Don’t blame Tinubu for outcome of Buhari’s government – Oshiomhole


Former Edo governor Adams Oshiomhole says Bola Tinubu, the APC presidential flag bearer, has played no part in President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration and as such could not be blamed for any infraction by the government.

Mr Oshiomhole stated this on Wednesday during an interview on Arise TV. He said, “I think in appropriating or apportioning blame or crediting people, you will look at their role. It is a fact that Tinubu himself co-founded the APC. But he never participated in governance.

“He never held any position in government. He didn’t carry out any contract on behalf of government. So how can you credit him either way?”

Though Messrs Buhari and Tinubu are leaders of the ruling APC, Mr Oshiomhole, a former national chairman of the party insisted that “You cannot say someone who never in any way participated in government be credited with the outcome of government policy or be blamed for same.”
