According to Vanguard Newspaper, President-elect Gen. Muhammadu Buhari has shown interest to revisit the issue of the alleged missing $20 billion from the NNPC coffers.
While addressing a delegation of the Adamawa State chapter of the All Progressives Congress, APC at the campaign headquarters in Abuja on April 26th, Gen. Buhari questioned why GEJ didn’t do much to investigate the missing money when it was raised by the former CBN governor now Emir of Kano Muhammad Sanusi II, but was instead hurriedly sacked.
“I heard that some people have started returning money; I will not believe it until I go and see for myself. Imagine a situation where the former CBN governor who by God ‘s grace would later become the Emir of Kano raised an issue of missing billions of money, not in Naira but in Dollars, $20 billion. What happened, instead of investigating to know whether it was true that the money was missing or not, they simply found a reason to remove him. So these are the issues we are talking about,” the president-elect said in Hausa.
