PDP did nothing for 16 years – Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari says the Peoples Democratic Party which ruled Nigeria for 16 years, accomplished nothing.


Buhari said this while addressing journalists in Daura on Monday after attending Eid prayers, according to a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Mr. Garba Shehu.

He said, “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.”

The President, however, argued that within a year, his government was able to crush Boko Haram.

He said he had intensified the war against corruption as those who diverted public funds had started returning the money.

The President further maintained that his war against corruption was not one-sided.

Buhari said, “Nigerians can see what we have done on Boko Haram and what we are doing to resolve the problem in the Niger Delta. Before the elections, we identified three major problems confronting our country.

“The first is security; we need to sufficiently secure our country to manage it well. The second is economy, especially job for the youths and fighting corruption which is continuous.

‘‘For the youths, graduates and non-graduates who are interested in agriculture, the Federal Ministry of Agriculture in collaboration with the CBN are doing something to provide employment for them.”

The President thanked Nigerians for supporting the Federal Government’s policies, programmes and actions aimed at improving security, revamping the economy and combating corruption.

‘‘We should thank God this year, the reports I’m getting, which is very pleasing, is that we will have a bumper harvest this year.

President Buhari is observing this year’s Eid holiday in his native home in Daura, Katsina State and will return to Abuja after the two-day public holiday.

  1. As much as I love you sir, people are beginning to turn. People are hungry even if the money for their food was stolen by someone in the past. They just want you to provide another money for them to eat first, and then you can chase the robber. That is the country you are running. Instant gratification. They want it now and right now. We are a generation of the biblical Israelites. They are asking you Mr. president, what have you done for me lately?
