In a Nationwide broadcast to mark the 60th Independence Anniversary of Nigeria as a Nation, President Buhari stated that no government in the past did what his present regime is doing with scarce resources.
He particularly mentioned the regimes as the tenure between 1999- 2015, which was ruled by Former President Olusegun Obasanjo, late Umar Yaradua and former President Goodluck Jonathan.
“No government in the past did what we are doing with such scarce resources.
“We have managed to keep things going in spite of the disproportionate spending on security.
“Those in the previous governments from 1999 – 2015 who presided over the near destruction of the country have now the impudence to attempt to criticise our efforts.
“In the circumstances, a responsible government must face realities and take tough decisions.”
