‘Now you’ve snatched power, perform your Lagos miracles’ – Ex-Sports Minister mocks Tinubu

By John Owen Nwachukwu

Solomon Dalung, a former Minister of Sports in the Buhari administration, has mocked President Bola Tinubu following the excruciating economic hardship and hunger in Nigeria.

Dalung, writing on X, opined that Tinubu and his team have no business blaming the administration of Buhari.

While acknowledging Buhari’s failure to fulfil the “change” promise, the former minister maintained that the responsibility for Nigeria’s economic woes lies with Tinubu’s government due to its alleged reckless policies.

He wrote on X: “Blaming #MBuhari for economic woes cannot address the economic situation confronting the people? Can bulk trading be the only solution for #officialABAT & his economic team? The pregnant situation deserves urgent prescriptions. Hunger, the high cost of living, is at an unbearable level.

“The attempt to change the narratives of #officialABAT from “don’t pity me, I look for the job and got it” to blaming Buhari by #BwalaDaniel #aonanuga1956 & Co travellers is uncharitable hypocrisy. #officialABAT knew all these problems, yet “he snatched power and ran away with it.

“An empty stomach does not listen to the voice of the gospel; the echoes of concerns, especially those of traditional rulers, cannot be ignored. I lend my voice to it. #officialABAT, hunger is a recipe for disaster. Can you sit back at home and engage broadly if your wisdom cannot provide solutions?

“If #officialABAT deploys the same energy, knowledge, tactics and money during elections and tribunal to deal with Nigeria’s security and economic challenges, things will change. Why has the steam suddenly changed to blaming Daura? You have snatched power, oya, perform your Lagos miracles.”
