The Minister of transportation and the Director-General, All Progressives Congress (APC) Campaign Organisation, Rotimi Amaechi has revealed the total money the former President Goodluck Jonathan left in the Government coffer.
He clearly made it known that only $2.5 billion was left in the coffers of the federal government when Jonathan was leaving office in 2015.
He emphasised that the corruption allegedly perpetrated by the immediate past administration of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) was traceable to the current harsh economy in the country.
Amaechi, the former governor of Rivers state also revealed that former President Olusegun Obasanjo left $68bn while in office.
He expressed concern on why Jonathan could leave $2.5bn for President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration, alleging that the Jonathan’s government ruined the nation’s economy through corruption.
Amaechi spoke in Akure, the Ondo State capital during the party’s presidential campaign rally held on Tuesday in Akure, the Ondo state capital.
President Buhari at the occasion maintained that his administration has kept faith to all his electioneering campaign promises, especially on the fight against corruption.
According to him, many corrupt Nigerians have been arrested and prosecuted in the last three and half years of his administration.
