Fani-Kayode Names Two Things Buhari Has Taken Away From Nigerians




A former Minister of Aviation in Nigeria, Femi Fani-Kayode, has berated President Muhammadu Buhari for taking away dignity & self-respect from Nigerians.

Naija News reports that President Buhari had said he was doing more with scarce resources than past governments in Nigeria did.

President Buhari made this claim in his nationwide broadcast to mark the nation’s 60th independence on Thursday, October 1.

President Buhari in the national broadcast, berated Presidents who governed Nigeria between 1999 and 2015 when he took over, saying they presided over the near destruction of the country.

This online news platform understands that former President Olusegun Obasanjo, late Umar Yaradua and former President Goodluck Jonathan were in charge of Nigeria during the period Buhari mentioned in his broadcast on Thursday.

President Buhari said: “No government in the past did what we are doing with such scarce resources.

“We have managed to keep things going in spite of the disproportionate spending on security.

“Those in the previous governments from 1999 – 2015 who presided over the near destruction of the country have now the impudence to attempt to criticise our efforts.

“In the circumstances, a responsible government must face realities and take tough decisions.”

Reacting to the attack, Fani-Kayode said: It is sad that Buhari attacked Obasanjo, Yar’adua & Jonathan in his speech. This is a case of misplaced aggression, an expression of frustration & an acknowledgement of his own failings. OBJ, UMYA & GEJ gave us back our dignity & self-respect. PMB came & took them back from us.”
