Obasanjo blasts Jonathan again

06 January 2015, 11:31

Abuja - Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has again launched a public attack on President Goodluck Jonathan, accusing him of squandering $25billion crude oil savings left behind by his administration, Punch reports.

Obasanjo made the allegation while hosting the South-West women leaders who visited him at his Hilltop residence in Abeokuta, Ogun State.

He said his administration left $25billion in Nigeria’s foreign reserve account after paying the outstanding debt at the time but the government of President Jonathan has squandered it.
