Retired General Buhari also said that the All Progressives Congress, APC, has drawn up a road map to address the issues of insecurity, youth unemployment and corruption in the country.

Sanusi had told the Senate Committee probing the allegation of unremitted funds, that the NNPC shipped 67billion dollars in crude and only 47 billion dollars had come back to the Federation.

The then CBN Governor insisted that the NNPC had to proof where the 20billion dollars was.

The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC, at the time dismissed the allegation, calling it baseless.

A forensic audit was also conducted by PriceWaterhouseCoopers (PWC) on the alleged missing 20billion dollars, the report of which the Group Managing Director of the NNPC said did not indict the corporation in anyway.
