Days after the Vice President-elect, Professor Yemi Osinbajo raised concerns about the huge debt President Goodluck Jonathan was leaving behind to Muhammadu Buhari’s government to inherit, former Defence Minister, Lt. Gen. T. Y. Danjuma (retd) has asked the president-elect, Buhari, to investigate the outgoing administration over the $60 billion debt the new administration will inherit.
Theophilus Danjuma lamented that the outgoing administration had nothing to show for incurring the debt it has and emphasized that a probe was needed to find out how President Jonathan’s Government accrued this debt.
Danjuma said: “It is disheartening to know that the incoming government of Buhari will have to contend with a debt of over $60billion 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.”
