Allow Nigerians feel impact of funds recovered from looters – Ex-ICPC boss tells Buhari
Pioneer Chairman of the Independent Corrupt Practices and other related offences Commission, ICPC, Justice Mustapha Akanbi, has requested President Muhammadu Buhari, to allow Nigerians feel the benefit of monies recovered from corrupt public officials, warning that if not, hungry Nigerians will be angry with the government.
Speaking at the commissioning of a library complex built by Mustapha Akanbi Foundation in Ilorin, Kwara state, the retired president of the appellate court called on Buhari to urgently tackle poverty and improve on the economy for the benefit of Nigerians.
“So, we should do our best. I know he is trying. They are collecting money from those who have taken bribes and the rest. But let us see the effect in the lives of the people,” he cautioned.
While urging the present government to prefer better management of economy to borrowing, Akanbi said, “For me I do not believe in borrowing. I do not borrow money and I do not encourage my children to borrow money. I do not know how they make it.
“Even now that we are in recession, I have cut down what I give to people.
“Didn’t we even beg that they should write off our debt? I do not know the facts that determines the issue of borrowing.
“I know if you leave according to your means, you will not be in trouble.
“Even Buhari should prefer better management of economy than borrowing. Everybody should prefer better management.
“We should please ask our president, whom we voted for, to really find a way of boosting the economy of the country. A hungry man is an angry man and a bitter man. If the money they are collecting, in fact I am looking for whether I will get a telephone call to the vice-president as a lawyer that by next year, when they will start campaign for election, if people are hungry they will not be happy
