By Bashir Bello, KANO

A Northern group, Civil Society For Credible Election, has told Nigerians to blame former president Muhammadu Buhari for the present situation in the country and not President Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

The group who spoke through its leader, Hon. Aliyu Umar while addressing newsmen in Kano, said the Tinubu-led administration only inherited the challenges from his predecessor, Buhari.

Umar who said Tinubu had since hit the ground working to reverse the situation through phantom steps and policies put in place, however, called on Nigerians to exercise patience with the President as things will be better in no distant time in the country.

According to him, “We recognize the fact that Nigerians are passing through hardship at the moment. It is a result of a global economic meltdown, but only further compounded by some shortcomings of the last administration under former president Muhammadu Buhari.

“What people need to know about Nigeria’s present challenges is that President Bola Ahmed Tinubu inherited them from the past administration of former president Buhari but as a determined leader, Tinubu is pulling all strings together to overcome them head-on.

“Nigerians are all living witness to the phantom steps and policies of the present administration of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to address the country’s sociocultural, economic and political indices.

“What President Tinubu need from all Nigerians now is patience, cooperation and understanding of the administration reforms policies. These reforms are strategic and competent enough to in no distant time make all Nigerians proud of their beloved country,” Umar however stated.
