President Muhammadu Buhari has echoed that his administration is doing what no government in the past has done with the level of “scarce resources” handed over to his administration.

The embattled president made this known in his nationwide Independence Day speech on Thursday.

The President noted that national resources had reduced drastically than previous administrations had to work with, adding his administration has been doing much with a very small budget.

He was quoted as saying:

“No government in the past did what we are doing with such scarce resources. We have managed to keep things going inspite of the disproportionate spending on security.
