Lagos - Former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani- Kayode has again come down hard on President Muhammadu Buhari over his comments that he inherited nothing from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) administrations of former Presidents Olusegun Obasanjo, late Umaru Musa Yar’ Adua and Goodluck Jonathan.
The former minister said Buhari has either lost his memory or was not well-informed when he told Nigerians that he inherited nothing from the PDP administrations, reports Vanguard.
Buhari made the comment on Monday after attending Eid prayers in Daura, Katsina State on the heels of the economic recession in the country, reports Tribune
He also alleged that governments of the former ruling party achieved nothing in terms of infrastructural development in all its years in power.

He listed the former PDP members who help Buhari to power to include former President Olusegun Obasanjo; former Vice President Atiku Abubakar; Senate President Bukola Saraki; Speaker, House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara; former Speakers Aminu Tambuwal, Aminu Masari; Umar Ghali Naaba; former minister of the Federal Capital Territory and governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El- Rufai;
