In life, people want some form of inheritance from their fathers and it is same in the places of leadership, when you talk about government.
In Nigeria, different administrations come and go and each often talk about this inheritance.
The administration of President Bola Tinubu is not any different.
On Sunday, the governor of Ogun State, Dapo Abiodun, claimed that when President Bola Tinubu took office, the nation was on the verge of collapse.
Governor Abiodun on national television said: “The President Tinubu-led administration has been very bold and audacious.
“They have taken the bull by the horns. They’ve done what no government had done in the history of Nigeria.
“Tinubu inherited an administration that was almost comatose. I believe this government is very bold and taking the bull by the horns.
“President Tinubu has been able to do what no president has ever been able to do in the history of Nigeria.
“President Tinubu deregulated the petroleum industry to save Nigerians”.
However, the governor urged Nigerians to be patient with the President.
Dapo Abiodun said he was confident in the Tinubu-led administration to tackle the challenges facing Nigeria.
“You know our President, besides being a former governor and a senator, he is also an accountant.
“So, he is someone who is very spot on, and all hands are on deck to turn this economy around. We are very hopeful, and we can see the light at the end of the tunnel.”
This is coming a few days after the Anambra State Governor, Charles Soludo, said the administration of Tinubu took over a “dead economy”.
Soludo stated that the Tinubu regime inherited an economy already beyond revival before it assumed office.
“I said it before. This particular government inherited a dead economy from a microeconomic point of view.
“Unknown to the public, this government acquired a dead horse that was still visible.
On the same show, he stated, “I think it’s important for Nigerians to understand this.”
Meanwhile, Tinubu told Nigerians that his administration assumed significant economic and infrastructure deficits earlier this month while negotiating an infrastructure loan with Saudi Arabia.
Tinubu took over from President Muhammadu Buhari, an administration that saw Nigeria slide into recession.
Both Buhari and Tinubu are members of the same political party, the All Progressive Congress (Apc).
