Jang tasks Buhari on recovered loot
Delta NBA chairman seeks Dasuki’s release
A former Governor of Plateau State, Jonah Jang has urged President Mohammadu Buhari to disclose the amount of looted funds that has been recovered.
He urged the president to be transparent and sincere in the fight against corruption, adding that Nigerians have the right to know what the Federal Government would do with the money.
Jang, a senator representing Plateau North, made the appeal yesterday at a town hall meeting he organised to give account of his stewardship. According to him, the silence of the All Progressives Congress (APC)-led government was a negation of its change mantra.
He said: “It is disheartening that when the Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) Ibrahim Magu, appeared before the Senate, he could not give an account of how much has been recovered.
“Our government should stop treating us as illiterates. It is unfortunate that people don’t ask questions, because some of those who stole our money are in this administration. But, nobody is talking about them except those in opposition who are being harassed and treated anyhow.”
