President Muhammadu Buhari has hit out at his predessesors for “presiding over the destruction of Nigeria”.
This was the highlight of the President’s Independence Day Anniversary speech on Thursday morning.
The President insisted that no government has done as much as his administration has with the limited resources available to it.
“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 criticize our efforts.
“In the circumstances, a responsible government must face realities and take tough decisions,” the President said.
