1-Year-in-Office: Why Tinubu Is Better as Opposition

  • PDP chieftain Rilwan Olanrewaju has scored President Bola Tinubu low as he commented about his one year in office
  • According to the PDP chieftain, the president has neither proved himself as a good policymaker nor someone who has a strong team that understands governance
  • Olanrewaju lamented that Tinubu was taxing Nigerians to death with many of his economic policies

President Bola Tinubu has been rated to have performed better as an opposition leader rather than leading the ruling party's government, the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Rilwan Olanrewaju, a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), made the comment in an exclusive interview with Legit.ng about the president's first year in office.

According to the PDP chieftain, there is nothing to talk about President Tinubu's one year in office because his administration caused more Nigerians to become poor in just 365 days of taking over the country's leadership.

His statement reads:

"Rating Tinubu on what exactly? My number one problem with him is that, according to those around him, he's been dreaming of becoming the president of Nigeria. They said he’s been working hard, building bridges, negotiating, lobbying, and making political strategies, but only to grab power and focus solely on taxing Nigerians to death.
"He’s making us live as a country in war, which is baffling and extremely pathetic of a man of his calibre. I conclude that Tinubu will be better in opposition than in government because he doesn’t have any policymakers or people in his camp who understand governance.
