Founding member of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Prince Tony Momoh, has defended the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari over complaints by Nigerians that the APC-led government has failed to deliver its promised change.
In an exclusive chat with The Guardian yesterday, Momoh explained that many of the challenges weighing heavily on the administration are the result of the monumental “rot we found when we assumed office.”
“Stone us,” Momoh said confidently if within two years the current government fails to reverse the situation.
“Nigerians are complaining of bad roads. But what happened to the several billions of money voted for road construction and rehabilitation under the Jonathan government? If we complain about security challenges, what happened to the billions of dollars voted to fight insurgency, which some people mismanaged, the same with power and other necessary infrastructure?
Ask any of the present ministers. Which of the ministries did not incur serious debts under the immediate past administration? It will surprise you to know that there is none. The new ministers are only scraping the bottom of the pots, struggling with the mergre remnants left by their predecessors, including the huge debts incurred.”
