President Muhammadu Buhari says he will keep blaming the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the present state of the country.
He said this at the launch of a pictorial book entitled ‘Buhari a new beginning’ by Bayo Omoboriowo, his photographer, on Friday.
“I’m going to bore you with what we met,” he said.
“I know I’m being accused in the papers of passing the buck, but passing the buck is sometimes absolutely necessary, to remind people who take things for granted.
“The youth must watch our elite, the condition we found ourselves. It is unpatriotic for anybody to pretend that economically we don’t have a problem.
“We have gone into the farms. I congratulate some of the governors and by the grace of God by the end of this government we will be exporting rice and grains. So all the money alleged to have been used to import will be available to sustain development.
“I have bored you with this long explanation because there are things that could be hidden from you by those that have mismanaged the country in the last 16, 17 years.
“I assure you that we will set the ball rolling in terms of security, industrialisation, manufacturing and food security. I said it years ago and I still mean it, we have no other country than Nigeria, we will stay here and salvage it together.”
Buhari urged the youth to support his administration in its fight against corruption, and in its effort to revive the economy.
