June 23, 2015 – “I’ll Recover Money Stolen By Corrupt Nigerian Politicians Under Jonathan” – Buhari Tells 36 State Governors During Meeting In Aso Rock
The president met with PDP and APC governors at Aso Rock today. During the meeting, PMB categorically stated that he will recover billions stolen by bureaucrats and politicians of the past administration.
“The next three months may be hard, but billions of dollars can be recovered, and we will do our best,” the President told the governors. “There are financial and administrative instructions in every government parastatal and agency. But all these were thrown to the dogs in the past.“Honestly, our problems are great, but we will do our best to surmount them”.
Expressing surprise that the governors had tolerated the atrocities allegedly committed with the Excess Crude Account since 2011, President Buhari promised to tackle the issue decisively.
The President declared that the payment of national revenue into any account other than the Federation Account was an abuse of the constitution, adding that what he had heard was going on in many agencies and corporations, particularly the NNPC, was clearly illegal.
