Deputy National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Segun Oni, says former president Goodluck Jonathan caused what he called ”horrendous damage” to the Nigerian economy.
He told newsmen on Thursday at the Makurdi airport that the damage was ”worst than one can imagine”.
Oni, a former Ekiti State governor on the platform of PDP, said the looting of the country’s treasury was also responsible for the inability of many states to pay salaries in spite of the bail-out funds and other interventions from President Muhammadu Buhari to address the issue.
According to him, the good intentions of the president is to ensure all workers at the three tiers of government are paid regularly.
”Although, I was a former PDP member, I was not part of the looting,” he said.
He expressed shock over the decisions of some serving ministers to have openly declared their support for their god-father’s political ambition in 2019.
Oni said the party would address the issue at the appropriate time.
