Buhari Inaugurates, Sets Agenda For Economic Advisory Council

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has raised the alarm about moves by the presidency to “start conjuring false statistics to cover up for its failures in governance.”

In a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, the main opposition party described as shocking President Muhammadu Buhari’s alleged “resort to discrediting of development statistics from credible independent organisations simply because they exposed the rot and failures of his administration.”

The PDP said that the nation was again “embarrassed when President Buhari directed his newly constituted Presidential Economic Advisory Council as well as the Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs not to work with statistics from independent agencies, but to rely only on self-sourced data.”
