As Nigerians head to the polls on Saturday to elect governors and House of Assembly members, President Muhammadu Buhari, has reminded Nigerians that the country cannot afford to go back to the era of violence and mayhem.
President Buhari stated this Thursday, while receiving Labour leaders who came to congratulate him on his electoral victory at the State House, Abuja.
According to him, the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) must explain to Nigerians how it managed the huge resources that accrued to the country from oil sales between 1999 and 2014.
In a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, the President said: “PDP has not successfully explained to the country what they did with the money.
“There were no roads, no rail, no power; they said they spent $16 billion on power, but where is the power?
“The irresponsible expenditure of that period has not been explained, and Nigerians deserve an answer on that terrible mismanagement of the country.”
The President further called on Nigerians to avoid anything that could disrupt the election.
