Why i said Nigerians to stone Buhari – Tony Momoh

Prince Tony Momoh, former Minister of information, has explained why he asked Nigerians to stone the Mr. Muhammadu Buhari-led government if he failed to carry out.

Momoh had throughout the increase in the 2015 widespread elections referred to Nigerians to stone the APC government in the event that they don’t go away up to expectancies.

The former minister said Nigerians had been already stoning the president despite his monumental achievements.

He said, “We are in a democracy. As Minister of Information, I gave Nigerians information; one, to satisfy your need for information; secondly, to give you the information to do what you like to do with it.

“So, people who are saying that APC has done nothing have a right through the information they have to achieve the aims they want, but that does not reduce from the fact that objectively, APC has done something.

“Whatever happens, I said stone us if we don’t perform, but some people are stoning us, not that we didn’t perform, but because they are in opposition and cannot appreciate that we are performing. In the area of security, nobody would say that we have not tried.

“Nobody will say that the challenges we have in the Northeast, Middle Belt, South-south, Southeast, Southwest and even in the Northwest, are not being attended to. In the area of agriculture, nobody can say that we have not attended to eating what we grow, and growing what we want to eat. We came out of recession. There are a lot of things we have done.”
