Buhari allegedly abandoned Tinubu a faltering economy-Mutfwang.

Caleb Mutfwang, the Governor of Plateau State, decried Nigerians’ economic difficulties on Monday, blaming it on the previous administration led by President Muhammadu Buhari.

Speaking at the inauguration of 22 special advisers and heads of other government agencies appointed by his administration on Monday at the Rayfield Government House in Jos, the governor stated that President Bola Tinubu inherited Nigeria’s worst-performing economy from Buhari since the country began its democratic experiment in 1999.

The governor stated, “We are at a very crucial point in the history of this country, and I believe that after the election, you should leave politics and focus on governance.”

“And, even if the Federal Government is led by a party other than my own, I owe it to Nigerians to tell them the truth: this government inherited a worse scenario than 1999.


“This government inherited an economy in which we just printed and distributed N30 trillion. This government inherited an economy in which crude oil that has yet to be extracted has already been sold.

“So when it comes to the decline of the naira, it’s hardly rocket science. We sold our future under the previous administration. It’s no surprise that riots are breaking out today, with people intercepting food on the way. We are fortunate on the plateau, as we may have more food than many other states.

“And I hope that there will never be another food riot on the Plateau, but it does mean that we must roll up our sleeves and go to work. And that is why, as a government, when we revealed one of our policies on food security, people laughed, but it is a serious matter.

The governor revealed his administration’s plans to establish a special agro-processing zone in Barkin Ladi LGA in conjunction with the African Development Bank for $300 million.

He urged the new appointments to rise to the challenge, allowing his administration to turn around the unpleasant situation for the betterment of the people.

The governor went on to say, “And I’m not familiar with some of the appointees, but we’re looking for the proper individuals to get things done. Some of them were only introduced to me about a week or two before the appointment.

“But we hired them because we believed they possessed the necessary qualifications for the role we were seeking for. And we are certain that their addition to the board will improve governance. So the most important thing for all advisers is to go and hunt for money.

“This is a significant issue. There is no money to share. You must put on your thinking cap and assist us in raising finances. Some of the funds will be utilised to invest and develop, allowing us to build wealth. Those of you in charge of the constituencies must step down whatever the government is doing to your constituencies so that we may all go forward as a nation.

“We have had enough distractions. You are aware of the bloodshed on the plateau. It’s time to say enough of it.”
