Tinubu’s policies are anti-people, Borno analyst

The Borno-born professor explained that the policies of Tinubu affected the entire north, and the elites were not happy with such development.

The professor maintained that most of the president’s appointees are either misfits, weak, or they are in the wrong places. The elder statesman added that most of the appointments made by President Bola Tinubu are lopsided.

Prof Dikwa said even “the southern elite should be annoyed because Nigeria is more than Lagos”.

Shettima’s kinsman criticises CBN cybersecurity levy

He then described the 0.5% cybersecurity levy on electronic transactions as a provocative move by the current administration through the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) and called on the president to order the CBN to suspend the implementation of the new policy.

His comment reads:

“This is not the time, it’s wrong timing. Why are they provoking the people of this country? They have taken enough.”

The CBN introduced the cybersecurity levy as provided in the Cybercrime Act.

Tinubu returns to Nigeria

TheTalk.NG earlier reported that President Tinubu has landed at the presidential villa in Abuja after he visited the Netherlands and Saudi Arabia.

Tinubu returned after spending two weeks outside the country and one week after he was last seen in Saudi Arabia.

The president’s return came barely a week after the former vice president Atiku Abubakar raised concerns about his whereabouts.
