The revelation that $2trillion looted funds has been recovered in the last 18 years is cause for serious concern. More worrisome is Nigerians’ apathy to the revelation.
The revelation was made by the Speaker of the House of Representatives Yakubu Dogara who said that the Federal Government has recovered USD2 Trillion in Money and Assets from 1999 to date.
Reacting to the revelation, the Buhari Media Organization (BMO) says that it is surprising that this information has not evoked widespread condemnation from the citizenry considering the huge amount involved.
“It is on record that Nigeria has never budgeted up to USD100 Billion since the return to democracy, and here we are today discovering that few people looted more than USD2 Trillion in this Country.
In a statement signed by the Chairman Niyi Akinsiju and Secretary Cassidy Madueke, the group observed that “this is a country that has serious infrastructure deficit, where there is not enough supply of Electricity to power Manufacturing Industries and Micro, Small, & Medium Enterprise since 1999.
“Our citizens are killed on daily basis because the roads motorists ply are not fixed for many years; some since the colonial time. The Education Sector is no better, with the higher institutions churning out graduates that are mostly unemployable.
“These are direct consequences of the unprecedented looting that happened in the last 18 years, 16 of which were superintended by the People Democratic Party (PDP), if this does not offend Nigerians to condemn the leadership of the PDP, then there may not be hope for the future generations.”
