According to the former president, it is unfair to blame him for the “failure” of President Muhammadu Buhari to inspire confidence in investors within his first six months in office, but I am still not surprise because this government blames everyone including the dead just as late Muammar Gaddafi of Libya was accused of empowering Herdsmen to kills Nigerians.
While reacting to comments made by Garba Shehu, the presidential spokesperson, when he featured on Channels Television earlier on Monday, Ikechukwu Eze, Jonathan’s spokesman said “As strange as that particular assertion may sound, its still beggars’ belief that a spokesman of a President who is seeking re-election would still be looking for a scapegoat for the administration’s failure, at a time he should be showcasing his scorecard. That amounts to merely clutching at straws.
“One thing is as clear as daylight: This government is a government of propaganda, They came with lies just to get peoples vote, the blame virtually everyone for there mistake. The Jonathan administration has absolutely nothing to do with the failure of this government to appoint ministers early enough to inspire confidence in investors because it is obvious that handover notes from a predecessor does not contain the list of ministers for the incoming administration.
Garba Shehu saying that Jonathan directed members of his cabinet not to cooperate with the transition committee and that slowed down Buhari’s Government is laughable and a lie from the pit of hell, he added.
