On the inauguration day, May 29, Tinubu noted that his administration would no longer subsidise fuel, hence calling for the end of the financing because it benefited neighbouring countries.

Tinubu's administration's policies have so far led to the increment in the price of the Premium Motor Spirit (PMS) and the continuous free fall of the naira against the dollar, making it sell for between N1,400 and N1,900.

Speaking on Sunday, March 10, when he received the comptroller-general and members of the management team of the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) in Daura, Katsina state, Buhari said governing Nigeria was a tough job for anyone.

As reported by Vanguard, he asked Nigerians to endure the country's economic hardship and support the current administration's policies and programs.

In a similar development, Legit.ng reported that Yoruba national advocate Sunday Adeyemo, commonly known as Sunday Igboho, absolved President Tinubu of blame, instead implicating his predecessor, Buhari, for the country's economic woes.

At the Igboho town monarch's palace in Oyo state, Adeyemo claimed that Buhari left Nigeria in turmoil for Tinubu.

Additionally, he accused Buhari of orchestrating a violent raid on his home and attempting to assassinate him as retaliation for his activism against Fulani herders' violence in the Southwest.
