Five Years Of PMB: Nigeria Would Have Been History Without President Buhari – Femi Adesina

A presidential spokesman, Femi Adesina said Nigeria would have long been forgotten had President Muhammadu Buhari not taken over from incumbent Goodluck Jonathan of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on May 29, 2015.

Adesina stated this in an article titled “Five years of PMB: We’re glad he came our way”, to commemorate Buhari who marked the end of his first year of the second term and fifth year in office today, May 29, 2020.

In the article, Adesina said Nigeria was a failed state until Buhari came along to save the nation’s downfall into oblivion by fighting insecurity, rabid corruption and devastated economy. He said:

“When he rode triumphantly to power in 2015, the average Nigerian was tired of the state of the country. Massive looting of the treasury by the party in government, and no one was being called to order, because there was no moral will to do it.

“Terrible insecurity in the country, with at least 17 local governments already annexed in the North-east of the country by insurgents.

“They had planted flags of a funny type of caliphate, and were sitting in palaces of the emirs, who had shown clean pairs of heels.”

Adesina said the coming of Buhari was the game changer, pointing out the President has reignited hope in the nation.

“For despite it all, things are not the way they used to be. The descent into abyss has been checked, arrested, and things are looking up.

“Despite the looming Incubus of another recession, the government continues to work, fulfilling its obligations to the country,” he stressed.

Giving a hint into what has changed in the country, the presidential aide said:

“A directive has been given to fund the first phase of the Presidential Power Initiative, being done in collaboration with Siemens of Germany.

“Work on the Second Niger Bridge is not stalled, road projects are to restart as the economy reopens gradually, and salaries and pensions are being paid. Promise made, and promise being kept.”

He urged Nigerians to “count our blessings as a country, instead of dwelling on things that have not been done,” insisting “no government accomplishes everything begging for attention in a country.”

According to him, Nigeria is “doing a lot more with a lot less income. Things we couldn’t do when oil prices stabilised at average of 100 dollars per barrel for a long time, are now being accomplished. We’re glad this President came our way.”

This is coming just two days after Femi Adesina said Nigerians are lucky to have a President like Buhari who is leading well at a time like this.
