Chairman, House Committee on Public Petitions, Uzoma Nkem-Abonta, has challenged President Muhammadu Buhari to publish the hand-over notes of former President Jonathan to enable Nigerians properly assess the situation on ground.
Nkem-Abonta was reacting to the claim by President Buhari that Jonathan left nothing for his government in the treasury.
The lawmaker in a statement said, “This government actually needs all hands on deck to move Nigeria from recession.
“There is no doubt we must double-leap to beat recession and we must primarily focus on food production. If I may ask, are there no PDP members helping to run the affairs of this government?
“Half of APC governors had worn PDP shirts, are they not part of this administration?
“PDP had rule of law and, to some extent, good governors. I agree that there is no house without mosquitoes but there must be ability to manage the mosquitoes not to cause malaria.
“GEJ was definitely a better manager of mosquitoes as he made sure we did not go into recession. If we must get out of this nightmare, then we must rally round Buhari now to get the desired results.
“Blaming PDP for these woes will not solve anything because it’s like blaming a goalkeeper without attack and defence.
“Dollar was stabilised for five years at N150 and to get out of this doldrums, we must have an economic summit to look inward and focus on agriculture to get us out of recession.”
