President Muhammadu Buhari’ s Independence Day broadcast has been greeted with wide criticisms as Nigerians react.
The Nigerian President’ s speech on Friday had appeared well prepared until it reaches the part where the president boasted that ” no government since the transition to democratic rule in 1999, has done what his administration has done in six years” .
” This is a slap in the face for Nigeria’ s former presidents: Olusegun Obasanjo, Umaru Yar’ Adua and Goodluck Jonathan who were his predecessors, ” Nigerians opined.
Buhari’ s remarks have stirred reactions as Nigerians castigate, calling his administration out on social media.
President Buhari said; ” Since coming to power, this administration has tackled our problems head- on in spite of the meagre resources.
” No government since 1999 has done what we have done in six years to put Nigeria back on track.
” We shall continue to serve the country: listen to all and protect our democracy and country” .
