A former Minister of Communication ADEBAYO SHITTU claims that there were manipulations and fraudulent approvals under the immediate past government of ex-President MUHAMMADU BUHARI.

SHITTU who served as a Minister under the Buhari government believed many persons close to the former Nigerian president manipulated things to their favour, plunging the country’s economy into a downward slide. 

Moreover, his claims supported that of presidential spokesman AJURI NGELALE who said many approvals for releasing funds within the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) under GODWIN EMEFIELE did not have BUHARI’S signature.

“Let me tell you, there were a lot of manipulations and we even heard that a lot of the so-called approvals did not emanate from President Buhari,” he said on Tuesday’s edition of Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily while responding to comments that the previous government was printing money to run the economy.

“There were a lot of manipulations and fraudulent approvals which did not emanate from the President.”

“I am telling you confidently that a lot of it did not get his attention,” he insisted. “There were a lot of people around the President who exploited their relationship with the President and conspired with the then-CBN governor.
