Buhari gives self pass mark, says ''We've not done too badly

President Muhammadu Buhari yesterday bemoaned the looting of the treasury by past administrations, saying the stealing was too much.

He, however, commended Nigerians who are in the diaspora defending the country, stressing that they have shown courage and sacrifice.

We urge President Buhari to resist the temptation of seeking to impress world leaders with false performance indices, but should present the real situation, particularly the pitiable state of our economy, escalated insecurity, human rights abuses, daily bloodletting, persecution of opposition and erosion of democratic values in the last three years.

"If he has done well or he has not done badly as he claimed, let him point to a single project he initiated and completed in three years".

The meeting comes weeks after Rex Tillerson, then USA secretary of state, visited Nigeria and other African countries in March only to be fired after his return to Washington.

He blamed past leaders for failing to capitalise on the nations resources, thereby keeping Nigerians poor.

Bartolo Colon Loses Perfect Game In Eighth Inning
Colon finally lost the flawless game when he walked Astros' young star Carlos Correa to lead off the bottom of the eighth. Colon finished the game with a line of 7.2 innings pitched, seven strikeouts, one hit, one walk and one earned run.


Reacting, the spokesman for the CNM, Mr. Akin Osuntokun, said this during an interview with one of our correspondents on Sunday.

He said, "He has never displayed competence in the area of governance".

"The relationship of the United States with Nigeria is deep and strong, and Nigeria's economic growth, security, and leadership in Africa will advance our mutual prosperity", the statement said.

President Buhari should not forget to inform CHOGM that back home, there is a national indignation and general vote of no confidence against his administration for its abysmal performance and failure to fulfill the littlest in the long list of bogus promises they made during the 2015 Presidential campaign. "This is the same President who indicted his own government when he revealed that the Inspector-General of Police failed to relocate to Benue to curb a crisis as commanded". The energy the government is dissipating on castigating previous governments can be deployed in reorganising the country.

The presidential aide had at that time stated that Buhari was due to hold discussions on Nigeria-British relations with Prime Minister Mrs Theresa May.

He also said that the event was also organised to pray for the restoration of peace and tranquility in the country, adding that prayer was the solution to all challenges facing the country.
