Media Office of Ex-President Goodluck Jonathan has described the APC government of President Muhammadu Buhari as a failure.
He disclosed this while accusing the federal government and the Special Assistant to President Buhari on Media, Femi Adesina of peddling falsehood over claims that Nigerians did not protest the hike in fuel price by the Buhari government because they trusted the government.
In reaction to Adesina and the Nigerian government, over the claims, Jonathan’s Media Office said fear, not trust was why Nigerians did not protest in mass against fuel price hike under Buhari.
“When Femi Adesina says that it is because of trust Nigerians did not rise up against the Buhari administration when it increased the pump price of petrol from
N87 to N145, he betarys a deep ignorance and arrogance.
“First of all, it was not Nigerians that rose up again the Jonathan administration when that government increased the price of petrol on January 1, 2012. it was actually members of the All Progressive Congress who sponsored the protests,” sald the statement signed by Reno Omokri on behalf of the Jonathan Media Office.
The statement said Nigerians had not so soon forgotten how Malam Nasir El-Rufai led other chieftains of the opposition to the Gani Fawehinmi, Freedom Park, Ojota, Lagos, where they attracted crowds by inviting top musician to perform and by giving out free food and drinks.
It continued: “On December 15, 2015, the Nigerian Army, under president Muhammadu Buhari’s command, killed 347 unarmed Shiite man women, children and infants and buried them in a mass grave as revealed by the panel of inquiry instituted Kaduna State government.
