I inherited nothing from Obasanjo, Yar’Adua, Jonathan — Buhari | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper f


President Muhammadu Buhari said, yesterday, he inherited no legacy from the previous governments of Presidents Olusegun Obasanjo, Umaru Musa Yar’Adua and Goodluck Jonathan.

 The President, who spoke against the backdrop of current economic recession facing the country, said the administrations left nothing to build on.

He said patriotic Nigerians had nothing to fear as far as the war against corruption was concerned, stressing that his government would be fair to all. Buhari, who spoke in Daura, Katsina State, shortly after attending Eid prayers to celebrate Eid-el-Kabir, warned that whose who abused public trust would face justice, in addition to returning their stolen assets to the nation’s coffers.

The President expressed gratitude to Nigerians for supporting Federal Government’s policies, programmes and actions aimed at improving security, revamping the economy and combating corruption. He said: “We should thank God, the reports I’m getting, which is very pleasing, is that we will have a bumper harvest this year.

 I want Nigerians to realise that what this government inherited after 16 years of PDP government was no savings, no infrastructure, no power, no rail, no road and no security. “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 the economy, especially jobs 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, is doing something to provide employment for them.”

  1. At least you inherited a secured job for people where companies did not downsize anyhow nor folded up. You also inherited a truly independent and functional INEC that conducted a transparent and conclusive election under GEJ
    . But the story is totally different today. The truth is that you are not a good manager of economy. TSA policy was ill timed.GEJ designed it and kept it down waiting for the right time to implement it. You came with military attitude hurriedly implemented it. The implication is that trillions were withdrawn from monetary circulation. The effect is that micro, small and big companies felt it and they started closing up leading to loss of jobs in millions. On the INEC, GEJ never recorded inconclusive election but under your administration we started to hear about inclusive election

  2. Hahahaha! This matter is not funny ooo! Baba so the railways you commissioned in Abuja you used the money from the sales of your cattle's in Daura to do it? Childish lies and it pains if it is coming from elders. People could not afford Sallah ram and rice aless than two years into your administration and you are adding insult into injury.
    You could as well mention Lord Lugard and colonial period kwo! Baba it is not good ooo+ ALLAH.
