The Buhari Media Support Group (BMSG) reiterates the claim that President Muhammadu Buhari has met the expectations of Nigerians in the past two years.
The BMSG stresses in a press statement issued on Monday, 17 April, 2017 that while the Buhari administration inherited a country at the edge of the cliff where the previous PDP government had pushed Nigeria as at May 29, 2015, the APC administration has been able to steer the country away from a fatal fall to a condition of sure footing.
The BMSG describes the statement signed by the National Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Prince Dayo Adeyeye, which claims that the PDP handed over a healthy country in 2015 as, “a ridiculous sham that leaves no room for true conscience.”
It reminds the PDP the vim with which Nigerians voted out the erstwhile ruling party. “The epochal defeat of the PDP in the 2015 election remains a verdict of no-confidence on the PDP. Such was the level of desecration of public trust by the PDP and its officials that every busted case of corruption in the country must come with the emblem of the party. No farce as the PDP might want to weave together can obliterate the memory of the abyss the PDP took the country while it reigned.”
The BMSG notes that but for the swashbuckling military campaign launched by the Buhari administration, Nigeria under the immediate past PDP government had lurched towards a failed state competing side by side with terrorists for territorial claims.
“It is therefore confounding that the same PDP is today making wild, shameful claim of ‘successfully dislodging the terrorist sect before the 2015 general election.’ It sounds as though the Goodluck Jonathan government inherited an incomplete country, to make it look like competing with terrorists for territorial claims is a worthy achievement”.
On the fight against corruption, the group notes that the chutzpah employed by the Buhari government in the fight against graft has gained global applause, and with remarkable results to show for it. “It is therefore a mockery of true conscience that PDP – the same PDP that has corruption as its emblem – will put up a bold face to denigrate the tremendous feat the Buhari administration has recorded on the fight against corruption.”
On the economy, the BMSG notes that the seeming early inertia was a consequence of the plundering of the economy by the PDP, noting: “the good news now is that the Buhari administration has successfully plugged all the leakages in the economy and Nigeria is at the threshold of an economic policy framework that will work for every Nigerian irrespective of social class through the Economic Recovery and Growth Plan (ERGP).”
According to the group, “This, of course, is a sharp departure from the Goodluck Jonathan’s economic plan of No Plan that saw the economy adrift and exposed to buccaneers in government who raided the economy with reckless abandon.”
