President Muhammadu Buhari has asked that elites who criticise his government to be fair to him.
He said comparing where things were in the past and how they’re now will provide a true picture.
He said though there are problems, his government will continue to do its best.
He said this on Thursday while playing host to Reverend Yakubu Pam, Executive Secretary of the Nigerian Christians Pilgrims Commission.
On security, he said, “What was the situation when we came? Try and ask people from Borno or from Adamawa for that matter and Yobe.
“What was the condition before we came and what is the condition now? Still, there are problems in Borno and Yobe, there are occasional Boko Haram problems, but they know the difference because a lot of them moved out of their states and moved to Kaduna, Kano and here (in Abuja).
“We were not spared of the attacks at a time. The government is doing its best and I hope that eventually, our best will be good enough.”
He asked that they be fair.
“Those criticising the administration should be fair in terms of reflecting on where we were before we came, where we are now and what resources are available to us and what we have done with the limited resources,” Buhari said.
“We had to struggle paying debts, investing in road repairs and rebuilding, to revamp the rail and try to get power. This is what I hope the elite, when they want to criticise will use to compare notes.”
