“The fight against corruption, as it is now, is about recovery and arrest. If the government says the money recovered under (the administration of Goodluck) Jonathan is not enough to service the economy, then, we should move to (the late Umaru) Yar’Adua and (Olusegun) Obasanjo administrations too; move to (Abubakar) Abdulsalami, (the late Sani) Abacha, (Ibrahim) Babangida and Buhari himself as a military ruler then; and to Shehu Shagari of the Second Republic,” he said according to Punch.

“We must go after the old thieves irrespective of the political parties they belong to now, as the government is going after the most recent ones. For example, there was a Senate committee that probed the Independent Power Project where it was said that over $16bn was looted and we have not seen anything done to the revelations made by the former Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, who is now the Emir of Kano, Lamido Sanusi, over the $20bn allegedly missing from the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation accounts under Jonathan, etc.”

Meanwhile, Senator Dino Melaye has urged Buhari to grant amnesty to looters of public funds who are willing to return the stolen money within six months.
