He said: You looted, you wasted our money. We will keep talking about it’’ and explained that the former ruling People’s Democratic Party (PDP) wasted the nation’s resources when production was at maximum.

He explained that there is a difference between PDP’s administration and that of APC.

Thanking Nigerians for their patience with the administration, Tinubu said: “I am happy that President Buhari has saved the ship from wreckage.’’

“We are re-directing Nigeria. We have a nation to rescue and thank God we have a good leader to emulate.’’

He advised the private sector to introduce credit system into the economy to discourage corruption.

Tinubu assured the people that Buhari was working toward prosperity and banishing poverty.

He said that there is no nation without its challenges.

He said that the challenges would be surmounted because Nigeria is “focused against corruption, terrorism and is committed to economic revival.’’

The government’s investment on people could be seen as a matter of reality. “I can see what the government is doing with the little it has. They are diversifying in practical terms to get our country out of corruption and poverty’’.

Apparently referring to the opposition, he said: “They say we should not talk about the past. If we do not talk about it what else can we talk about?’’
