Ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, on Thursday in Abuja, when he received one of the National Chairmanship position aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Prof. Tunde Adeniran, reportedly said that the President Muhammadu Buhari led government is characterized by lies and propaganda.
Mr. Jonathan who promised that he will someday talk about the achievement of the PDP in its 16 years in power, said that Mr. Babatunde Fashola, the current Minister of Power, when he was governor of Lagos State said that a serious government at the centre must be able to fic power within six months.
Fashola has been Power Minister for over two (2) years and the power situation is Nigeria has been no better but rather worst.
According to the Ex-President, the Buhari’s Government has not done anything since it came to power two years ago.
“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.”
Jonathan noted that for the PDP to stand a chance to oust the APC in 2019, the party would need a competent, reliable and courageous national chairman who would lead the party to victory come 2019.
“The PDP needs a chairman that will select credible and reliable candidates for various elective offices at the various levels of government from the presidency down to the councillorship.
“We need a national chairman who will be courageous enough to caution the President if we win the presidency and the president is going astray, adding that the expectation of the PDP was a national chairman who will rule the party democratically and carry others along.”
