According to him, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu should not be blamed for the current crisis in the country; hence, he should not be sacked from office.

The APC chieftain said:

"The hardship is a result of insecurity in which local farmers couldn't farm as they used to. Secondly, corruption is one of the key factors; since the corrupt wealth was not put into investment but stockpiled into their houses, which can cause hardship on its own. Another major factor is that our country is a consumption nation, a non-producing nation that, on its own, can cause hardship for the citizens.
"The president shouldn't be sacked because he inherited a failed state and a worse economy with terrible security challenges. I'm sure he is trying to make the nation self-reliant despite our economy's continuous rise. Looking at the manner in which looting was done by the previous government, then you will agree with me that Tinubu inherited a collapsed nation with so many challenges."
