Former governor of the old Kaduna State, Alhaji Balarabe Musa and the National Vice-Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (South-East), Chief Emma Eneukwu have adjudged the government of the immediate past President, Goodluck Jonathan as a disaster which he left for the present Muhammadu Buhari government.
Balarabe Musa, who was reacting to claim by ex President Jonathan that his government provided focused leadership for the country said that the past PDP governments, including that of Jonathan, played on Nigerians’ short memories.
the former Kaduna governor described Jonathan’s handling of the economy as worse, saying: “of course, Nigerians have short memories. What is our attitude to all the former presidents, particularly as to how they handled our economy?
“We seem not to have realized that they did less than the present. They are now heroes in a way. They are almost now gloating and trying to decide the fate of the country.
“The ex-President is not only to blame for our failures, his own was even worse. In the present, we have seen competence in a few things, but in his own (Jonathan) case, he showed competence in nothing. He allowed corruption to fester during his own time.”
On his own, Chief Eneokwusi accused the former President of throwing the country into a mess, adding: “even a blind man in Nigeria knows that (Goodluck) Jonathan threw this country into a mess. Billions and billions of naira are being refunded and found in private houses. Is the money not being refunded by people who served under Jonathan?
“The man shouldn’t talk, he should bury his head in shame; his administration is almost the worst I can think of. He never checked people who worked under him; it was free-for-all corruption.”[myad]
