President Muhammadu Buhari again on Monday tackled his predecessors in office for allegedly failing to invest in infrastructure despite the huge resources that accrued to the country under their watch .
According to a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity , Mr Femi Adesina , the President spoke while receiving the outgoing British High Commissioner to Nigeria , Paul Arkwright , at the Presidential Villa , Abuja.
Buhari said with the humongous resources at the disposal of Nigeria between 1999 and 2014 , it was sad that infrastructure went to rot completely within the same period .
Although he did not mention names , former Presidents Olusegun Obasanjo , Umaru Yar ’ Adua and Goodluck Jonathan were in the saddle between 1999 and 2014 .
Buhari was quoted as stating , “ Our focus now is on infrastructure – roads , rail , power , and others . How I wish we had fixed all those when we had money .
“ What we earned between 1999 and 2014 is on record , but nothing was done to infrastructure . Now , we are doing a lot more with a lot less resources . And we shall continue to do our best . ”
The President commended the outgoing High Commissioner for his warm and pleasant disposition , which had seen him traversing almost the entire country .
“ I always see you all over the place , ” the President noted .
Arkwright , who spent over three years in Nigeria , said he visited 30 of the 36 states , and found the people quite enterprising and engaging .
He added that the British government would be glad to offer a helping hand as required in any part of the country .
He thanked Buhari for his support , adding that the relations between Britain and Nigeria had improved tremendously in the past three years .
