President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday has described the situation of the country as the the making of the past leadership, saying he resumed duty on May, 2015 only to be told by the Central Bank of Nigeria that nothing was left except the debt.
Buhari then said only God will judge in the matter that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) misused the time of surplus the country had in their 16 years of rule.
“Recently, I had to come out and state that from 1999 to 2014, anyone who carries out a study here in America or Europe or India will know that we were producing 2.2 million barrels of crude oil daily at a price of at least $100 per barrel,” the President said in an interview on Voice of America, Hausa service, in Washington, America.
“In those 16 years of the PDP rule, Nigeria was getting 2.1 million times $100 every day, every week, but when we came on board; the price fell to between $37 and $38 and hanged around $40 and $50.
“I went to the CBN – the governor of CBN is here and asked him how far and he said nothing was left apart from debts.
“I said but this is what the country made? And he said yes, he knew, and I asked him where is the money? All is gone.
“Nigerians know that there were no roads or rail lines, there was no power, despite the billions of dollars spent. Only God will judge this thing,” Buhari said.
