2019: They call me ‘baba-go-slow,’ but watched PDP misrule for 16 years – Buhari fires at critics


President Muhammadu Buhari has said that he had been called “Baba go slow” meanwhile Nigerians elites never spoke of the misrule of the country by the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, for 16 years.

According to Buhari, while the elite allowed the country to be mismanaged in 16 years without raising a voice in consternation, they have been accusing him of being too slow in decision making.

Buhari queried what those that were considered to be fast achieved.

This was part of a statement made available to DAILY POST on Friday by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina.
