Former Kaduna Central Senator, Shehu Sani has claimed President Muhammadu Buhari wants to sell five power plants to raise N260 billion to fund the 2023 budget.
Sani disclosed this on Wednesday in a post via his verified Twitter handle.
He also alleged that the administration wants to sell public assets to itself.
He wrote, “After piling up N44 trillion debt; With less than six months to go, the Buhari-led FG wants to sell our five power plants to raise N260 billion in the name of funding the 2023 budget.
“When they want to sell public assets to themselves, they will hide themselves & send their business friends to ‘bid’. After buying the assets, they will appoint their children, Brothers or inlaws to chair the Board. After 5 years or more, the identity of the real buyer will be known.”
