Buhari’s emergence saved Nigeria – Masari

Katsina State governor, Aminu Masari, on Wednesday said Nigeria would have been plagued into serious socio-political and economic crisis if President Muhammadu Buhari had not been elected in the 2015 presidential election.
Katsina is the home state of President Buhari.
Speaking on the achievements of the Nigerian leader in two years, Masari said: “I am very proud of him and proud of what he has done in the past two years.
“When we came in 2015, 27 states were not paying salaries, and President Buhari came up with different bailouts,”
“States were given money to be able to pay salaries; those who owed pensions and gratuities were given money to pay, and my state benefited from that gesture. Each state was also given N10 billion from the excess crude account for infrastructure development.
“When the oil price went down and many states could not pay salaries, Buhari introduced what he called budget support.”
“For the first four months, each state was given N1.4 billion and there were many other interventions from the federal government in order to help stabilise the states”, he told Thisday.
The former Speaker of the House of Representatives wondered what would have happened if there were no interventions from the Buhari-led federal government to help stabilise the system.
