The Presidency on Friday dismissed the insinuations by former President Goodluck Jonathan that the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari is full of lies and propaganda and has achieved nothing since the inception of his administration.
Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina in a tweet on his twitter handle@ FemAdesina, said Nigerians trust the administration of Buhari when compared to that of former president.
Recall that former President Goodluck Jonathan, when he received a chairmanship aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party, Tunde Adeniran, said that the All Progressives Congress has not done anything since it assumed power.
He said “The PDP administration for 16 years did well and will continue to do well. But this administration has done nothing. They deployed propaganda and lies at a professional level,”
“In the power sector, we did well to revive it. A state governor attacked our government, saying that any serious government should be able to fix the power challenge within six months.
“Today, APC has been in power for how many years now? Fortunately the then governor is in the APC government as a minister.”
M. Jonathan was alluding to the Minister of Works, Power and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, who was the governor of Lagos State when Mr. Jonathan was president.
But Adesina in his tweet, said when the federal government increased the pump price of fuel to as high as N145, Nigerians accepted it in good faith.
According to him, this was antithetical to the situation when the country was shut down in 2012 after Jonathan’s administration did the same thing.
He said trust was the underlying factor between the reactions of Nigerians to the two situations.
“When petrol went to N145 under PMB, Nigerians held their peace unlike when they shut the country in 2012.”
The difference is trust. Simple,” he tweeted.
