Abati warns Buhari against committing Jonathan's errors

01 April 2016, 14:46

Abuja - Reuben Abati, former presidential aide to former President Goodluck Jonathan has advised President Muhammadu Buhari not to make the same mistakes made by the immediate past administration.

In a piece titled ”It’s time to put Nigeria first” the former editorial board chairman of the Guardian newspapers stated that the All Progressives Congress (APC) has failed to realise that they are now in power.

He said the administration of President Buhari has failed to move quickly from campaign to governance mode.

He wrote: ”I blame the APC strategists for allowing things to remain at this level. They have failed to see the need to move quickly from campaign to governance mode. They are also behaving as if they are under the spell of Karma.

”The PDP wailers are tying them down, with taunts, forcing them to still campaign after the election. They have now pushed them to become defensive, the exact place where the PDP was more than a year ago, but it is worse, as the APC and its agents have become irritable.

”The result is that the APC and its government are beginning to over-react to every little provocation. They used to accuse the Jonathan government of being reactive rather than pro-active (I never agreed), but that is what they are doing now, and it is worse according to current testimonies.”

Dr Abati stated that the biggest challenge that Nigeria faces at the moment is political partisanship, which he says has divided the country into the camps of rights and wrongs.
