Tinubu Urged to Address Hunger Concerns

Expressing concern over reports of hunger in the South-West, Sowunmi urged President Tinubu to confront the prevailing issues directly.

Critique of Tinubu’s Taxation System

Concerns Over Neo-Liberal Policies

Highlighting the impact of policy failures on the citizens, Sowunmi emphasized that the burden should not be placed on the people.

He criticized what he referred to as President Tinubu’s “neo-liberal policies,” stating that they are off-tangent and contribute to increasing poverty levels.

Call for Dialogue and Critical Review

Sowunmi concluded by calling for open conversations on the economic challenges facing the nation.

He urged a critical examination of the policies in place and emphasized the need for solutions that are people-centric, advocating for a reconsideration of taxation approaches and measures to alleviate the economic hardships experienced by Nigerians.
