Minister of Justice and Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami (SAN) has said critics of the President Muhammadu Buhari administration must cast their minds back to where the country was before the All Progressives Congress (APC) “seized power” in 2015. 
Malami said the present administration has performed more than critics of the government are presenting its scorecard to the public. 
The Buhari administration is receiving heaving bashing from different quarters over the alleged spate of insecurity, poverty, corruption, hunger,  increase in petroleum pump price, lack of good infrastructure among others.  
But addressing some members of the APC National Executive Committee (NEC) on Wednesday, in Abuja, Malami said the allegations of the opposition on the state of insecurity was superficial.
“If you talk of security, notwithstanding the noise that they make all over the place that we have not succeeded, there is no justification to that allegation made by the opposition. 
“This is a government that came at a time when indeed about 17 local governments across the nation were in the hands of the Boko Haram. This government has succeeded in reclaiming the territories.
“Not only reclaiming the territories in question but this is a government that came into place at a time when Boko Haram  could travel right from Sambisa down to Kano cause lots of deaths and destruction of properties.
“Our party has not done too bad. We have great and good stories to tell and that can be established factually and not out of mere rythorics. 
“When you talk of empowerment we have not done too bad, we have indeed a lot to establish the fact that we have done unprecedently well as far as empowerment and social investments are concerned. 
“When in 2018, we have course to recover about 322 million US dollars from Switzerland, Mr. President committed himself to support of those that are less privileged, those that are indigent and arising therefore, we have in place N-power program, which indeed constituted the source of support for the unemployed graduates, we have in place school feeding program which indeed was targeted at providing meals for the pupils at the primary and perhaps secondary schools level. 
“In terms of infrastructures, this government has done much as well. This government has completed the projects that were there in the last 16 years ago; that were budgeted for year in year out without any meaningful progress,” Malami said. 
The minister assured the APC NEC members under the aegis of Integrity Group that with the present Caretaker/Extraordinary National Convention Planning Committee, the party would institute reward system that was lack as demanded by the group led by Sadiq Abubakar.
