President Buhari said that his administration is working very hard to restructure the Nigerian economy that has been destroyed by several years of mismanagement.
A statement issued by the President’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr Femi Adesina, said Buhari stated this in Abuja on Monday while receiving the Chief Global CEO of Unilever, Mr Paul Polman.

The statement quoted the President as saying that Nigeria is paying dearly for the incompetent management of the massive revenue that accrued to the nation from oil.

It also quoted Buhari as saying that the country was particularly paying dearly for over a decade’s decay of critical infrastructure.

”We refused to save for the rainy day. Now the rain is beating us.

“No money, no savings, nothing. And we are thoroughly wet from the rains,” he said.
