The president noted that it is important for him to bring to fore the decisions of past governments in order for Nigerians to know where we got it wrong.

The president made the comments at an event held today at the Presidential Villa tagged “The Conversation: An evening with creative youths,” with the theme “Creative youth as drivers of the change agenda.”

His words: “I am going to bore you with what we met. I know that I am being accused in the papers of passing the buck, but passing the buck is sometimes absolutely necessary to remind people who take things for granted.

“When we came in, I screamed to high heavens because I had promised a lot while seeking votes. “I said where is the saving? There was no saving.

There was no infrastructure, power, rails, roads, there was none. What did we spend the money on? I was told buying food and petrol.

“Where were the billions going? We conducted a study and found out that the oil marketers were committing fraud on at least one third ‎of what they were importing, which is about 25 per cent of our foreign exchange. ‎

”The youth must watch our elite, especially with the condition we found ourselves. It is unpatriotic for anybody to pretend that economically we have no problem.

“I have bored you with this long explanation because there are things that could be hidden from you by those that have mismanaged the country in the last 16, 17 years.”

 Among those that graced the occasion were Vice President Yemi Osinbajo and his wife Dolapo, wife of the president; Hajiya Aisha Buhari and some state governors.

Meanwhile, an analyst at a leading information and advisory services firm for emerging markets – Frontier Strategy Group, Martina Bozadzhieva has blamed President Buhari for mishandling the economy.

Bozadzhieva noted that Nigeria was always going to suffer from drop in oil prices, but blamed the Buhari’s government for what he called its “bungled response”.
