‘Day of accountability is coming’
The Former Vice president of Nigeria, Atiku Abubakar, has written to Mr president, Muhammadu Buhari, noted that he doesn’t understand what COVID-19 entails but dogmatic in actions.
“A very strong one. We have a president who doesn’t even understand what COVID-19 entails”, he said.
Atiku tweeted the statement recently on his Twitter page after some Nigerians said that Nigeria is obviously copying other countries as regard lockdown.
“Nigeria saw the rest of the world enforcing a lockdown and decided to enforce a lockdown with no clear plans.
“And then when the rest of the world is easing their lockdown, Nigeria also joins to ease the lockdown. Ask the Government the reason for both actions and they don’t know”, the tweets stated.
Recall that the Covid-19 Presidential Task Force, headed by Boss Mustapha, started the easing of national-wide lockdown on May 4th, continued after two weeks, however, recently, the ban on worship places has been lifted in June.
According to record, Covid-19 outbreak in Nigeria started late February by an Italy man, however, the Federal government enforced the lockdown on March 31st.
Following reactions, many have opinionated that If the rest of the world stop having cases, Nigeria will also stop having Coronavirus cases.
Contrary, some stated that If the critics watched the Presidential Task Force (PTF) briefings, the comments won’t be stated.
“However, our leaders are not dummies”, the tweets reported.
Relatively, the critics added that the country is copying others in peace.
Meanwhile, some said that they see no sense in opening religious institutions while we continue to keep students at home. After all, the lockdown started when there were fewer cases and easing lockdown now when there are over 10k confirmed cases in the country.
“It doesn’t make any sense. Nigeria government and copycat”, the tweets castigated.
Speaking on accountability, Atiku disclosed that account day is coming as the Federal government has over-borrowed without showing positive results.
“Can anyone point a finger at projects Buhari and APC used the staggering of $55bn [₦21trn] that was recovered by Trobbel, an oil and gas consultancy firm between 2015-2017 when Nigeria’s economy was struggling under Buhari and the APC?
“Did you know that due to the inhumane level of looting under the #Buhari & #APC government, Nigeria is currently broke, borrowing billions of dollars, like mad people, to finance consumption and for payment of salaries of workers?
“Did you know that even with the $55bn recovery between 2015-2017, within 3 months, March – April 2020, Buhari and the APC still borrowed over $30bn [₦11.6trn] with nothing to show for it? This excludes the hundreds of millions of dollars recovered from Abacha’s loot”, Atiku painfully lamented.
