Nigeria’s President, Muhammadu Buhari, has blamed the previous government at all levels for what he called “abuse of trust in the purchase of equipment and other ammunition to fight the war against Boko Haram”.
A situation, the President, said has cost Nigeria huge loss of lives and property.
The President made this disclosure while addressing members of the House of Representatives, who he hosted to a presidential dinner at the Banquet Hall of the Presidential Villa.
President Buhari described as unfortunate, a situation where the Nigerian Army which defended Africa in peacekeeping operations, could not engage Boko Haram.
He said that the millions of Naira and Dollars expended by the past administration could not be properly utilised.
The President called on the members of the House to support him in the fight and expressed optimism that the war on Boko Haram must be won.
He also gave the assurance that his administration is making concerted efforts to raise the moral of the soldiers and get the necessary equipment
