Senator George Akume, Minister of Special Duties and Intergovernmental Affairs, said that anyone who criticizes the administration led by President Muhammadu Buhari has a “sinister motive.”
According to Akume, speaking with journalists in Abuja on Thursday, the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has ruined Nigeria’s economy and pillaged funds to improve security and electricity.
The former governor of the Benue State also said that Buhari worked tirelessly to get the nation on the right track.
“When people talk so much about this government negatively, I believe they have sinister motive and purpose.
“Sincerely, they are no angels in government but there is a big difference between what was and what is.
“The system was bad when this government came on board in 2015. And at the time we came, virtually all sector of the economy had broken down. There was serious security breaches.
“You can testify that a lot has been done by this government to stem the tide of insecurity.
“When I was in the Senate, I happened to be a member of the committee on defence, we visited the North East and virtually everything was bad,” Akume said.
