Crashed oil price has made Nigeria a poor country- President Buhari says



President Buhari today said the sudden fall in oil price in the international market has made Nigeria to become a poor country.

 He said this while speaking at a meeting with the executive director of the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) and under secretary-general of the United Nations, Babatunde Osotimehin, at the state House Abuja today August 11th



“It has been a very difficult year for Nigeria. Before we came to office, petroleum sold for about $100 per barrel. Then it crashed to $37, and now oscillates between $40 and $45 per barrel. Suddenly, we’re a poor country, but commitment to transparency and accountability is not making people know that there is severe shortage.”he said
