E-X-P-O-S-E-D!!! EMPTY TREASURY: Buhari Stop Misleading Nigerians: Jonathan Left Over $30Billion – Dr. Abubakar Sulaiman.
**$600,000,000 have been spent from our Reserve within one week by Buhari’s Govt.
**Buhari bought customised S600 Maybach Mercedes official car valued about N500,000,000, and other cars in that range.
**APC Transition Committee members stays in Transcorp Hotel at N500,000 and N350,000 a night, but Jonathan advised his own Team to be coming from their Abuja homes to save cost.
Nigerian were horrified by President Muhammadu Buhari’s recent claims of inheriting an empty treasury, from the Jonathan’s administration after they have initially acknowledged a balance of over $30Billion.
Dr. Abubakar Sulaiman, a former Minister and Deputy Chairman National Planning Commission (NPC) in a statement, described the Buhari and APC’s statement as baseless report as “unscientific and unfair”, stressing that the immediate past administration “left behind close to US$30billion.”
Dr. Sulaiman added that, “Buhari’s Government can’t tell us that there is no Excess Crude Account(ECA), Sovereign Wealth Fund(SWF) or In addition to the above $30billion, are they saying the Federal Inland Revenue Service(FIR) and related agencies had not in the last one month been generating revenue?
“Until they are able to prove they had no receipts from these government agencies in the last one month, Nigerians can’t buy into Mr. President’s claims of an empty treasury.”
Its is on record that President Obama inherited US$3 trillion debt, a collapsed banking sector and mortgage industry,yet he never raised any alarm. None of these has happened in Nigeria under Jonathan.
It will be misleading therefore for our respected President Muhammadu Buhari and indeed the ruling APC to claim to have met an empty treasury.”
He further reminded the new government that “aspiration to governance is a call of meeting and confronting challenges headlong. So, we urge the APC-led government to hit the ground running as promised Nigerians by confronting the challenges.
He warned that the former President, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan must not be criminalized and painted a plunderer and looter of the nation’s treasury before the generality of Nigerians, while they man was described in some quarters are tight hand when it comes to spending government money.
In the last one week, Nigeria Reserve left by Jonathan have been reduced by $600,000,000 by the new government yet they met empty Treasure. Buhari bought his customised S600 Maybach Mercedes official car valued about N500,000,000, and other cars in that range, yet he met empty Treasury.
Buhari is paying for his numerous foreign trips alongside large entourage, and threwing lavish party for APC supporters in the villa and Transcorp Hotel, running into billions, forgetting that millions of Nigerians workers have not received their wages, yet he met empty treasure.
All APC Transition Committee members are staying in Transcorp Hotel at the rate of N500,000 and N350,000 a night, but Jonathan advised his own committee members to be coming from their Abuja homes to save cost. Buhari And Empty Treasury!!!!
For the fact that Abubakar Suleiman, a former minster under Goodluck Jonathan knew exactly how much ($30Billion) was in the country’s treasury when they handed over, shows that the former President ran a transparent government.
Buhari should sit up from his bum and start delivering his 18 electioneering campaign promises. No excuse is acceptable to us. He MUST deliver.
I also learn that the federal government shared N418Billions for FG, STATES AND LGAs for the month of May 2015. Wow. If Buhari can share N418Billions from an empty treasury, May God almighty empty my treasury in Jesus name.
NIGERIANS MUST NOT BE TAKEN AS FOOLS BY BUHARI AND APC. THEY MUST FULFILL THE PROMISES MADE TO NIGERIANS. –
