If there’s anything we’ll never ever forget after this administration of the President Muhammadu Buhari, it is all the blaming. Along with recession, the slow response syndrome and #TheOtherRoom.
But the one thing that we will forever remember is their go-to response for every enquiry, complaint, outcry, or anything else really: It is the other people; the past administration. Not us.
This time around, while they aren’t putting any blame on the past administration (and it looks like the Presidency has run out of things to blame on the past administration), they’ve worked out a new method of trying to look good off the last administration.
The Presidency has promised that in grappling with the task of revamping the nation’s economy, President Muhammadu Buhari would not gag the press. They made the promise yesterday, sighting their respect for the freedom of the press, transparency and accountability as anchors for why they should be believed.
Now it didn’t end there. The
senior special adviser to the President on media and publicity. No that will be Mr. Garba Shehu. The special adviser to the President on media and publicity, Femi Adesina went on to share an anecdote with us how the new leader of the State House Press corps, Mr. Ubale Musa, was expelled from the Presidential Villa, Abuja in the twilight of former President Goodluck Jonathan’s administration and that he only had his accreditation restored by the Buhari administration to demonstrate the belief of the administration in freedom of the press.
We guess thanks are in order ?
