Solomon Dalung, Minister of Youths and Sports Development in the first term of President Muhammadu Buhari, has told President Bola Tinubu to perform what he described as his “Lagos miracles”.

Tinubu was the governor of Lagos State from 1999 to 2007.

During his campaign for the highest office in the land, Tinubu emphasised that he built Lagos to a model for good governance, infrastructure renewal and innovation and asked that he should be given the chance to replicate such in Nigeria.

However, policies introduced by the president have not addressed the needs of Nigerians,  but plunged the country into further hardship in some instances.

CBN Governor Must Be More Political – Tinubu’s Aide

This, some of Tinubu’s allies have blamed on the past. Recently, Senator Gbenga Daniel, a chieftain of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), said Tinubu inherited a dead economy.

But in a series of posts via X, the former minister described attempts by the President Tinubu-led administration to consistently blame Buhari for Nigeria’s economic challenges, as hypocritical.

Dalung said if Tinubu’s administration devoted the same resources and effort used during elections and tribunals to tackle security and economic issues, significant improvements would have been achieved.

According to him, blaming Buhari for economic woes wouldn’t alleviate the hardships faced by the people.

While acknowledging Buhari’s failure to fulfill the “change” promise, Dalung maintained that the responsibility for Nigeria’s economic woes lies with Tinubu’s government due to its reckless policies.

He wrote: “Blaming #MBuhari for economic woes cannot address the economic situation confronting the people? Can bulk trading be the only solution for #officialABAT & his economic team? The pregnant situation deserves urgent prescriptions. Hunger & high cost of living is at unbearable level.

“The attempt to change narratives of #officialABAT from “don’t pity me, I look for the job and got it” to blaming Buhari by #BwalaDaniel #aonanuga1956 & Co travellers is uncharitable hypocrisy, #officialABAT knew all these problems, yet “he snatched power and run away with it.

“An empty stomach does not listen to the voice of the gospel, the echoes of concerns especially traditional rulers cannot be ignored. I lean my voice to it, #officialABAT hunger is a recipe for disaster, can you sit back at home and engage broadly if your wisdom cannot provide solutions?

“If #officialABAT deploys the same energy, knowledge, tactics & money during elections & tribunal to deal with Nigeria’s security & economic challenges, things will change. Why has the steam suddenly changed to blaming Daura? You have snatched power, oya perform your Lagos miracles.”
