General Theophilus Danjuma (rtd), has advised President-elect, Muhammadu Buhari, to investigate the administration of President Goodluck Jonathan over the $60 billion debt it will inherit.
The former Defense Minister made the call while speaking to reporters in Takum, Taraba State on Saturday, during the commissioning three newly built bridges along Takum-Katsina Ala road.
”What we are hearing is that the treasury of the country is empty at the federal level. A debt of $60 would be left behind for the incoming government.
“I’m calling on the new administration to investigate what happened to our monies as soon as Buhari takes over power on May 29. With that, some of the stolen funds would be recovered.”
“It is disheartening to know that the incoming government of Buhari will have to contend with a debt of over $60billion and there is nothing to show for this huge debt.”
“Well, we would know what happened to these monies, because I believe that the Buhari administration has to, and should, in national interest, investigate the administration so that we would know what happened.”
