President Buhari says his administration is doing its best in carrying out its mandate especially with regards to fighting corruption.
The president said this while speaking at the closing ceremony of the one-year ministerial performance review retreat in Abuja on Tuesday.
Buhari asked the “Nigerian elites” to judge him fairly, and that ministers should vigorously defend the government.
He said he has done more with little resources compared to the previous administrations when oil sold at a higher rate.
I have charged all of you to defend the government vigorously and not allow any irresponsible and politically motivated statements to keep spreading falsehoods about this government.
Information to the public should be better packaged; go on the offensive, we are proud of our achievements and we should blow our own trumpets.
I want the Nigerian elites, please encourage them, to judge us fairly… the average production of oil in the country, from 1999 to 2014, was 2.1 million barrels per day (and) sold at an average price of $100.
I want you to please reflect. What was the condition of the infrastructure then, in spite of those earnings? The roads, the rail is dead and there was no power, up till now no power; where does the money go?
