The Minister of Communication, Adebayo Shittu, has dismissed the critics of President Muhammadu Buhari, calling them agents of falsehood. Shittu who is at the forefront of the Buhari reelection campaign in the South West explained that his flag-off of the reelection campaign was borne out of the need to publicise the achievements of the president.
“We only pity people who do not see what we have done”, Shittu said. He made a wild, unsubstantiated claim that the Buhari-led APC government has performed more in two years than the PDP government did in 16 years. He said:
“Again we tried to use that occasion to publicise some of the achievements of Mr. President. Over the last one or two years, a number of PDP apologists have continued to engage in misrepresentations and falsehood against the government, especially in the area of performance and achievements.
“And we thought it was fit for us to itemize the achievements of the government, which is what we said and we continue to say it that what the Muhammadu Buhari-led APC government has done in two years, the PDP governments did not achieve in 16 years.
“If you look at the last election for example, he (President Buhari) did not have access to all the monies that the sitting President had at that time and, yet, he emerged victorious.
“That should convince anybody that his emergence is an act of God to take Nigeria to where it should be.”
