While Gbajabiamila was speaking with newsmen at a Town Hall meeting he himself organised on his account of stewardship to the people of his Surulere Federal Constituency in Lagos, he said the empty purse left by Dr Jonathan is why things are difficult for the present government.

In his words, he stated: “Things are very difficult in Nigeria today; we must acknowledge that. The question we need to ask ourselves is why? And the answer is very simple.

“When this government came into power, we knew the situation was bad, we knew the previous government did so much damage to the economy, but, we did not know how bad. “It was when this government got there that they saw the books and they found that everything was empty.

Apart from the falling oil revenue, we have read in the papers how people are being tried for looting the country’s treasury; how people were putting billions meant for terror war in their pockets. “The kind of rot, the kind of corruption Buhari met is unprecedented anywhere in the world. Had the president not taken some of the measures he is taking now, the system would have collapsed completely.”

As Gbajabiamila continued, he said the removal of fuel subsidy was the best, as the country could do anything else. He added that the federal government had no other choice than to take the tough decision, as there was little or nothing left in the nation’s reserve, stating further that FG had no other option than that, because the oil price had gone down drastically.

The leader in the House of Reps urged Nigerians to reason with President Buhari, as they the citizens will benefit in the nearest future from the pump price increase. He also advised the people to give the federal government the needed support in order to make the country great again. He gave the APC-led administration a pass mark since it assumed leadership almost a year ago.

While he did not forget to mention the current anti-graft war of President Buhari, which he said is on course. He spoke on the Boko Haram insurgents. He said they have really been decimated, thereby making Nigeria to have a better perception than it was before.
