Buhari vs Wale Edun: Tinubu dissociates self

Recall that many members of Tinubu's administration had blamed former President Muhammadu Buhari's administration in eight years for Nigeria's current socio-economic and security challenges. Top among them is Wale Edun, the minister of finance and coordinating economy.

But Tinubu, who succeeded Buhari last May, said it was not his character to blame the past governments in the country but to commence with the right reform and put the country on the path to prosperity, Channels Television reported.

Tinubu's comment reads in part:

“When you read the papers, some of us are confused whether to abuse the present or the past (governments) or make excuses for the future.”
