According to the APC chieftain, Atiku and Obi did not tell Nigerians how they plan to go about the fuel subsidy and floating of the naira or what they would do to curtail the aftermath of the two policies.

He said:

"Looking at what was inherited from the PMB administration, there are a lot of messes to cleanse, especially in CBN, so I don't know what Obi or Atiku would have done differently because they are all campaigned with floating of naira and subsidy removal."

Tinubu warned against sabotage

Legit.ng earlier reported that President Tinubu has been urged to be wary of sabotage of the government and make them face the wrath of justice.

Barrister Oladotun Hassan, who spoke with Legit.ng, gave the warning while reacting to the recent defence of bandits by Sheikh Ahmed Gumi.

Gumi had recently warned that the recent bandits' activities were child's play, calling for amnesty for the notorious groups.
