Nuhu Ribadu, the National Security Adviser (NSA), has disclosed that former President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration made Nigeria bankrupt.
Speaking during the Chief of Defence Intelligence Annual Conference themed, ‘Leveraging Defence Diplomacy and Regional Collaboration for Enhanced National Security,’ Ribadu made the disclosure.
This, according to him, made the President Bola Ahmed Tinubu-led government inherit a bankrupt country.
He added that the Federal Government is “paying back what was taken.”
“We are facing very serious budgetary constraints. It is okay for me to tell you. It is fine for you to know. We have a very serious situation.
“We have inherited a very difficult country, a bankrupt country to the extent that we are paying back what was taken. It is serious.
“But this administration is doing its best to meet our requirements including that of the armed forces,” he said.
Ribadu further praised the Armed Forces of Nigeria (AFN) for their exemplary performance that has kept “the peace of the nation”.
“You have done well and you are doing well. You are the reason why we are a nation today. This country is grateful. You are the reason why we have peace. We have a very solid security team, the service chiefs”, he said.
He said despite the constraints, the security situation in the country had improved significantly.
