President Muhammadu Buhari has promised to probe the previous government to account for the $16bn power projects that never came to light.
Buhari stated this when he spoke in Yenagoa, the Bayelsa State capital, during the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential campaign rally in the state.
He told his supporters and listeners at the rally ground that he was unrelenting in his pursuit of those who looted the nation’s resources.
The Federal Government reportedly spent N16 billion on power projects between 1999 and 2007 when Obasanjo was in government.
“The previous government mentioned on their own that they spent $16bn on power but you are better witnesses than myself. Where is the power? Where is the money? We will follow them, eventually God willing, we will catch them and get our money back.”
