Blame PDP For Your Crisis, Not Me – Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday in Abuja said that the 16 years’ rule of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) failed to plan for Nigeria’s raining day despite high revenue from oil during the period.

The Nation reports that he spoke at the Presidential Villa while receiving the President of the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO), Dr Bernard O. Aliyu.
For the greater part of the last 16 years, he noted that Nigeria’s oil was sold above $100 per barrel.
Buhari, in a statement by the Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, however regretted that Nigeria did not have much to show for the high revenue.
He said: “In the First Republic, more enduring infrastructure was built with meagre resources. But in the past 16 years, we made a lot of money without planning for the rainy day. ‘’Blame PDPD and the past administration for your woes, not me or my party’’, he said
“We showed a lot of indiscipline in managing our economy, and that is why we are where we are today. But this time round, we’ll do our best.” He added. Click Here to Download Our Android App
