Jonathan left “no money in the treasury”- Buhari
President Muhammadu Buhari has again stressed that ex-President Goodluck Jonathan left an empty treasury for him.
He added that the fall in oil prices compounded the problem, which eventually landed the country’s economy in recession.
The President stated this on Thursday, January 12, while receiving recipients of the 2016 Nigerian National Order of Merit (NNOM) at the State House, Abuja.
“There was no money in the treasury,” adding that “we were producing less than one million barrels of oil per day, from the 2.2 million barrels we used to do. The country was in a terrible shape, but luckily, the
people understand, and are cooperating with us.”
