Start defending my govt, Buhari tells ministers
President Muhammadu Buhari has charged his ministers to go on the offensive on those peddling falsehood about his administration.
Mr Buhari gave the order yesterday at the two-day ministerial performance review retreat at the presidential villa, Abuja.
“I have charged all of you to defend the government vigorously and not allow any irresponsible and politically motivated statements to keep spreading falsehoods about this government,” Mr Buhari said.
“Information to the public should be better packaged. Go on the offensive, we are proud of our achievements, and we should blow our own trumpet,” he added.
The president who reiterated his call for meetings with him to be channeled through his Chief of Staff, Ibrahim Gambari, said he is been called Baba Go Slow because he has decided to follow the rule of law rather than his dictatorial pathway when he held sway as military head of state.
“Now I’m being called ‘Baba Go Slow’”, he added.
