In 117 days, Atiku claims to have exposed 10 of President Tinubu’s alleged lies

Phrank Shaibu, Atiku Abubakar’s special assistant on public communications, has warned Nigerians to be wary of what he described as a deliberate strategy by the Bola Tinubu administration to use propaganda to mislead people

In a statement released on Sunday in Abuja, Shaibu urged Nigerians not to believe the sincere regret expressed by Chief Ajuri Ngelale, the President’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, and others because “they are only sorry they got caught”

He claims that the President’s handlers have been exposed for at least ten embarrassing lies that were spread throughout Nigeria over a 117-day period

He continued, “It is ample proof that Tinubu’s administration would use propaganda as a state policy because he has more media aides than economic and security experts

“I would advise the Nigerian media to always fact-check every assertion made by this administration in order to preserve their credibility. Go outside to check if the sun is shining if the Tinubu government declares that it is morning”

These are the 10 lies of the Tinubu regime I have compiled so far,” Shaibu continued

“1. In his inaugural speech, Bola Tinubu made the false claim that the gasoline subsidy had been eliminated. Given the current oil price of $94 per barrel and the naira’s exchange rate of N1,000 to $1, diesel is currently nearly N1,000 per litre while gasoline is still about N620. The viewpoint that all oil marketers have adopted is that gasoline is currently being subsidized, which is clear to the astute mind. Nigerians shouldn’t fall for lies. The assertion by Tinubu that there is no subsidy is a devil’s advocate falsehood, and the fact that they are even withholding the data indicates a lack of transparency and the likelihood that more money is being taken

“2. The second falsehood spread by these charlatans was that all Nigerians were now free to travel to Dubai because the United Arab Emirates had instantly abolished its prohibition on the country’s citizens obtaining visas. Many undiscerning Nigerians, whose only sin was to believe the false statements of an unreliable administration, enthusiastically cheered this deception. Later, UAE authorities told CNN that everything was a hoax. What a shame for the country!

“3. This dishonest government’s third falsehood is that Tinubu was the first president of an African country to ring the NASDAQ bell. Since then, it has been shown that Jakaya Kikwete, the president of Malawi, rang the bell on September 21, 2011

The US Presidential Envoy and Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs, Ambassador Molly Phee, was quoted as saying, “President Joe Biden is asking to meet with you on the sidelines of UNGA and you are the only African leader he has requested to meet. This is another lie. It shows how highly he regards your leadership. Well, Tinubu has left the UNGA and this has shown to be yet another embarrassing untruth

“5. Tinubu’s assertion that “We have retooled the exchange rate to a reliable, dependable one figure floating of the naira” was a fifth falsehood that was made on the NASDAQ floor. You are allowed to bring in money and take money out. But this is yet another devilish deception. The I&E Window’s exchange rate is approximately N780 for every $1, but the parallel market’s rate is approximately N1,000 for every $1. In addition, there are still approximately $600 million in international airlines’ Nigerian accounts. Due to this, Tinubu was lying when he declared, “You are free to take in your money and bring out your money

“6. On August 14, 2023, the Nigerian government announced on its official Twitter account that terrorists gathered at Kurebe in Shiroro LGA in Niger State had been struck by a Nigerian Air Force strike. The terrorists, according to the administration, were defeated. Now, Premium Times has uncovered in its most recent investigation that this is all misinformation because the people who died were unarmed citizens. Is it not terrible how the Bola Tinubu administration’s lies have now spread to the military? The body of the fish cannot survive corruption once the head has gone bad

“7. The Central Bank of Nigeria announced on September 6, 2023 that it will infuse $10 billion into the foreign exchange market to eliminate the FX backlog as part of Bola Tinubu’s marketing campaign. No money has been injected into the system for days after the deadline expired while the naira continues to plunge. There is no institution that Tinubu’s administration can save from destruction

“8. Tinubu declared, “As your President, I shall serve with prejudice towards none,” in his inauguration speech. This, however, turned out to be yet another outright untruth. The CBN, FIRS, customs, army, police, and immigration are just a few of the critical positions that have been given to members of the country by Tinubu’s government of the clannish, by the clannish, and for the clannish, while he serves as the petroleum and gas minister. Only five ministers were chosen from the southeast by Tinubu, who picked ten from the southwest. If this is not prejudice, what else is it?

9. The Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited asserted last month that it had secured a $3 billion Afrexim loan to help stabilize the naira. We alerted people that everything was a hoax to fool Nigerians. We now have justification because Afrexim Bank has declined to comment on the naira’s current black market rate of $1/N1,000. Simply put, this was audio cash

10. The Student Loan Act, which Tinubu signed on June 12, was maybe the biggest fraud and deception of his administration. The new law solely permits student loans for tuition. It doesn’t pay for any additional schooling costs. All federal government schools started raising tuition after the law was signed. However, Dele Alake, who at the time served as the Special Adviser on Media, stated in a statement that all public institutions continue to offer free tuition and that the only fees that have increased are those for housing, lab, libraries, and other expenses. Therefore, the Student Loan Act is useless and no money will be given if tuition is free as the Act solely covers tuition fees

In essence, Tinubu’s administration has pushed government schools to raise tuition while forgoing student loans. This is the height of depravity and dishonesty
