An All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftain in Bauchi state, Ali Ibrahim Ningi, has slammed President Muhammadu Buhari over the sharing of the $350million loot recovered from former military dictator, late Gen. Sani Abacha.
Ningi told reporters in Bauchi on Tuesday, that it was unfortunate for the federal government to plan giving poor Nigerians N5,000 out of the Abacha loot as a palliative measure against poverty and hunger.
He said, “Yes, I listened to the programme aired by international radio with shock if it’s true that the Federal Government has decided to give Nigerians N5,000 out of the Abacha loot.”
“It’s expected that the Federal Government should channel the funds to education, health and the N-Power programme apparently to cushion the adverse poverty among Nigerians as was the system during Buhari’s days as PTF boss where drugs were procured through the agency,” Ningi added.
He cautioned the President not to allow himself be derailed by “corrupt presidential cabals”, stressing that any attempt to disburse the Abacha loot to Nigerians by the APC government would justify the weakness and incapability of the Buhari administration.
