Former governor of Benue State and senate of the federal republic, George Akume has slammed those claiming that President Muhammadu Buhari has not achieved anything since he assume power in May 2015.
He said those accusing Buhari of failing Nigerians are too blind to see his achievement.
He said, “I want to say with all emphasis that APC has not disappointed and has not failed this nation. We must recognise one fact that this government inherited a zero economy, we started from ground zero. Some said it’s even minus. There was nothing. We had a meeting with the president, we know what he told us on what he had to do before they started paying salaries.
“There was no money, don’t forget that when President Olusegun Obasanjo was leaving, we had N64 billion in foreign reserves. By the time President Muhammadu Buhari took over, we had less than N30 billion.
“The economy was comatose – everything including toothpicks were being imported and irredentist movements were all over the place. We had the Boko Haram ravaging the North-East, and in the South South, we had serious security challenges. Don’t also forget the fact that we had serious issues of kidnapping, robbery and the rest. I don’t want to talk about corruption. Nigerians know very well what took place in the past.”
