This visit follows Obasanjo’s recent critique of the Tinubu administration on May 27, where he expressed concerns over the poor implementation of the fuel subsidy removal and the floating of the naira. He acknowledged the necessity of these policies but criticized their execution, stating they have exacerbated challenges for both individuals and businesses in Nigeria.


Additionally, Obasanjo, through a statement by his Special Assistant on Media, Kehinde Akinyemi, condemned Nigeria’s approach to the coup in the Republic of Niger, highlighting the tension it created between the two countries.
