Presidential candidate of All Progressives Congress (APC), General Muhammadu Buhari is angry with the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for what he called “litany of lies” its leaders have been peddling against him.
General Buhari, who reacted to a PDP’s newspaper advertorial about Nigeria’s military expenditure during his 20-month reign as Head of State, said that his short-lived regime expended more in equipping the military than President Goodluck Jonathan has done in four years.
“The advertorial in question is part of the litany of lies being peddled by the PDP and its presidential candidate to confuse Nigerians about how incapable the Jonathan administration is.”
In a statement by Garba Shehu, the Director of Media and Publicity of the APC Presidential Campaign Organisation, Buhari said that whereas he spent only 20 months in office and imported 940 million United States Dollar worth of arms when crude oil sold for between 10 and 14 US Dollar per barrel, President Jonathan spent 48 months in office and imported 284 million United State Dollars of arms between 2011 and 2013 when a barrel of crude oil sold for 140 million US Dollars.
“This is an administration that got revenue in an unprecedented proportion in the history of the country through the sale of crude oil and, at the same breadth, show-cased corruption and wastefulness in unprecedented proportions.
“Nigerians have seen through the nearly six years of the Goodluck Jonathan’s administration that it has been six years of stealing of crude oil at an industrial scale; six years of clueless leadership and six years of high-level corruption.
“The PDP doesn’t need to tell a lie about how wrongly President Jonathan has steered the affairs of the state in the past years, and that is why we need to remind Nigerians that this election is a referendum about the Jonathan’s administration.” [myad]
