Shehu Sani, the lawmaker representing Kaduna central senatorial district in the National Assembly, has reacted to President Muhammadu Buhari’s demand that the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, should explain to Nigerians on how the party expended the humongous resources that accrued the country from sales of oil between 1999 and 2014.
Sani, who lost the bid to retain the Kaduna Central seat in the Senate to All Progressives Congress candidate, Uba Sani, said he supported the President’s demand that PDP should tell Nigerians how the party squandered $592 Billion.
DAILY POST recalls that Buhari’s Spokesman, Femi Adesina, in a statement on Thursday, said Buhari stated this when he received the leadership of organized labour which came to felicitate with him on his electoral victory at the State House, Abuja.
The President said the current administration met a country with dilapidated infrastructure all round in 2015, and it 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,” he said.
But reacting, Shehu Sani in a tweet on Thursday, called on PDP to explain to Nigerians how they squandered $592 Billion.
He wrote: “I support the President’s demand that the PDP should explain how they squandered $592 Billion.
“I advise the opposition party to recall all its past and present members (1999 to 2015), to prepare and present to Mr President and the nation a full report of such a monumental waste.”
