Paul Ibe, the senior spokesman to former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, has raised concerns about President Bola Tinubu’s economic policies.

In an interview with Arise TV, Ibe described Tinubu’s plans as a “kabu-kabu kind of economic policy.”

He questioned the effectiveness of Tinubu’s economic approach, noting the absence of a visible economic team and prominent economic policies.

Ibe called on Nigerians to assess the progress made by Tinubu in fulfilling his campaign promises and addressing the nation’s challenges.

He emphasized the need for accountability and transparency in governance, urging leaders to deliver on their commitments.

His words: “I wonder where the claim that he built Lagos came from. Now is the time for the hard work; let him work the talk,” he said in an interview on Arise TV News.

“Prophet Tinubu, before he became President Tinubu was speaking about this time in 2012 in the episode you referred to.

“Because there’s nothing in that letter that could not be situated in 2024. We’ve been waiting for the magic that Tinubu had.

“The magic that led to his building Lagos forgetting that Lagos had been a Federal Capital for donkey years. Had enjoyed resources and infrastructural development so I wonder where the claim that he built Lagos came from.

“So now is time for the hard work. Let him work. Where is the magic… attributed to him?

“Where is his so-called economic team? What we’re seeing in the last nine months is trial by error. It’s a kabu-kabu kind of economic policy…nothing seems to have changed. But again, let’s ask ourselves this question, what did Tinubu promise us?

“Tinubu promised us he was going to follow the path of former President Muhammadu Buhari. And what was that path? Massive taking of loans, where loans were being taken to pay the interest for loans, Buhari was known for bigotry and nepotism. We thought we’d seen the worst. It is a continuation of Buhari’s policies.”
