The Federal Government has said the administration of President Muhammad Buhari would not join issues with former President Olusegun Obasanjo over his comments on the administration.
The special adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, who stated this while responding to former president Obasanjo’s comment in a telephone interview on Channels Television on Monday, said the assessment was not new as such, did not come as a surprise.
“Already, the statement issued few months ago by the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, in response to the earlier criticism made against the government by Obasanjo had adequately addressed the issues raised.”
He maintained that the APC-led federal government would keep making reference to the failures of the past administration with a view to guiding against such mistakes in future.
According to Adesina, the Buhari administration has successfully tackled mismanagement of the nation’s economy, as Nigeria now has more savings in its foreign reserve than ever before.
