A former Minister of Defence, General Theophilous Danjuma has tasked the President-elect General Muhammadu Buhari to probe President Goodluck Jonathan and his administration’s alleged gross mismanagement of resources which he said has left the nation indebted to the tune of over $60 billion.
Danjuma, who spoke in Takum, Taraba State during the official commissioning of two set of bridges he constructed along Takum-Katsina highway, said it has become imperative for the incoming administration to probe the outgoing administration if the menace of corruption would be curbed in the country.
“It is disheartening to know that the incoming government of Buhari will have to contend with a debt of over $60 billion and there is nothing to show for this huge debt. Well, we would know what happened to these monies because I believe that the Buhari administration has to, and should, in national interest, investigate the administration so that we would know what happened,” Danjuma said.
Giving reasons why he decided to not to participate in politics, Danjuma stated that he chose to steer clear of politics because for him, “all the political parties are the same, very bad and so I rather steer clear of it. I support anyone who comes to me for money based on what I make of their person irrespective of political affiliations.”
