Jonathan to Buhari: You can’t blame me for your failures

Former President Goodluck Jonathan has said his administration has nothing to do with the failures of the Buhari led government, and has asked President Muhammadu Buhari to look elsewhere for who to blame.

The former president was reacting to a statement by the senior special assistant to the president on media and publicity, Garba Shehu, blaming him for the failure of Mr Buhari to appoint ministers in the first six months of assuming power.

The president, who was sworn in on May 29, 2015, did not appoint members of his cabinet until six months after he began his administration, which was criticised by many.

Speaking on Channel TV’s Sunrise Daily on Monday, Mr Shehu claimed the delay was caused by the failure of Mr Jonathan to cooperate with the transition committee.

However, Mr Jonathan, in a statement by his spokesperson, Ikechukwu Eze, said it is strange that the president is still looking for who to blame, three years after.

“One thing is as clear as daylight: 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.”

Mr Eze said Mr Jonathan handed over the necessary document(s), which Mr Buhari received, ahead of his inauguration.
