Nigeria’s President, Muhammadu Buhari has lamented over inheriting what he called a ‘virtually empty treasury’ from the Jonathan-led administration. He said that the country had incurred debts running into hundred of millions of dollars.
The president made this comments yesterday, 22nd of June 2015 during a meeting with members of the State House Press Corps. He said:
I hope we are starting and this culture developed, of hundred days is bringing so much pressure with treasury virtually empty, with debts in millions of dollars, with state workers and even federal workers not paid their salaries. It is such a disgrace for Nigeria.
I think Nigeria should be in a position to even pay its workers. This bad management that we find ourselves in, we really need your help to protect us from people before they march on us.
The President also assumed office yesterday after moving into the Aso Rock Villa on Sunday, 21st of June
