This visit comes despite Obasanjo’s recent criticism of the Tinubu administration’s policies.

On May 27, Obasanjo spoke out against the implementation of the fuel subsidy removal and the floating of the naira, stating that while the policies were necessary, they were poorly executed.

He also expressed disapproval of Nigeria’s approach to the coup in the Republic of Niger, speaking at a colloquium in Abuja over the weekend titled “Nigeria’s Development: Navigating the Way Out of the Current Economic Crisis and Insecurity.”
