Senator Smart Adeyemi, The Senator representing Kogi West, has disclosed that, the situation of President Muhammadu Buhari is pitiful due to the comedown of prices of crude oil.

On Thursday, Senator Adeyemi revealed this while adding to a debate on the amendment of 2020 budget on the floor of the Red Chamber.

Smart Adeyemi said, when Nigeria sold crude oil at a higher rate, previous administrations did nit diversify the  Nigeria economy.

“When we were asking the government of the day at that time, to diversify the economy. At the time oil was selling at $100 to $150, that party, squandered our resources.

“Roads were not built, road lines were not constructed, where did the money go? Who were the people who were in charge of our resources?

“I pity this president, I pity this government now that oil is now selling at $22 or $30,” Adeyemi said.

The Senate resumed today to review Buhari's request for assent of the N10.51tr into 2020 budget.

The Bill to adjust the 2020 appropriation act, was examined immediately after the Senate President, Ahmad Lawan read the letter of president during plenary.
