Independence: Facts Don’t Lie, Atiku Replies Buhari On Performance

Independence: Facts Don’t Lie, Atiku Replies Buhari On Performance (Updated: 2 years ago)


Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar has advised the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), and his regime to stick to facts when criticising previous administrations.

In an apparent response to Buhari’s 60th Independence anniversary speech on October 1, Atiku defended economic decisions taken by the President Olusegun Obasanjo-led administration in which he served as a Vice President.

In a tweet on his verified Twitter handle, @atiku, on Friday, the former Vice President wrote:

“Between 1999 and 2007, Nigeria paid off her entire foreign debt while maintaining an unprecedented six per cent annual GDP growth.

“Those were periods of national restoration, and I am very proud of the work President Obasanjo and I did for this nation we care so much for. Facts don’t lie.”

Buhari had in his Independence Day anniversary nationwide address singled out 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.
