"Stop blame game," Atiku tells Tinubu

In another report, Atiku Abubakar, the former Vice President, on Monday, urged President Tinubu to emulate the reform approach of President Javier Milei of Argentina instead of faulting opposition parties and his predecessor.

Atiku, who ran for the presidency in 2023 under the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), highlighted that both Tinubu and Milei inherited troubled economies in 2023 but employed different strategies for recovery.

In a statement titled ‘Argentina’s Javier Milei approach to reforms should serve as a lesson for Tinubu,’ Abubakar emphasised that Nigeria’s leader could learn from Milei’s efforts, inspiring investor confidence.
