The group, in a statement signed by its Chairman Niyi Akinsiju and Secretary Cassidy Madueke, noted that the group’s Director of Publicity and Advocacy, Hakeem Baba-Ahmed had said that Nigerians are regretting electing President Muhammadu Buhari instead of Jonathan in 2015.
“For the avoidance of doubt, we want to state that Hakeem Baba-Ahmed is on a revenge mission because he was not appointed into the administration of President Buhari. It is also common knowledge that he is running errands for his former boss, Bukola Saraki, under whom, as president of the Senate, he served as the chief of staff.
BMO reminded the NEF and its spokesman that in contrast to their position, the Buhari administration has over the last six years rehabilitated a substantial part of the country’s infrastructure. “It has raised the bar in the fight against corruption, as well as become the nightmare of terrorists, bandits and kidnappers.
“We also want to remind the NEF that the country’s economy has rebounded with the various measures already put in place to diversify. Recently the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), which was previously infamous for sleaze and waste, declared profit, and this is unprecedented in the history of the corporation.
