The President explained that his decision was due to empty treasury he inherited from his predecessor, Goodluck Jonathan.
He disclosed that he was bewildered to notice that despite the rising cost of crude oil from which Nigeria made a fortune, the treasury was empty.
“I felt like absconding from the country due to the economic challenges.. We inherited a badly managed economy”, he said.
