The Minister of transportation, Rotimi Amaechi has said that ex-President Goodluck Jonathan’s administration did not leave any money for President Buhari.

Amaechi also alleged that the $65billion which was left by former President Olusegun Obasanjo, was wasted by GEJ’s government.

The minister said “When Obasanjo was leaving, he left about 65 billion dollars in the Excess Crude Account, but this money was frittered away and we wonder where the money is.

“As at then, the price of crude oil during the president Goodluck Jonathan’s administration hovered around 140 dollars with this, they did not leave anything for the incoming government.

“With that kind of money, we should be thinking of connecting Nigeria through rail system. The rail between Ibadan to Kano would have been completed.

“Also the rail gauge between Port Harcourt to Maiduguri and Lagos to Calabar, but all the excess crude money was frittered away, we need to ask questions.’’

GEJ failed Igbos

Rotimi Amaechi had earlier alleged that former President Goodluck Jonathan did not do anything to develop the South-East region.

Amaechi said that President Jonathan went to Onitsha, danced and promised to construct Onitsha bridge, but nothing was done.
