Buhari to Obasanjo: You have questions to answer over $16bn power project

President Muhammadu Buhari says a former president has questions to answer over the $16 billion power project.

Buhari said this on Tuesday when he hosted the Buhari Support Organisation led by Hameed Ali, comptroller-general of the Nigeria Customs Service.

Although he did not mention the name of ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo, Buhari asked “where was the power after a former president claimed to have spent $16 billion on the project?”

In 2008, the house of representatives had described $16 billion spent on power by Obasanjo’s government as colossal waste, blaming it on “poor budget planning and a lack of proper oversight by relevant bodies.
