Why Tinubu must hold govs, lawmakers responsible for hardship – Oluwo

President Bola Tinubu and Oluwo of Iwo land

 

The Oluwo of Iwo, Oba Adewale Akanbi, has called on President Bola Tinubu to hold governors, and national and state Assembly members accountable for the hardship Nigerians are going through presently.

The monarch who made the call while addressing journalists in his palace, challenged the governors and National Assembly members to explain why Nigerians are suffering despite the huge federal allocation shared by the federal government.

Oluwo however assured Nigerians that the current hardship facing the country is temporary.

“What is going on in Nigeria now is temporary. Economists will tell you that the step that the federal government is taking is the right one.

“There is no way residents can get money except through the governors, senators, House of Representatives members, and council chairmen.

“The allocation being given to the state now is large, and no government has given such an allocation before.

“The subsidy money is being given out by the federal government. So, why are Nigerians still hungry? It means something is wrong with those getting the funds.

“It seems that they are protecting themselves; if not, the president ought to have asked them what they are putting the money into. This is the time for the president to demand accountability,” he said.
