President Muhammadu Buhari says some wicked people plundered the country and "kept Nigerians poor".
President Buhari said the damage done to the Nigerian economy in the years of plunder was massive, and that government was doing its best to recover some of the loot, although it was impossible to identify and recover all.
The opposition party also advised President Buhari to inform other world leaders that due to the harsh economic policies and gross incompetence of his administration, "our once robust economy, internationally rated as one of the fasted growing in the world and one of the best investment destinations, collapsed in his hands and went into a recession; that infrastructures are collapsing and that all sectors of public and private lives are now in shambles".
"But Nigerians are still demanding for answers".

"If the All Progressives Congress (APC)-led Federal Government knew all these while that the marauders and insurgents are invaders, then why is it engaging them in dialogue, reportedly paying ransoms and even considering the amnesty option for them. Is it part of governance to pay ransom to invaders?

Ten years ago, President Muhammadu Buhari, who served as the Chairman of the Petroleum Trust Fund (PTF) under the late former military Head of State, Gen. Sanni Abacha denied that his former boss looted the treasury, but his government on Tuesday confirmed the repatriation of Abacha loot.
"This attribute of arrogance, name-calling and intolerance to views as well as disdain for Nigerians by the Buhari administration must stop".
"We are happy that you have declared for 2019".
"The Buhari Presidency ought to know that the London Declaration was an explicit admission of failure by our Commander-In-Chief".
"Our take remains that President Buhari and his dysfunctional APC should simply admit that they have failed to safeguard the lives of our people as well as the territorial integrity of our nation".
The PDP said it "being the party rallying the overwhelming majority of Nigerians today", has a responsibility to stand with the citizens, irrespective of class, creed or ethnicity to hold this failed APC administration accountable for its promises and will continue to put it out glaringly to them ahead of their electoral disgrace in 2019.
Nigeria is at the moment bereft of statutory leadership, including the apparatus of security command, particularly as President Buhari had not indicated a date of return to the country.
