President Muhammadu Buhari has said that he will probe the $16 billion former President Olusegun Obasanjo spent on the power sector.
The President stated this during the All Progressives Congress, APC campaign rally which took place at Oxbow Lake Pavilion, Bayelsa State.
He said his administration will probe and recover the $16 billion spent on power by the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, led past administrations with nothing to show for it.
His words: “You know we are building roads, railways, there was no power, we are bringing power back. The previous governments mentioned on their own that they spent $16 billion on power but you are better witnesses than myself, where is the power? Where is the money? We will follow them, eventually we will get them and we will get our money back. I assure you that we will maintain focus in securing this country and mange it properly.
“I assure you that the APC government will take seriously our programmes on security, economy and infrastructure. We are also promising that we will make people who occupy executive positions both in federal and state governments to be accountable to the people.
“If you could recall, when I came in 2015 with our party, we articulated issues which we campaigned on and which we are working on, among them security, economy and fighting corruption.”
