By Asaba-ase Stephen

The Governor of Plateau State, Caleb Mutfwang, on Monday, bemoaned the economic hardship Nigerians are faced with and originate the situation on the immediate passed administration led by ex-President Muhammadu Buhari.

While speaking to Congress news on the 4/02/2024, during the swearing-in of 22 Special Advisers and heads of government Departments at the Government House in Jos, Mutfwang said Buhari left the country’s economy in a bad shape for his successor, President Bola Tinubu.

Mutfwang said, “We are at a very terrible point in the history of Nigeria. So i advocate that after the election you forget politics and face governance.

“And even though the Federal Government is being led by a party other than my own, I owe you the duty to tell the masses the truth that this administration inherited a worse situation than 1999.

“This administration inherited an economy where we simply printed money up to the tune of N30tn and shared.

“This government inherited an economy where the crude oil we’re yet to take out of the ground had been sold in advance.

“So, when you’re talking about the fall of the naira, it’s not a rocket science. We sold our future under the last government.

“It is why you are hearing of riots today every where, people intercepting food on the roads. We are lucky on the plateau that we have more food than many other states.

“And I pray that the time will not come for us to experience in Plateau this urgly kind of food crises, but it means we must roll up our sleeves and get to work.

The governor announced plans in his government to set up a special agro-processing zone in the Barkin Ladi Local Government Area in collaboration with the African Development Bank.

He urged the new appointees to brace up and on their thinking cap for the challenges to grace his administration to reverse the terrible situation for the good of the comonwealth.

The governor added, that i tell you that some of the appointees, I don’t know them, but because we want to get things done, we’re looking for the right people.

“Some of them were just introduced to me barely a week or two before the appointment; but because we became convinced that they have the requisite CV to suitable into the position we are looking for, we took them on board.

“And we are confident that with their coming on board, they will add value to governance. So, the most important part is that, I admonish all the advisers to go and look for money.

“Some of the funds will be used for investment and development so that we can generate wealth.

“Those of you in charge of the constituencies, take down whatever government is doing to your constituencies so that together we can move as a people.

“We have suffered enough distraction.

“You know of the killings in Plateau. The time is now to say enough is enough.”

“Efforts to reach the former Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, were futile as he did not take calls to his mobile line as of press time.
