Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, has said the People’s Democratic Party frittered away $383 billion in four years, rather than spend the funds on major infrastructure for the country.
Prof. Osinabjo disclosed this in Abuja, yesterday, at the 11th Bola Tinubu Colloquium, held to commemorate the birthday of the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.
Osinbajo, who represented President Muhammadu Buhari at the event, blamed past governments for being wasteful in times of abundance.
“I have said it before, Nigeria’s main problem is not a lack of ideas, it’s not. Most of the time, especially with the leadership of the past, it is lack of integrity in leadership and corruption in particular and it is the reason we are finding it difficult to make any progress.
“That is why we earned $383 billion in four years – 2010 to 2014 – the highest ever in the history of our country and yet Lagos-Ibadan expressway not done, all of what is being done today not done.
“We cannot point to a single major project, a single major infrastructure project that was completed in the ten years period despite the high wealth, including power. So, a government.
