Buhari says 2016 difficult year for Nigeria

President Muhammadu Buhari has said his administration’s commitment to transparency and accountability has reduced the economic hardships that would have resulted from the falling oil revenue.

Buhari, who stated this while receiving the executive Director of the United Nations Population Fund, Professor Babatunde Osotimehin, at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, regarded 2016 as a difficult year for Nigeria.

Before assuming office, Buhari recalled that crude oil which was selling for about $100 per barrel later crashed to $37, and now hovering between $40 and $45.

He said the development has turned Nigeria into a poor nation, but said the commitment of his administration to transparency and accountability is not making Nigerians to realize there was a severe shortage of resources.
