotism. Go and check top offices are occupied by the fulanis that shouldn’t be. It should be evenly distributed. So Tinubu face your own campaign.
Lol. I no blame this government and their supporters. Non of them tried, it’s a failed adminatration. APC goveenment has failed already
Any politician that said he/she want to build on Buhari legacy is error because there nothing to build on.
To me tinubu is using…buhari cant be blamed, we all know it is not easy job to transform this corrupted country in few times…..I pray for better govt.
What success has this government achieved?
I’m not surprised by their failed government because they are just not deserving to lead us. We the people need to be upright in the way we choose leaders. I hope Tinubu too doesn’t win the next election because that’s double disaster of what we are facing with Buhari.
