In line with the trending news of planned distribution of “Abacha Loot to poor Nigerians,” a Chieftain of the All Progressive Congress (APC) in Bauchi State – Ali Ibrahim Ningi – has expressed so much displeasure in the proposed plan to disburse the “Abacha loot to POOR NIGERIAN HOUSEHOLDS” instead of using the fund to fix more pressing needs in Nigeria.
He has described the idea as a clueless one and has blamed it on APC –led Administration’s lack of advisers: That is, someone with a good head should have atleast told the Federal Government that N5000 mapped out to “POOR NIGERIAN HOUSEHOLDS” will not solve the immediate poverty needs in those households, let alone alleviating it completely.
Ningi had mentioned better avenues where the Abacha Loot could be properly utilised such as the Health Sector, Education or even improving the N-Power programme.
“Yes, I listened to the programme aired by international radio with shock if it’s true that the Federal Government has decided to give Nigerians N5,000 out of the Abacha loot.
“It’s expected that the Federal Government should channel the funds to education, health and the N-Power programme apparently to cushion the adverse poverty among Nigerians as was the system during Buhari’s days as PTF boss where drugs were procured through the agency.
“Visit our education sector at all levels and received shocking conditions; same apply to the health sector with absence of drugs apart from youths who are now streets touts linked to poverty. As such, the Federal Government should kindly discard any ill-advised plan to disburse the Abacha loot to Nigerians just because of the 2019 elections.”
