It’s Wrong To Link Tinubu With Buhari’s Actions In Govt- Oshiomhole

The former National Chairman of the All Progressive Congress, APC, Adams Ashiomhole, says it would be wrong to link the presidential candidate of the APC, Bola Ahmed Tinubu to the actions of President Muhammadu Buhari

There had been attempts by government critics to blame Tinubu for some of the failings of Buhari’s regime, especially in the areas of security and economy.

Oshiomhole who was a guest on Arise TV program on Wednesday, said Tinubu never held any position in Buhari’s government and also did not take any government contract in the last seven years.

Oshiomhole said Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo who heads the National Executive Council has a bigger role in Buhari’s regime than Tinubu.

“You can’t say someone who never in any way participated in government should be credited with the outcome of government policies or be blamed either way,” he said.

Oshiomhole added, “I think in apportioning blame or crediting people, you look at their role. It is a fact that Asiwaju by himself said, yes, he co-founded the APC. I was a co-founding governor of the APC along with Fashola and other governors but he never participated in governance, he never held any position in government, he didn’t carry out a contract on behalf of the government so how can you credit him either way? This is just being fair.”

Oshiomhole is among those expected to lead Tinubu’s campaign organisation.
