FG decries N65bn debt owed fertiliser suppliers by Jonathan administration

The Federal Government has decried the inability of the previous administration to settle the outstanding N65 billion fertiliser debt owed to suppliers of the commodity. This is contained in a statement issued by Malam Garba Shehu, the Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity to the President in Abuja on Monday. Shehu said it was wrong for the government to purchase fertilisers worth N65 billion since 2014 and left the bill unpaid.
