Tinubu inherited a bankrupt Nigeria from Buhari – Ribadu


The National Security Adviser, Nuhu Ribadu, has lamented that the current administration inherited a bankrupt country from the previous administration of former President Muhammadu Buhari.

According to him, the revenue earned by the Bola Tinubu administration is being used to repay the country’s debts.

The NSA made the announcement on Monday during the Chief of Defence Intelligence Annual Conference 2023 in Abuja.

Despite the financial constraints that had hindered budgetary allocations, Ribadu stated that the Federal Government will do everything in its ability to create a robust and viable defence management and apparatus in the country.

He said, “I assure you that the Federal Government will not rest on its oars in ensuring a robust and viable defence management and security apparatus to address contemporary challenges even in the face of enormous budgetary constraints.

“Yes, we’re facing budgetary constraints. It is okay for me to tell you. Fine, it is important for you to know that we have inherited a very difficult situation, literally a bankrupt country, no money, to a point where we can say that all the money we’re getting now, we’re paying back what was taken. It is serious!

“But this administration is doing its best to meet our requirements, particularly the armed forces, and I believe that you leaders will be able to testify to that,”.

He also said the armed forces under the current leadership had shown serious commitment to addressing the prevailing security challenges bedevilling the country.

“Let us come together as one and continue to support our armed forces and other security agencies with this work of securing our country for peace and stability.

“They have done an amazingly good job without talking and I believe that with the support and the resolve of the leadership we have today in our country, things will only be better.”
