Majority Leader of the House Of Representatives, Mr Femi Gbajabiamila, on Friday blamed the government of former President Goodluck Jonathan for the country’s economic crisis, saying it left an empty treasury.

Gbajabiamila spoke at the Town Hall Meeting he organised to give account of his stewardship to his constituents in Surulere, Lagos.

“Things are very difficult in Nigeria today; we must acknowledge that. The question we need to ask ourselves is why? And the answer is very simple.

“When this government came into power, we knew the situation was bad, we knew the previous government did so much damage to the economy, but, we did not know how bad.

“It was when this government got there that they saw the books and they found that everything was empty.

“Apart from the falling oil revenue, we have read in the papers how people are being tried for looting the country`s treasury; how people were putting billions meant for terror war in their pockets.

“The kind of rot, the kind of corruption Buhari met is unprecedented anywhere in the world. Had the president not taken some of the measures he is taking now, the system would have collapsed completely,” he said.

Gbajabiamila also justified the recent hike in the price of petrol, saying it was the best for the country at this critical point in time.
