Former president Jonathan’s aide, Reno Omokri, posted the said proof on his Facebook page. It shows that Mr. Obi actually left N86,665,985,574.06 billion for his successor, Governor Willie Obiano.
Speaking on the topic, “Cutting cost in governance,” Obi lamented Nigeria’s economic crisis and blamed public office holders for wastage, even during this time of recession.
He advised governors to scrap the Office of the First Lady which he said gulps N2 billion monthly.

“It costs an average of N2 billion to run the office of the First Lady in every state in Nigeria. Multiply by 36. Nigeria can still function on its income if only we learn how to cut cost. We need to cut the cost of governance. No governor needs a house in Abuja; governors don’t live in Abuja,” Obi said.
“Do away with unconstitutional office of the First Lady. Reduce Governor’s cars to 2, instead of 6 bullet-proof cars. Reduce government house jeeps instead of 25 jeeps.”
Obi charged Nigerians to stop celebrating criminality, adding that there is enough money for development in Nigeria.
Obi said he saved $50m and N7b in Access bank, $55m and N10b in Fidelity bank, and $155.4m in Diamond bank.
Speaking on calls to borrow money to boost the economy, Obi said: “There is nothing wrong with borrowing. The crisis we are facing is that we do not know what we are using the money we are borrowing for.”
“Nigeria can make good use of the money if the leaders reduce spending.”
He asked Governors to spend less to running their offices and maintaining their aides.
