Buhari Media Support Group (BMSG) yesterday said monies traced to former Petroleum Minister Mrs. Diezani Alison-Madueke, confirmed that she and her cronies wrecked Nigeria.
A statement by its Chairman, Austin Braimoh and Secretary, Cassidy Madueke, said government could build six world-class airports in each geo-political zone with part of the funds.
It added that the recovered loot could have funded agricultural projects that would have generated employment for Nigerian youths.
BMSG said the N47.2 billion and 487.5 million dollars in cash and property traced to Diezani would complete the Lagos-Kano and Lagos-Calabar rail lines government was seeking loans for.
The group called on Nigerians to join hands to condemn the massive looting of the nation’s treasury by officials of previous administrations.
It observed that Madueke and her associates, including Kola Aluko and Jide Omokore, were being tried by the US government for allegedly laundering over 1.7 billion dollars.
BMSG urged Nigerians to fight “psychotic and mindless” type of looting exhibited by indicted former government officials to send warning signal to serving ones.
“Though the fight against corruption was the foremost policy thrust of President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration, the fight might not attain maximum result unless Nigerians willingly resolve to join in it.
“This synergy is necessary so as to fight the art of looting and other forms of mismanagement in government.’’
