President Muhammadu Buhari has said that he is disappointed in the Nigerian press.
He said his grouse was that the media did not give his administration the credit for the agricultural revolution he said was ongoing in the country. Buhari spoke while hosting some young political appointees to a dinner at the Presidential Villa, Abuja last night.
“I’m very disappointed in the Nigerian press. They didn’t give this government the credit of the “Go back to the land” programme. We have cut down the importation of rice by at least 90 per cent,” the President said. Buhari further noted that many Nigerians were abandoning white collar jobs daily and embracing farming because of his government’s reform programme in the sector.
The Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha, claimed that the PDP didn’t achieve one-tenth of theAPC achievements in its 16 years in power.
While saying that the present administration had achieved so much, Mustapha promised to make available a document which he said captured what the government had been able to achieve in less than four years.
