Buhari Accuses Nigerian Elites Of Harassing His Government’s Efforts

President Buhari Thinking

President Muhammadu Buhari has accused Nigerian elites of harassing his administration despite its effort. 

He said this in his Daura hometown in Katsina State after revalidating his membership of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

He said; 

“The problem is that I will like especially the elites to please be reflective. When we came, where were the resources available from them and the condition of the infrastructure. I was contrived to go over it several times to tell Nigerians that between 1999 and 2014, let them check with the NNPC, let them check with the governor of Central Bank, production was 2.4 million barrels per day and the average cost was $100 per barrel. So for a year’s daily production, Nigeria would earn having 2.4×100 dollars every day. But look at the condition of infrastructure, you know this better than I do.

“I know I went to every local government of the country in my three consecutive attempts to become the President. You know the road more than I do. You know the condition of the rail, the railway is dead. Now look at it everywhere we go, what did they do with all these monies?

“When we took over the administration, production went down to about half a million barrels per day, the price collapsed. We had to do what is called a bailout, wherever we got the money from. Upon all the money from 1999 to 2014 we gave out money from the Centre to pay salaries. No, Nigerian elites are not interested in rating the competence but they are interested in harassing us with all efforts we are making.”
