Buba Galadima, a notable figure in the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), has expressed his disapproval of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s pledge to perpetuate the policies of his predecessor, Muhammadu Buhari.

He views this as a continuation of a governance approach that has proven problematic.

In a recent discussion with Saturday Sun in Abuja, Galadima pointed out that Tinubu’s vow to maintain Buhari’s policies is at odds with his administration’s current efforts to distance itself from the nation’s challenges.

Galadima highlighted that during his campaign, President Tinubu made it clear that his administration would build upon the policies of his predecessor. As such, the recent attempts by Tinubu and his cabinet to attribute the current economic difficulties to the previous administration are seen as misleading.

Galadima insists that President Tinubu should accept the responsibilities of his office, given his declared intention to follow in Buhari’s footsteps. He believes it is unjust to now lay the blame at Buhari’s door.

As a former ally of the immediate past President, Muhammadu Buhari, Galadima stated, “I don’t want politicians to play the blame game. It’s common knowledge that Buhari has impacted this country in numerous ways, particularly in terms of the economy and security. Everyone is aware of this. It’s not news. However, Tinubu has also told us that he was going to build on what Buhari left behind. So, that’s the only promise he made, that he was going to start from where Buhari stopped. He can’t blame Buhari. He has already assumed responsibility for what Buhari has done.”

Galadima also shared his reasons for continuing to oppose the establishment of state police in the country. He warned that the use of state police could lead to abuses of power and potential victimization of governors by their successors.

Galadima dismissed accusations of nepotism against Tinubu, arguing that the presidential system inherently encourages nepotism, even in the United States. He emphasized that what matters is not who is appointed, but their ability to deliver good governance and accountability.
