Yoruba Ronu: Your Son Has Turn Nigeria’s Economy Into A Desert, By Buhari Olanrewaju Ahmed



Yoruba Ronu: Your Son Has Turn Nigeria’s Economy Into A Desert, By Buhari Olanrewaju Ahmed

Elections truly have consequences. The policies and decisions of our leaders indeed have impacts on our lives

Things are no longer the same, not even when the so-called acclaimed Democrat, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, took over from Dictator Muhammadu Buhari, who had devastated the economy and enriched his own people.

Insecurity has been a major concern. It’s been 8 months since Tinubu took over from Buhari. Hundreds of people have been killed. In a single day, almost 200 people were killed in Plateau state by suspected Fulani militia. Yet, Tinubu felt comfortable inside the Aso Rock. He traveled out of the country every time people were said to be killed or kidnapped.

Kidnapping in Nigeria has become a lucrative business that many people are involved in. The anti-people policies implemented by Tinubu have harmed numerous businesses in the country and led to the premature deaths of hundreds of people. It is obvious that Tinubu is enforcing the International Monetary Fund (IMF) agenda against the desires of the people.

Nigeria’s current inflation rate stands at 29% and is projected to reach 49% in the second quarter. This indicates a looming disaster if the government fails to address the issue promptly. People are already expressing their discontent with the economic hardship in the country by shouting “Ebi npa wa.”

Tinubu has been using the Lagos template to replicate the problems of over 200 million Nigerians. He removed fuel subsidy without providing any other alternatives, deliberately causing the demise of many businesses and leaving people feeling hopeless, all while benefiting from the people’s taxes.

Tinubu is not as messy as the sojourn of Yoruba Ronu claimed, and he can never be like Awolowo or MKO Abiola. He’s not different from Joseph Stalin, who brought in a live chicken, plucked it until it was naked and bleeding, and found the chicken with grain despite the pain.

Tinubu has never been a genuine leader, as he claims, not even in the South-West, where innocent people have been killed and kidnapped by Fulani herdsmen. Our people can no longer go to their farmland to farm because of the fear of the unknown.

Famine has engulfed the country, leading to widespread hunger and deaths. The prices of food have skyrocketed due to many farmers abandoning their land. Unfortunately, the Tinubu government has failed to address this critical situation.

Until the Nigerian government is ready to end this herder menace, if not, we will transition from inflation to famine.

The famine in the country is a reality, showing that Tinubu has emphatically proven to be economically illiterate, contrary to the desperate and misleading claims made by his supporters prior to the presidential election.

The cost of living has skyrocketed considerably, and even the minimum wage is not sufficient to purchase a single bag of rice, let alone meet other financial needs.

The way forward, Tinubu needs to stop giving governors palliatives to share. The governors are pursuing their own selfish interests. Instead, they should distribute palliatives to those in need, rather than favoring their party members and leaving vulnerable people helpless.

Meanwhile, palliative care can never and would never cushion hunger or solve Nigeria’s problems. Nigeria’s challenges require a comprehensive approach that includes measures to control inflation, increase income levels, create jobs, provide social safety nets, diversify the economy, improve governance, and invest in infrastructure.

The Tinubu administration should give priority to diversifying the economy, particularly by fostering growth in sectors such as agriculture, manufacturing, and technology. This approach can generate additional job opportunities and lessen reliance on imported goods.

He should prioritize economic revival and strategic resource management for Nigeria’s benefit, rather than solely enriching his associates.

Those who shouted “Yoruba Ronu” before the 2023 presidential election are now lamenting, blaming their once-admired son for causing them hardship. Many have lost their jobs, and numerous businesses have been shut down due to the anti-policy enacted by their own son.

Now that we have a common enemy, we need to show the world that Yorubas are not bastards. All of us need to come out en masse and protest against Tinubu, who only feeds his family with our patrimony and has enslaved 200 million Nigerians under IMF anti-people policies.

Elections truly have consequences. The policies and decisions of our leaders indeed have impacts on our lives, either positive or negative. Tinubu’s policies have turned millions of Nigerians into beggars.
