Escalating Economic Crisis: Buhari Govt Printed, Shared N30 trillion, Sold Untapped Oil- Gov Mutfwang

Governor Caleb Mutfwang Plateau State on Monday said that the government of former President Muhammadu Buhari printed and looted N30 trillion and sold even untapped oil resources.

Mutfwang  who was addressing his new advisers at their inauguration at Government House, Jos said that “we sold our future under the last administration.”

Speaking on the current escalating economic hardship in the country called on Nigerians to set politics aside and save the country. He lamented that Buhari administration left Nigeria worse than it was at the dawn of democracy in 1999.

He said:

“We are at a very difficult juncture in the history of this country and I’m an advocate that after the election you forget politics and face governance.

“And even though the Federal Government is being led by a party other than my own, I owe you the duty to tell Nigerians the truth that this government inherited a worse situation than 1999.”

“This government inherited an economy where we simply printed money up to the tune of N30tn and shared.

“This government inherited an economy where the crude oil we’re yet to take out of the ground had been sold in advance

“So, when you’re talking about the fall of the naira, it’s not rocket science. We sold our future under the last administration.”

“No wonder you’re hearing of riots today, people intercepting food on the way. We are lucky on the plateau that perhaps we have more food than many other states.

“And I pray that the time will not come on the Plateau that we will see this kind of riot for food, but it means we must roll up our sleeves and get to work.

“And that is why, for us as a government, when we announced one of the positions that talked about food security, people were laughing but it is a serious issue.”
