Presidency frowns at PDP's 30 days appraisal of Buhari's administration

29 June 2015, 08:12

Abuja - The Presidency has described the 30-day appraisal of Muhammadu Buhari's administration by the National Publicity Secretary of the People's Democratic Party (PDP), Olisa Metuh, as amusing to read.

This information is contained in a statement issued in Abuja on Sunday by the Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to the president, Femi Adesina.

The statement read: "It is amusing to read what the National Publicity Secretary of the defeated People's Democratic Party (PDP), Olisa Metuh, considers a 30-day appraisal of President Muhammadu Buhari's administration.

"He wants Nigerians to join hands in prayers for the government, so that things would begin to move. What he does not know is that Nigerians had long formed such coalition. They are hands in hands, and that was what gave victory to President Buhari in the March 28, 2015 poll.

"They 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 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 talks of people round the President conniving with bureaucrats to siphon money from the treasury.

"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 statement concluded that "Metuh and his masters can only rue the missed opportunities to make salutary impact on the lives of Nigerians. They have a long road of regrets to travel."
