Only Buhari can tell me to shut up, Itse Sagay replies APC

EFCC discovers new Diezani’s loot on a daily basis – Sagay


The Chairman, Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption, Prof. Itse Sagay has stated that the Economic and Financial Crimes commission, EFCC, recovers stolen money from the former minister of Petroleum Resources, Diezani Alison-Madueke on daily basis.

Sagay told the former ruling Peoples Democratic Party to remember that embattled Alison-Madueke was one of its products.

He was reacting to the 19th anniversary celebration of the party.

He, therefore, called on the former ruling party to celebrate it with sober reflection instead of boasting about its “achievements.”

He said the Buhari administration had recovered nearly a trillion naira alone this year from officials who served under the PDP.

The PACAC chairman asked the PDP to apologise to Nigerians and turn a new leaf as this was the only way to regain the confidence of Nigerians.

Sagay added, “I am disappointed in the PDP. If they are celebrating 19 years, they should celebrate with caution and give the nation an assurance that they would not bring such negative impact on our nation again and they have turned a new leaf.

“Yes, President Obasanjo was the one who proposed the establishment of the EFCC and the ICPC? After Nuhu Ribadu left the EFCC, what became of the EFCC? These people just neutralised these agencies and turned this country into an ATM from which they kept on withdrawing money until there was nothing left.

“So, they destroyed our economy; their greed was overwhelming. If you look at Diezani for instance, there is no day that goes by that money is not recovered from her. In Thursday’s papers, it was reported that the EFCC had recovered about half a trillion naira from these people.”
