OCT 1: I Have Been Programmed To Fail – Buhari Weeps

President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday, September 30, said he will not stop blaming past administrations for the problems of Nigeria, because they looted the treasury, making him unable to succeed.

He told youths at an event tagged: “The Conversation: An evening with creative youth”, that he did not meet any money in the treasury.

Buhari, also called on Nigerian youths to stand up to their responsibilities, by holding their leaders accountable.

He said “I am going to bore you with what we met. I know that I am being accused in the papers of passing the buck, but passing the buck is sometimes absolutely necessary, to remind people who take things for granted.

“When we came in, I screamed to high heavens, because I had promised a lot while seeking votes.

“I said where the saving is? There was no saving. There was no infrastructure, power, rails, roads, there was none. What did we spend the money on? I was told, buying food and petrol.

“Where were the billions going? We conducted a study, and found out that the oil marketers were committing fraud on at least one third ‎of what they were importing, which is about 25 percent of our foreign exchange.

“The youth must watch our elite, especially with the condition we found ourselves. It is unpatriotic for anybody to pretend that economically, we have no problem.

“I have bored you with this long explanation, because there are things that could be hidden from you, by those that have mismanaged the country in the last 16, 17 years.”
