Atiku tackles Buhari over comment against Obasanjo’s govt

Invest In Mutual Funds Like A Hero

Previous Vice President Atiku Abubakar has advised the President, Muhammadu Buhari. Furthermore, his system to adhere to realities while reprimanding past organizations.

In an obvious reaction to Buhari’s 60th Independence commemoration discourse on October 1, Atiku shielded financial choices taken by the President Olusegun Obasanjo – drove organization in which he filled in as Vice President.

In a tweet on his checked Twitter handle @atiku, on Friday, the previous Vice President expressed: “Somewhere in the range of 1999 and 2007, Nigeria took care of her whole unfamiliar obligation while keeping up an uncommon 6 percent yearly GDP development.

“Those were times of public reclamation, and I am pleased with the work President Obasanjo and I accomplished for this country we care such a great amount for. Realities don’t lie.”

Buhari had in his Independence Day anniversary nationwide address singled out all Peoples Democratic Party administrations beginning from Obasanjo’s in 1999 up to that of President Goodluck Jonathan in 2015, of presiding over the near destruction of Nigeria.

According to the President, none of his predecessors achieved what his regime was currently achieving with the scarce resources available.

The president said, “No government in the past did what we are doing with such scarce resources. We have managed to keep things going in spite of the disproportionate spending on security.

“Those in the previous governments from 1999 to 2015, who presided over the near destruction of the country have now the impudence to attempt to criticise our efforts. In the circumstances, a responsible government must face realities and take tough decisions.”

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo, the late President Umaru Yar’adua and former President Goodluck Jonathan were in charge of the country during the period referenced by Buhari.
