President Muhammadu Buhari has emphasised the need for the government and all Nigerians to take tough decisions for Nigeria to survive.
He made this known in his Independence Day speech during a nationwide broadcast on Thursday.
The President noted that national resources had reduced drastically than previous administrations had to work with, adding his administration has been doing much with a very small budget.
He, however fired back at leaders in past administrations who had in recent times jeered him and his administration for decisions and actions being taken, blaming them for almost grinding and nation to a halt.
“No government in the past did what we are doing with such scarce resources. We have managed to keep things going inspite of the disproportionate spending on security. Those in the previous Governments from 1999 – 2015 who presided over the near destruction of the country have now the impudence to attempt to criticize our efforts.” He said.
