The Buhari Media Organisation has faulted former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar’s claim that President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration took more loans in the last three years than the preceding 30 years.
The group said the claim by the Peoples Democratic Party’s presidential candidate in the 2019 general elections was a mixture of outright lies and conjectures.
In a statement signed by its Chairman, Niyi Akinsiju, and Secretary, Cassidy Madueke, the group said Atiku had a penchant for twisting facts for political expediency.
It cautioned the former Vice-President to always check his facts and figures before going public. This, the group said, was the least expected from a man of his status.
The BMO accused Atiku of hiding under the banner of Prof. Anya O. Anya of the Nigeria Economic Summit Group to add credibility to a false narrative on the country’s debt profile. It said, “We are alarmed that a personality of the calibre of a former Vice-President would go to the extent of playing up unverified information at a forum like that of a university, even if he owns the institution.
