Ex-President Goodluck Jonathan has taken President Muhammadu Buhari to the cleaners over the allegations made by his spokesman, Mallam Garba Shehu that the president’s five month delay in forming the federal cabinet was caused by him.
Jonathan through his media adviser, Ikechukwu Eze, said;
“Assuming, without conceding, that the last administration was as bad as they want Nigerians to believe, is it not a fact of governance that it is the duty of every responsible administration to seek to make better the situation it met on ground? Anything less than that is a proof of incompetence for which a failed administration has no moral justification to ask for a fresh mandate.”
“While members of the current administration continue to blame President Jonathan for their failure to deliver on their mandate, they should be reminded that there are many African success stories that proved that a progress-minded administration has no business focusing only on the past.”
