Obasanjo vs Buhari: Oby Ezekwesili reacts to $16bn saga

A former Education Minister, Oby Ezekwesili, has reacted to the comment by President Muhammadu Buhari that $16 billion was spent on the power sector by the administration of former President Olusegun Obasanjo.

She pointed out that the issue was too important to be joked with, adding that a serious leadership would have taken the necessary action on the matter.

The former Minister on her twitter handle, @obyezeks, noted that it was not enough to bring up the issue whenever there is a political debate.

Ezekwesili tweeted, “The ‘$16Billion Power Sector expenditure allegation’ has a way of always surfacing for public debate whenever there are squabbles within the political circle.

“I wish to assert that it is time for Citizens to demand independent and exhaustive expert investigation of that matter.

“The Power Sector is too important a determinant of the level of Productivity and Competitiveness of each Nigerian, Business and Country as a whole to be mired in unresolved controversy among the Political Class.

“Let’s have an independent expert panel inaugurated to investigate.”
