President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday said part of the importance of his administration’s scorecard series was to create a fairly reliable historical record as it was a nearly contemporaneous record of what transpired in his eight-year term.
He explained this in Abuja during the unveiling of ‘Preserving President Muhammadu Buhari Legacy’.
Buhari, represented by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, said: “This detailed record, even though some will argue is the biased view of active participants in the matters being recorded, will nevertheless provide very useful source materials for researchers and historians in the future whether they are for or against our administration.”
He said the records being kept in many different forms such as visual and documented would help to reinforce their accuracy and authenticity.
The Minister for Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, said the essence of the scorecard series was to provide a counter to the choreographed pushback by the opposition and the naysayers who said the Buhari Administration had achieved nothing.
He said the series also provided campaign materials for the All Progressive Congress (APC) and its candidates in the run-up to the 2023 general elections.
