Jonathan responsible for Nigeria woes, Tinubu says

The National Leader of All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has again blamed past civilian administrations for the nation’s economic woes.

Tinubu stated this in his address as the special guest of honour at the 35th annual Aminu Kano Memorial Symposium, held in Kano, on Tuesday.

Tinubu, who was represented by the Governor of Oyo State, Senator Abiola Ajimobi, described the ex-President Goodluck Jonathan-led administration as the worst culprit in the pillaging of the nation’s resources.

Speakers at the event, Publisher of Premium Times, Mr. Dapo Olorunyomi; and a stalwart of the APC, Dr. Usman Bugaje, examined the “Democratic governance in Nigeria and the imperatives of party ideology and supremacy.”

Tinubu attributed the country’s current infrastructural deficit to the billions stolen by the past governments.

He said the APC government had in the past three years been labouring hard to clean the rot and give the people a new lease of life.

The APC leader stated: “The APC government may, at times, be imperfect in fulfilling the spirit of Aminu Kano but we are far from the PDP (Peoples Democratic Party), which has perfected the malign craft of giving selfish ambition primacy over the public good.

“Consequently, the Buhari government has spent inordinate time cleaning the rot and plugging the holes in the corrupt system the others had institutionalised as their strategic policy and national direction.

“The APC has been working to steer our national ship from this awful direction in order that we may bring the people and their welfare into safe harbour.

“Had the billions of dollars and trillions of naira that were stolen by past governments been used for the people, the nation would have been able to acquire the infrastructure and implement the programs that bring greater development and economic justice to all.”
