APC blasts Obasanjo for criticising Tinubu's govt

In another report by Legit.ng, the ruling All-Progressives Congress (APC) criticised Obasanjo's disapproval of the President Tinubu-led administration’s policies.

The ex-president earlier faulted Tinubu’s decision to remove petroleum subsidy and float the naira.

In a statement released to journalists on Sunday, May 26, by Kehinde Akinyemi, his special assistant on media, Obasanjo said although Tinubu’s policies were necessary, they were poorly executed.
