“So, for us to have peace, there must be justice otherwise we are going to have the peace of the graveyard and there can be no justice if one person can pocket $6bn.”

“Last week, someone told us and this was an official report that in one federal parastatal, the NPA, they admitted to collecting N162bn in one year. They spent N160bn out of that and remitted N2bn to the Federal Government. Is that justice? Can someone plead in defence of this kind of abuse?”
