Buhari fires back at Jonathan

President Muhammadu Buhari yesterday hit back at his predecessor, Goodluck Jonathan, for alleging that his administration had failed in governance. Through his spokesman, Mr Femi Adesina, he dismissed Jonathan’s assertion that for more than two years the All Progressives Congress had been in power, it had not recorded any achievement, and that the party had continued to feed Nigerians with lies and had deployed hi-tech propaganda to cover up its misrule.

The former leader had Thursday while receiving a chairmanship aspirant of the People’s Democratic Party, Tunde Adeniran, said those who criticised his administration for leaving fuel price at N87 per litre were quiet now that Buhari had hiked it to N143.

Jonathan stated: “When the price of crude oil was going for over seventy something dollars per barrel, we brought down the pump price of fuel to N87. Now that the global price of crude oil goes for $53, the pump price is N143. Those who attacked us did not say anything because they have seen it.”

But via Twitter yesterday, President Buhari’s spokesman stated that trust made the difference between both incidents which were recalled by Jonathan.

According to Adesina, Nigerians held their peace when the present administration increased the fuel price to N145 per litre because of the trust they have in Buhari unlike when they shut down the nation in January 2012 when Jonathan’s government increased it from N65 to N141.

“When petrol went to N145 under PMB, Nigerians held their peace, unlike when they shut the country in 2012. The difference is trust. Simple,” the presidential spokesman tweeted.
