Olusegun Obasanjo, the Nigeria’s former president has expressed his dissatisfaction against those asking him to make account for the loot recovered from Abacha, calling them illiterate and stupid.
In an interview over the weekend, the former president said he does not keep account and all loot recovered were sent to Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, while being reported also to the Minister of Finance. He added that his job was to write for help to recover the money.
Obasanjo said, “They said the money recovered from Abacha, I should account for it. What stupidity! The man who asked for it, the man who gave the judgement or who answered them are all stupid, with due respect.
“Every penny that comes out of it went to CBN, so if they want to know what happened to the money, they should call CBN governor or call the Minister of Finance.
“But again, it shows ignorance, total ignorance, which is lacking and you wonder, are these people educated? They can also approach the man who helped us in recovering process to give the list of money recovered and where he took it.”
