NIGERIA – President Buhari blames the present recession on the former PDP led administration
President Muhammadu Buhari attacked the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) again on Monday dismissing its 16 years of governing the country as extremely wasteful. He told journalists in his Daura hometown after the Eid-el-Kabir celebrations through a statement signed by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Malam Shehu Garba :
‘‘I want Nigerians to realise that what this government inherited after 16 years of the PDP government was no savings, no infrastructure, no power, no rail, no road and no security,”
This is the second attack within 2 days that the president has attacked the PDP’s governance.
The president had in an Eid-el-Kabir message on Sunday blamed the recession on the lack of savings by the Jonathan administrations.
“The present recession is as a result of cumulative effects of worldwide economic downturn and failure in the past to plan and save for difficult times.”
