The Buhari Media Organization (BMO), a media arm of President Muhammadu Buhari’s Campaign, on Monday said that President Buhari has recorded landmark achievements within short period of time compared to past leaders who had governed the country.
The organization said this in a statement sent to the News Agency of Nigeria, NAN, by its Chairman, Austin Braimoh in Abuja.
Braimoh, while reacting to remarks from the reformed All Progressives Congress (r-APC) that Buhari’s administration was a failure explained that Buhari’s government had succeeded where past leaders failed.
The group’s chairman said Buhari has embarked on unprecedented projects and policy moves that are reforming Nigeria and delivering on the promises he made.
“Contrary to the puerile remarks by the assembly of desperados, otherwise known as r-APC, apparently in desperation to justify their plans to exit the ruling All Progressives Congress.
“As they look to ingratiate their personal selfish agenda, we direct their attention to the fact that the Buhari administration is currently feeding over 8 million primary school children across the country.
“It is fixing and constructing roads in their hundreds across the country, transforming the Second Niger Bridge from mere political campaign tool as used by previous administrations to a reality.
“Buba Galadima cannot stay in his Abuja residence, out of touch with the remarkable developments across the country and without evaluation, utter such puerile remarks,” he explained.
The BMO chairman said that it was unfortunate and profoundly insulting that the ‘renegade group’ led by Galadima compared Buhari’s three years’ administration to that of the previous failures in the past 16 years.
“We assert that it is evident that Mr Galadima is a man blinded by passion of hatred borne out of his inability to realise his base material aspirations in the Buhari administration.
“He refuses to acknowledge and comprehend the quantum of challenges and work on ground for the Buhari administration to fix,” he said.
Braimoh wondered if any government in the past had recovered the quantum of stolen loots as recorded under the Buhari administration.
According to him, the Anchor Borrowers Programme of the Buhari administration has been giving loans to farmers engaged in rice and wheat farming where over 250,000 farmers have benefited.
He added that it had led to historical high production in local food crops and particularly setting the country on the path of rice sufficiency.
“If governments in the past had been this sincere in transforming the lives of Nigerians and invested half as much in the Nigerian people as the Buhari administration is doing, Nigeria would by now have developed characteristics very much like the proverbial Eldorado,” he said.
