He however maintained that the statement issued by the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, in response to the earlier criticism by former President Obasanjo had already addressed the issues raised.
“Already, the statement issued few months ago by the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, in response to the earlier criticism made against the government by Obasanjo had adequately addressed the issues raised.”
He also said the APC led government would keep making reference to the failures of the past administration, although they do not see it as complaining about the challenges of the country as highlighted by Obasanjo.
On the management of the economy, he noted that Nigeria now has more savings and accused the past administration of running the nation badly, despite the benefit of enjoying high crude oil prices.
