the Presidency on Saturday said it would not stop looking back and referring to “colossal atrocities in the management and disbursement of public funds” experienced during the past administration.
It said it was a mere wishful thinking to believe that Nigerians would forget such atrocities in a hurry.
The Senior Special Assistant to the Vice-President on Media and Publicity, Mr. Laolu Akande, said these in a statement.
Akande said Nigerians had not forgotten the “severe damage caused the economy by the rampant abuse of public trust and grand larceny”that he claimed characterised the past administration.
He said, “Those who are asking our people to simply forget the blatant violation of public trust and the pillaging of the nation’s commonwealth witnessed in the past are saying wittingly or otherwise that we should forget where the shoe actually pinched and pretend as if the social raping of the nation never occurred.”
