President Muhammadu Buhari’s official spokesperson Garba Shehu said this in his piece titled “In Defence of President Buhari: Is This The Change We Voted For? Yes, It Is!”
“When they ask the question, is this the change we voted for, the critic forgets how far we have come from the scam-tainted years of the PDP rule.
“Unfair criticism of the Buhari administration especially on account of escalating prices of foodstuff and the liberalization of the currency exchange needs to be challenged before it overshadows the commendable job the President has done in fighting terrorism as part of overall effort to secure the country, reducing corruption and yes, arresting the economic slide before it sinks the nation.
“The currency liberalization and the deregulation of the petroleum products sale will make President Buhari one of the best presidents till date.
“Victory over Boko Haram has brought peace not only to Nigeria but to the countries in the Lake Chad region.
“As the country hopes for a bumper harvest this year, government is taking steps to ensure that no farmer will sell at a loss or fail to find markets for their harvests. Grain silos are being readied nationwide to receive excess produce for warehousing to ensure food security, avert market glut and price collapse. By this, government will ensure a minimum guaranteed price.”
