The President-Elect of Nigeria, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari has said that he will probe the alleged missing $20 billion from the coffers of the Nigerian National Petroleum Cooperation, NNPC.
Speaking while addressing a delegation of Adamawa State chapter of the All Progressives Congress, APC who paid him a congratulatory visit at his campaign headquarters in Abuja, Buhari criticized the present government for turning deaf over the missing money when it was raised by the former governor of Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, Sanisu Lamido Sanusi, who is now the Emir of Kano.
The former military dictator turned democrat made it clear that his administration would not condone stealing of public funds meant to provide jobs for the teeming jobless Nigerian youth.
“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..” he said.
