Those who stole from Nigeria hired miltants to fight us – Buhari | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper

President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday said those who stole Nigeria dry are angry with his government and so have recruited the services of militants in the Niger Delta to fight his government.

 President Buhari in a group photo with Nigerians professionals residing in the US. He said this while addressing a group of Nigerians professionals residing in the US.


He added “We got into trouble as a country, because we did not save for the rainy day. For example, between 1999 and 2015, when we produced an average of 2.1 million barrels of oil per day, and oil prices stood at an average of $100 per barrel, we did not save, neither did we develop infrastructure.

“Suddenly, when we came in 2015, oil prices fell to about 30 dollars per barrel. I asked; where are the savings? There were none.Where are the railways? The roads? Power? None.

I further asked; what did we do with billions of dollars that we made over the years? They said we bought food. Food with billions of dollars? I did not believe, and still do not believe. In most parts of Nigeria, we eat what we grow.”

Buhari noted People in the South eat tubers, those in the North eat grains, which they plant, and those constitute over 60 per cent of what we eat. So, where did the billions of dollars go?

We did a lot of damage to ourselves by not developing infrastructure when we had the money. Talking of our military, they earned respect serving in places like Burma, Zaire, Sudan, Liberia, Sierra-Leone, and then, suddenly, that same military could no longer secure 14 out of 774 local governments in the country.

Insurgents had seized them, calling them some sort of caliphate, and planting their flags there; till we came, and scattered them.

 We raised the morale of our military, changed the leadership, re-equipped and retrained them; USA, Britain, and some other countries helped us, and today, the pride of our military is restored”he said

    2. Are you not happy that a gov't riddled with so massive corruption never recorded in the history of this nation was disrupted? Who knows where we would be today @ $30 per barrel oil price with several billions of $ in private accounts of only 0.05% of the whole population?

  8. Buhari is a useless old man. An old man uses wisdom. Condemning past government doesn't add anything to us rather than action. Remember, what you sow you will reap. People are waiting for you to leave office and start digging you.

    1. People are crying now because they are used to stealing our common resources.It is a shame that South South remains in a deplorable state despite resources committed through both NNPC and Ministry of Niger Delta. That tells me that most people of South south are chronic thieves
