I was told billions of dollars generated from oil were used to buy food – Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari has revealed how the country got into the present economic crisis, blaming the current recession in the country not only on the failure of past leaders to save for rainy days, but their failure to develop infrastructures.
Speaking while briefing top Nigerian professionals from different parts of the United States, U.S, he stated that upon assumption of office, he was told that the billions of dollar generated from the export of crude oil over the years was used in buying food, despite that Nigerians grow what is consumed in the country.
He stated that those who stole Nigeria dry are not happy with his government’s efforts in tackling the country’s challenges, explaining that this was why “they recruited the militants against us in the Niger Delta, and began to sabotage oil infrastructure.”
