President Muhammadu Buhari has made a revelation that the looting of the Nigerian treasury by the looters were done without any form of mercy for Nigeria.
This position was made known in London where President Buhari further berated the looting of the treasury by past administrations, adding that the stealing was too much.
President Buhari revealed that the looters were so inept that they did not cover their tracks well.
Speaking in London while receiving the Buhari Diaspora Support Organisation, led by Mr. Charles Sylvester, President Buhari in a statement issued by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina said, “I am happy that people like you are here, on your own, defending the country.
“You have shown courage and sacrifice.
“I assure you that your confidence in us won’t be abused, we will do our best to justify it.
“The failure of some of the leadership we had in the past led to our not being able to capitalize on resources to improve the lot of the people.
“Wicked people plundered the country, and kept Nigerians poor.
“The damage done to the economy in the years of plunder was massive and the government is doing its best to recover some of the loot.
“If they had used 50 per cent of the money we made, when oil prices went as high as $143 per barrel, and stabilized at $100 with production at 2.1 million barrels per day for many years, Nigerians would have minded their businesses.
“You could almost grow food on our roads, as they were abandoned.
“The stealing was so much, and they were so inept that they could not even cover the stealing properly.
“I wonder how all those things could have happened to our country.”
