Former President, Muhammadu Buhari has insisted that his administration saved Nigeria’s economy through its fight against corruption.
A statement by Buhari’s spokesman, Garba Shehu, in response to the allegations raised against him by former Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Mohammed Adoke, over Process & Industrial Developments (P&ID), Paris Club, and the Ajaokuta steel company, said the cases identified by Adoke originated from an administration that the former Attorney General was part of.
Buhari stressed that his administration inherited the contract and incidental judgement in the P&ID.
The statement reads in part: “The logical conclusion any reasonable person can draw on P&ID, Paris Club, and Ajaokuta is that President Buhari came on a rescue mission and effectively saved Nigeria from corrupt undertones that were planted to expose its economy to imminent collapse.
“The success of the Buhari administration in the fight against corruption is unprecedented.”
