Buhari put the blames of ‘near destruction of Nigeria’ on Obasanjo, Yar’Adua, Jonathan

Newsie Events:-
President Muhammadu Buhari has in his independence day message to Nigerians, put the blames of woes bedeviling the nation on the past leaders that managed its affairs since the current democratic dispensation.
Buhari said, “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.”
Even though the president did not mention the leaders by name, but he specifically referred to those who ‘presided over’ Nigeria between 1999 and 2015, questioning how such leaders had the ‘impudence’ to criticize his administration.
Nigeria’s presidents since 1999 are Olusegun Obasanjo (1999 to 2007), late Umaru Yar’Adua (2007 to 2010), and Goodluck Jonathan (2010 to 2015).
Buhari’s reaction on Thursday was the first since former President Obasanjo’s latest criticism of his government.
Recall that NEWSIE EVENTS reported how Mr. Obasanjo lamented on the worsening security and economic situation in the country, blaming Mr. Buhari’s government for it.
“Nigeria is fast drifting to a failed and badly divided state; economically our country is becoming a basket case and poverty capital of the world, and socially, we are firming up as an unwholesome and insecure country,” Mr. Obasanjo said.
His stance was supported by many Nigerians including Nobel Laureate Wole Soyinka.
However, Mr. Buhari’s aides including presidential spokesman Garba Shehu and information minister Lai Mohammed attacked Mr. Obasanjo for the statement.
