Buhari Attacks Obasanjo, PDP Again
President Muhammadu Buhari has again blamed the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for Nigeria's woes.
At a meeting with the leadership of the organised labour on Thursday, the President insisted that the PDP still owed Nigerians explanation on how it expended the humongous resources that accrued to the country from oil sales between 1999 and 2014.
Leaders of the organised labour had met with him at the State House Abuja to felicitate with him on his electoral victory.
While addressing them, President Buhari said his administration met a country with dilapidated infrastructure all round in 2015 and insisted that the situation calls to serious question what the party that was in power for 16 years did with the country's earnings from oil, which reached a peak during the period.
"PDP has not successfully explained to the country what they did with the money," President Buhari said.
"There were no roads, no rail, no power.
"They said they spent $16 billion on power, but where is the power?
"The irresponsible expenditure of that period has not been explained, and Nigerians deserve an answer on that terrible mismanagement of the country," the president added.
It is the second time in few months that the President will be mentioning the power expenses, with questions.
He had the last time given an indication the he would probe how the $16 billion was spent on power without Nigerians having constant light to show for it.
That amount was allegedly spent during the administration of Dr. Olusegun Obasanjo.
