The Presidency has maintained that the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration is working and has presented proofs to back up the claim.
In a series of tweets via her social media page, the Personal Assistant to Buhari on Social Media, Lauretta Onochie, presented fact sheets on the Buhari’s administration and wrote:
“What the noise was all about. What they did not want you to hear or See. But the government was not distracted.”
Part of the tweets posted alongside the fact sheets read: “Restoring the moral of Nigerian Military: Reorganizing and better equipping the Nigerian Armed Forces.
“Purchase of 12 Super Tucano aircraft worth $600m to aid the Nigerian Military’s current operation in the North East.
“Ensuring continued peace in the Niger Delta through constituent funding of Federal Government’s Amnesty programme for ex-Militants.
“Implementing the National Economic Recovery and Growth Plan, ERGP, to aid economic recovery, taking the country out of her worst recession in 29 years despite fall in oil price.
“Trillions expended on capital/infrastructure project nationwide, a milestone in the nation’s history.
“Effective implementation of Treasury Single Bill Account and increasing government revenue by over N3 trillion.” Click here to view the fact sheets.
In a related development, following the criticisms that trailed Buhari’s address to world leaders at the 72nd United Nations General Assembly (UNGA), the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina has condemned Buhari’s critics.
Speaking during an interview in New York, Adesina described such persons as “professional critics” who never see anything good. His words:
“Those that condemn the quality of the speech have a right to their views. The funny thing is that most of them may not have read, nor did they listen to the speech.
“They are professional critics who never see anything good in anything. If such people mistakenly get into heaven, they will complain about God.
“There will always be naysayers around. As the saying goes, no drummer can ever please all dancers. If 98 people out of 100 praise you, there will always be the two, who will never see anything good in what you have done.
“We must learn to live with, and tolerate the views of such people. They have a right to their opinions.”
Adesina also defended the decision of his principal to be silent on the activities of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) during his UN speech.
“The IPOB situation is an internal matter, which the government is dealing firmly with.
“It is not a UN matter. It is those who overrate themselves that think something like that must be brought up at a global platform like the UN.
“The President swore to uphold the Nigerian constitution, and the constitution recognises an indivisible country. It is a president who holds his own promises with flippancy that will allow the country to scatter under him,” Adesina said.
