 President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday attributed the suffering in Nigeria today to the drop in crude oil price. The president said that the sudden drop in crude oil price has left Nigeria poor, leading to a struggling economy . President Buhari however said his administration’s commitment to transparency and accountability was serving the country in good stead, despite severe shortage of resources in the country. President Buhari said this while receiving the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) Executive Director and Under Secretary General of the United Nations, Prof Babatunde Osotimehin on Thursday at the State House, Abuja

 “It has been very difficult this year for Nigeria. Petroleum was initially sold at $100 per barrel but has crashed to $37. The prices now is between $40 and $45 per barrel. Suddenly, we’re a poor country, but commitment to transparency and accountability is not making people know that there is severe shortage,” Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, quoted the President as saying.

Asking UNFPA to bear with Nigeria in whichever area the country could not live up to its responsibilities for now,
President Buhari said exploding population and different cultural practices in the country provide fertile ground for research to organizations like UNFPA.

 The President thanked the UN agency for its commitment to saving lives in Nigeria, particularly of women and children. On food security, President Buhari said reports from the North-East of the country were encouraging, as people were returning to their farmlands, with the guarantee of relative security. Prof Osotimehin, a former Minister of Health in Nigeria, said UNFPA was determined to promote health care facilities across the country, noting that reduction of maternal mortality was doable, if the country paid more attention to access to health facilities, and human resources to run them.
 He also encouraged Nigeria to commit to providing resources for health care, on a rollover basis, pledging that the UN would work with the country to provide humanitarian assistance not only in the North-East, “but even extended to the Lake Chad basin.
