“Tinubu’s Policies Have Taken Nigeria Back to 1983 Hunger Crisis,” Says Ozekhome


Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Mike Ozekhome, has voiced strong criticism against the policies of the Bola Ahmed Tinubu-led administration, accusing it of pushing Nigeria back into a state of hunger and deprivation reminiscent of the 1983 era.

Ozekhome articulated his concerns during an appearance on Channels Television’s Politics Today, where he underscored the adverse effects of removing subsidies without implementing sufficient measures to alleviate the ensuing hardships.

Expressing dissatisfaction with the government’s tendency to attribute blame to past administrations, Ozekhome underscored the necessity for a reevaluation of current policies.

He asserted, “The removal of subsidies occurred without any efforts to alleviate the severe impact it has had.”

“In essence, Nigeria finds itself regressing to the conditions prevalent prior to 1983, characterized by widespread hunger and starvation.”

The legal luminary urged a return to the drawing board, stressing the importance of tackling inherited challenges and crafting policies that prioritize the well-being of the Nigerian populace.
