Professor Yemi Osinbajo, Nigerian Vice President has asked the major opposition party, the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) how it spent oil money accrued to the nation from 1999 to 2015.
Osinbajo said the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has spent trillions of naira on infrastructural development that it is not a party that believes in sharing public money.
He said this over the weekend in Delta state at the palace of Ovie of Ughelli, HRM Oharisi III when he paid the traditional ruler a courtesy visit.
In his address to the monarchs, Osinbajo, who was accompanied by Minister of State for Petroleum, Dr. Ibe Kachukwu, Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan and others, said: “This is not a government that believes that the money of the people should be stolen because our determination is to build this country.
“We are earning today 60 percent less than what the country earned in the past 10years, yet we are spending more in building infrastructure than any government in the country today.
“The question we ought to ask previous government is, what did they do with the monies if today we are still building the Itakpe-Warri railway line which was established 35years ago as well as the Kaduna Hydro project which also was established 40years ago?”
