President Muhammadu Buhari, has has spoken out over the crippling power supply in the country as he called out a former President saying that he has questions to answer.
Speaking while receiving the Buhari Support Organisation led by the Comptroller-General of Nigerian Customs Service, Hameed Ali, President Muhammadu Buhari, on Tuesday, said that former President Olusegun Obasanjo has questions to answer over the spending of $16 billion on power projects during his administration.
According to Premium Times, the president who made the statement at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, did not mention Obasanjo’s name, but he asked “where was the power after a former president claimed to have spent $16 billion on the project?”
The power project was done during the Obasanjo administration (1999-2006). It has been described as a mismanagement of public funds by observers and civic groups.
Obasanjo was a key supporter of Muhammadu Buhari in the build-up to the 2015 general election. He has also pledged to work against Buhari’s re-election in 2019 saying he has performed poorly in office.
