Politics is about wisdom, not by actions, your govt worsened corruption,chased away investors – Jonathan tells Buhari







Former President Goodluck Jonathan says his
successor, President Muhammadu Buhari, not only worsened the level of
corruption in Nigeria but also chased away investors by de-marketing
Nigeria abroad.





Jonathan added that rather than take
Nigeria to the next level, the Buhari administration decided to engage
in media trials which also worsened the corruption perception of Nigeria
thereby leading to Nigeria’s slip in the Transparency International
Corruption Perception Index.





The former President said this in his recently published book titled, ‘My Transition Hours’.





He said, “The sundry accusations by the new
administration will appear to have baited the media. Media trials are
entertaining but have little or no effect in fighting corruption and
improving the economy.





“Since I left office, rather than improve
on our TI corruption perception record, the situation has worsened with
the nation going 12 places backward, becoming number 148 according to
the latest CPI ranking for 2014, from 136 in 2014 when I was President.





“It was bad enough that Boko Haram
insurgency continued killing people and ruining businesses but what is
worse is when politicians downgrade the economy by de-marketing the
country internationally.”





The former President said the Buhari
administration failed to realise that foreign investors are always very
sensitive to the utterances of the government.





He said in the process of trying to dig a hole for him, the Buhari government ended up digging a hole for the nation.





Jonathan added, “You should never try to
slander your political opponent by destroying your country’s economy.
Capital flight intensified and companies started laying off staff. In
all this, I hope a lesson will be learned. If you embark on digging a
hole for your enemy, you better make it shallow because you might end up
in the hole yourself.





“How do you attract investors you already
repelled through your utterances? Investors are an ultrasensitive lot.
Money runs away from unstable societies.”
