Senator Ben Murry Bruce has called on the President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration to be focused on taking Nigeria out of recession in 2017 rather than focusing on blaming Goodluck Jonathan.
In a live video streamed via the facebook page of Jonathan, the senator said it was a shame that some people were peddling allegation that the former president did no achieve anything.
Ben Bruce highlighted some of the successes of Jonathan and said the focus for 2017 should be on how Nigeria can get out of recession. (we seriously need to .The thing is not funny, lol).
He also said he was ready to provide ideas that can positively affect the nation and called on the current administration to channel its strength towards positive things rather than furthering the blame game.
He said: “In 2016, we placed too much emphasis on blaming the immediate past administration of former president, Goodluck Jonathan.
The blame knew no bounds with some alleging that Jonathan did not achieve anything by way of infrastructure”
1 The railway we now enjoy nationwide including the super-fast 187 kilometre Abuja-Kaduna rail that enables you to work in Abuja and live in Kaduna was built by Jonathan. He also revived the Lagos-Kano rail, the Port Harcourt-Enugu rail and the Markurdi-port Harcourt rail.
2 He raised N58 billion for the victims of terrorism
3 Thanks to Jonathan, there is no Nigerian state without a federal university
4 He also took hundreds of thousands of youths from the streets of northern Nigeria when he built 165 Almajiri schools.
5 One of the major challenges of northern Nigeria is that it is land-locked and Jonathan drive the river Niger up to barrow port in Niger to help industrialize the north.
6 Many youths today own businesses because of the You Win policy of the Jonathan administration that gave 4000 Nigerian youths grant of up to $65000 to start their own businesses.
7 You will appreciate the work he did on the Benin-Ore road and the Lagos-Ibadan expressway.
(and He did nothing for people that gave him 100% votes).
