The Presidency has said that cleaning the mess the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) left the country in is not as easy task.
The comment was made by President Muhammadu Buhari’s media aide, Femi Adesina in response to a statement released by PDP National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh in which he described the first 30 days of the new administration as a period of all motion and no movement.
Adesina’s response was contained in a statement released on Sunday, June 28, 2015.
It reads in part:
“The Buhari administration is naturally contemplative because there was absolutely no rhyme or reason to the way PDP ran the country, particularly in the immediate past dispensation.”
“That is why the Augean Stable is being cleaned now, and it requires scrupulous and painstaking planning. Across all sectors, our national life was devalued, and it takes meticulousness and sure-footedness to repair all the breaches. This, the Buhari administration will deliver.”
“In the process of time, after all that is being planned by the current administration has matured, and bearing fruits, Nigerians will be able to determine who is serving them acceptably, and who has taken them for a ride. It is just a matter of time.”
“Meanwhile, Metuh and his masters can only rue the missed opportunities to make salutary impact on the lives of Nigerians. They have a long road of regrets to travel.”
Metuh had earlier accused Buhari of being full of excuses and urged him to instead focus on governance.
