PDP loyalist faults Tinubu for blaming Buhari

In an earlier tweet, Abubakar accused the APC of always playing the blaming game, adding that the Buhari administration blamed the PDP government for his eight years without anything to show and that Tinubu's administration had begun the same game.

Abubakar was reacting to the comment by Wale Edun, Tinubu's minister of finance and coordinating economy, who recently claimed that the current inflation in Nigeria was caused by indiscriminate printing of the naira notes throughout the eight years of Buhari's administration.

Ahmed knocks Tinubu for blaming Buhari

Weighing into the matter, Ahmad urged Tinubu's administration to build on the good achievements of his predecessor rather than engaging in blame games.

He also called on Tinubu to devise a strategy to mitigate Buhari's perceived shortcomings and maintain unity within the ruling party, thereby eliminating any potential defense for the PDP.

His tweet partly reads:

"I often wonder why, as a government, we concentrate more on amplifying the faults of the previous administration rather than acknowledging its numerous achievements. The PDP seems to have a more skilful approach to politics than we do in the APC.
"As Abdul’aziz has pointed out, it's rare to find instances where President Yar’adua’s (PDP) government criticized President Obasanjo’s (PDP) or where President Jonathan’s (PDP) government faulted President Yar’adua’s (PDP)."

Legit.ng earlier reported that Tinubu, on his way to power, promised to step in his predecessor Buhari's shoes and not on his toes.

However, it appears the president is on a different path from the Katsina-born general turned politician, particularly in some court cases.

The federal government lost no less than two court cases that the Buhari administration had started.
