‘Buhari’s Blatant And Provocative Lie. He’s Leaving Nigeria Worse Off On The Economy And Security’ – Omokri

Buhari, Jonathan

On May 29, 2015, when President Goodluck Jonathan handed over the Presidency of Nigeria to General Buhari, the nation’s Gross Domestic Product was $509.9.


In 2023, as General Buhari hands over the Presidency to Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, the country’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) has dropped to an estimated $450 billion, an almost 10 percent depreciation.

From the above, General Buhari’s statement in his so-called farewell broadcast to the nation, in which he said, “I am confident that I am leaving office with Nigeria better in 2023 than in 2015″, is a very provocative and blatant lie.

In 2015, we only had a national security threat from Boko Haram. Today, we have national existential threats from Boko Haram, bandits; and unknown gunmen, amongst others.

In 2015, the Naira was ₦199 to $1. Today, it is ₦750 to $1. In 2015, our total foreign debt was $10.7 billion. Today, it is almost $50 billion.

In 2015, Nigeria was 136 in Transparency International’s Corruption Perception Index. In 2023, we are 150.


So, precisely in what area of our national life has Buhari made ‘Nigeria better in 2023 than in 2015’?

The only thing we can now say to General Buhari is that you were a mistake, and may you go and may your like NEVER return to power to afflict us again. In Yeshua’s Name, I pray.
