1 min


 

Weetalknaija Daily Post report that, Nigeria’s President, Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday said Nigerian elites should stop calling him “Baba go slow” and judge his administration with fairness.

Weetalknaija Daily Post understands that, the President was speaking at the closing of the first-year ministerial performance review retreat held in Abuja.

“I want the Nigerian elites, please encourage them, to judge us fairly,” Buhari said, arguing that his administration has done more for the country with less resources.

He said the average production of oil in the country, from 1999 to 2014, was 2.1 million barrels per day sold at an average price of $100.

“When we came, it collapsed to $37, $38 per barrel, you know it. And the militants were unleashed on the administration, and the production went down to half a million barrels per day.

“I want you to please reflect, what was the condition of the infrastructure then, in spite of those earnings. The roads, the rail is dead and there was no power, up till now no power; where does the money go?”

The President said he was “doing my best” to fight corruption by “trying to follow the system” in contrast to his brief military regime in 1984 when he arbitrarily rounded up politicians, threw them in jail, and required them to prove their innocence.
