In his statement below “The party (PDP) caused most of the problems we are facing.

“They took what they called bonds and they were expending it on white elephants.

“We didn’t collect N30bn in bailout. That is a lie. We took N20bn.

“Those who accessed what we needed to pay salaries and pensions projected N50.8bn, which was approved by Mr. President.
