A former Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, says ex-president Muhammadu Buhari took Nigeria 50 years backward during his eight-year reign as president.

While speaking on Channels Television’s Sunday Politics, Fayose said Buhari’s bad decisions were responsible for the current hardship in the land.

He cautioned President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to stop describing his predecessor as a blessing to the country, stressing that “he (Buhari) threw us back to 50 years of our history.”

Nigeria is battling rising inflation forex crisis, economic hardship and high cost of living occasioned by the removal of petrol subsidy, attracting protests in parts of the country.

Fayose described the Buhari government as one of “total regret and today, the consequences of yesterday is manifesting and it’s so disturbing and sad”.

“Look at the eight years of President Buhari, what would be left of a country like Nigeria as of today even if Tinubu means well? Where do we place the debts?” he queried.

However, Fayose insisted that Tinubu’s performance had been impressive.

According to him, there is no miracle the current President, who was sworn in last May, could do in nine months.

“A lady who was a former minister of finance said very expressly that we service Nigeria’s debt with 83 per cent of our income.

“Considering what Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the President of Nigeria inherited and our diversity, put all these together, the gentleman is trying,” he stated.
