In almost 4 years in control of the Nigeria administrations. President Buhari has not initiated
and completed any major project. He has only managed to complete about 5 projects started by the PDP government. Yet Mr President is still continuing with his condemnations against the past administrations ruled by PDP candidates.
Buhari again on Monday tackled his predecessors for allegedly failing to invest in infrastructure despite the resources that accrued to Nigeria under their watch.
But the only time we made huge money from oil was 2008 to 2014. In fact, Buhari is making more money in 4 years than Obasanjo made in 8 years. So why complain?
According to a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr Femi Adesina, the President spoke while receiving the outgoing British High Commissioner to Nigeria, Paul Arkwright, at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
Buhari said with the humongous resources at the disposal of Nigeria between 1999 and 2014, it was sad that infrastructure went to rot completely within the same period.
Although he did not mention names, former Presidents Olusegun Obasanjo, Umaru Yar’Adua and Goodluck Jonathan were in the saddle between 1999 and 2014.
Buhari was quoted as stating, “Our focus now is on infrastructure – roads, rail, power, and others. How I wish we had fixed all those when we had money.
“What we earned between 1999 and 2014 is on record, but nothing was done to infrastructure. Now, we are doing a lot more with a lot less resources. And we shall continue to do our best.”
