On Thursday Buhari had informed the general public that the Peoples Democratic party, PDP, has questions to answer over the squandering over $500billion from 1999 to 2014.
Shehu Sani, a senator from Kaduna has taken to Twitter to reply to the president that Buhari should start from members of PDP who are in APC first the money got squandered. Since according to him, most PDP members then are now in APC enjoying protection from anti-graft agencies.
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.”
