Phrank Shaibu, an aide to former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar on communications, says the administration of President Bola Tinubu should govern instead of deploying propaganda now and again.

Shaibu said this on Monday after the ruling party said he was suffering from post-election stress disorder.

APC was responding to claims by Atiku’s aide who alleged that the Tinubu-led administration had told “10 big lies”.

In a statement, Shaibu said Nigerians are already running out of patience with the federal government.


“Tinubu claimed he wanted to cut the cost of governance and yet appointed 48 ministers out of which 10 are from his region. Yet the APC claims he is running a fair administration. This is laughable. Adams Oshiomhole even said last month that Tinubu inherited a bad situation,” he said.

“Wale Edun said recently that the last time Nigeria’s economy did well was 10 years ago. That is an admission of the failure that the APC represents.

“Under the watch of that blood-sucking party, poverty has reached unimaginable heights. Nigeria has even lost its crown as the largest producer of oil in Africa. What a shame.”


The aide said the federal government should tell Nigerians the landing cost of premium motor spirit (PMS), better known as petrol, as well as its pricing template.

“The Petroleum Industry Act mandates the total deregulation of the petroleum sector. A deregulated regime has no room for price control,” he said.

“If the APC is saying subsidy is not back, they should explain how petrol is still being sold at less than N650 per litre when the international price of crude oil is about $94 per barrel and the exchange rate on the I&E Window is N780/$1 and N1,000/$1 on the parallel market.

“How is it that diesel which has been deregulated currently costs about N1,000 per litre while petrol is over 25% less? Let the APC explain and stop peddling lies.”


Shaibu added that it is an irony that the federal government, which said it is fighting corruption, has detained Abdulrasheed Bawa, suspended chair of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
