Buhari Is Cleaning Up The Mess Into Which PDP Threw Nigeria – Femi Adesina

Special adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari on media and publicity, Femi Adesina has said that what the President in the last 30 days has been doing is to clean up the socio-economic and political mess into which Peoples Democratic Party (PDP’s) 16-year old government had thrown Nigeria.

Reacting to the PDP assessment of President Buhari in his 30 days in office as contained in a statement issued earlier today by the national publicity secretary of the party, Olisa Metuh, Adesina said that Nigerians had teamed up to uproot an administration that had brought the country to her knees, and was about to tip her off the precipice.

“And Nigerians have resolved that never would they allow any government to divide them along regional, religious and ethnic fault lines again.

“The Buhari administration is naturally contemplative because there was absolutely no rhyme or reason to the way PDP ran the country, particularly in the immediate past dispensation. That is why the Augean Stable is being cleaned now, and it requires scrupulous and painstaking planning. Across all sectors, our national life was devalued, and it takes meticulousness and sure-footedness to repair all the breaches. This, the Buhari administration will deliver.”

Metuh had asked Nigerians to join hands in prayers for the government, so that things would begin to move, but Adesina responded that what he did not know is that Nigerians had long formed such coalition and that they are hands in hands, leading to victory to President Buhari in the March 28, 2015 poll.

To Metuh’s saying that people around the President are conniving with bureaucrats to siphon money from the treasury, Adesina said: “This must be deja vu, as it was the pastime of the immediate past administration, and the enormity of the sleaze will be evident when stolen money, to the tune of billions of dollars, is recovered, and returned to the national treasury soon.

“In the process of time, after all that is being planned by the current administration has matured, and bearing fruits, Nigerians will be able to determine who is serving them acceptably, and who has taken them for a ride. It is just a matter of time.”

The President spokesman said that Metuh and his masters can only rue the missed opportunities to make salutary impact on the lives of Nigerians, adding that they have a long road of regrets to travel. [myad]
