$322m Abacha Loot: Sentaor Shehu Sani Disagrees with Buhari on Sharing of Funds
The Senator representing Kaduna Central in the National Assembly, Shehu Sani has disagreed with President Muhammadu Buhari over the sharing of the $350million loot recovered from former military ruler, late Gen. Sani Abacha.
Sani in a tweet on saturday said the sharing of the loot to 180 million Nigerians was impossible, adding that the money will end up with beneficiaries nominated by governors, ministers, lawmakers and the president’s men.
The Kaduna lawmaker further suggested that the money be tied to a project Nigerians can see with their eyes.
”Sharing $350 million recovered loot to 180 million Nigerians is impossible. It will end up with beneficiaries whose names will be given by governors, ministers, lawmakers and the president’s men.
“Let it be tied to a project Nigerians can see with their ‘Korokoro eyes’,” Senator Sani tweeted.
The federal government had on Thursday declared that it would share the $350m Abacha loot repatriated by Switzerland on poor households throughout 19 states as from July.
