Buhari not responsible for Nigeria’s economic woes, says Lawmaker

A former lawmaker representing Rivers East Senatorial District, APC, Sen. Andrew Uchendu has said THE President Muhammadu Buhari-led government is not directly responsible for the economic and insecurity misfortune in the country.

NAN reports that Uchendu made this known during an interview with newsmen on Tuesday in PortHarcourt.

The lawmaker blamed the current hardship in the country on poor policies and programmes of successive administrations starting from 1992.

He noted that the Buhari-led government was currently developing the needed infrastructure for a progressive future.

“However, if you say that President Buhari has done well in the marketplace and church, you may be stoned or criticised. But the truth is that he has performed well.

“The gullibility of the society has made it difficult for us to reason and see the truth in the tremendous milestones this administration has made.

“People forget that Nigeria’s problems have been made complex by the failures of successive administration since 1992, which cannot be solely pinned on one government or anybody.

“The government has invested heavily in agriculture resulting in the tremendous growth in local rice production, partly helped by the ban on foreign rice imports.

“Government is reactivating the oil palm production; reactivation of ports, railways and development of roads and bridges are ongoing,” he said.
