President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday disclosed that he almost absconded the office of the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria when he met almost an empty treasure on resumption.


He made the remark when NIPSS submitted a report to him at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

Noting that daily oil production of 2.1 million barrels was recorded between 1999 and 2015, he said that there was virtually no savings on ground despite the huge income during the period.

Infrastructures, he said, were also in dilapidated states.

  1. Why will the treasury not be empty? Dikko returned 1billion, Obanikoro returned 100million, its only a shallow minded person that will find it hard to imagine how much was embezzled. I weep for Africa

  2. We hear you want to borrow $30b in your short period in Office. Mr president, $50/barrel is not too bad revenue profile for your govt but no food, no money, no peace. We are afraid Mr president may handover worse economy than you are complaining about.
