Speaking about Bola Tinubu’s policies, the SDP flagbearer said:

“These policies are not good, not because of the party that is announcing them but because they are not suitable to us.”

As reported by Daily Trust, Adebayo added that the gains of the policies were lesser than the pains.

He noted specifically that Tinubu's government should be “less arrogant” to do the right thing to provide succour for Nigerians.

“The people of Nigeria voted for these policies, they are not nice policies but until the next election, you are stuck with these policies,” Adebayo said.

Speaking at the Igboho town monarch's palace in Oyo state, Adeyemo claimed that Buhari left behind a 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.
