Let me further shock Nigerians: Former President Jonathan inherited a total debt of ₦7.9 trillion when he became acting President in 2010. In 5 years he borrowed ₦4.7 trillion. He built the Abuja-Kaduna railway, 14 universities, 165 almajiri schools, revived the railways in 5 of the 6 geopolitical zones, completed Olorunsogo 2 and Afam power plants and dredged the river Niger up to Baro, etc. General Buhari met debt of ₦12 trillion and borrowed ₦18.9 trillion. What has he done with the debt? This government likes to point to the Second Niger Bridge. First of all, that bridge was initiated and started by Jonathan. Secondly, it is a PPP project of which the initial payment was made by the Jonathan administration and the other payment is to be made by Julius Berger, who will recoup their money by tolling the bridge. So, again, I ask, what has Buhari done with ₦18.9 trillion?
