The
Presidency on Monday night said the administration of President
Muhammad Buhari would not join issues with former President Olusegun
Obasanjo over his comments on Buhari administration.

The
News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Obasanjo had on Monday while
addressing a group of youths who visited him at his country home
Abeokuta described the Buhari administration as a failure.

Obasanjo
also asked the All Progressives Congress (APC)-led government to stop
complaining about the challenges it met on the ground.
“What
we have now is failure. Never you reinforce failure, let failure be
failure… Those of you who are in business, your business could have been
better today if we have a competent and effective and performing
government.”
However,
the President’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr Femi
Adesina, who responded to Obasanjo’s comments in a telephone interview
on Channels Television on Monday, said the assessment was not new.
“Already,
the statement issued few months ago by the Minister of Information and
Culture, Mr Lai Mohammed, in response to the earlier criticism made
against the government by Obasanjo had adequately addressed the issues
raised”.
He
maintained that the APC-led Federal Government would keep making
reference to the failures of the past administration with a view to
guiding against such mistakes in future.

According
to Adesina, the Buhari administration has successfully tackled
mismanagement of the nation’s economy, as Nigeria now has more savings
in its foreign reserve than ever before.
NAN
recalls that the former President had earlier issued a 13-page
statement, criticising Buhari’s performance and concluded that Buhari
should not seek re-election in 2019.
NAN,
however, observed that the Obasanjo’s 13-page statement attracted mixed
reactions from cross sections of Nigerians, including politicians and
opinion leaders from within and outside the country. (NAN)
