‘Diezani’s loot can build six world class airports’

THE stolen funds allegedly traced to former Petroleum Minister Mrs. Diezani Alison-Madueke could fund infrastructure growth, Buhari Media Support Group (BMSG) said yesterday in Abuja.

A statement by its Chairman, Mr. Austin Braimoh and Secretary, Mr. 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 was enough to have funded agricultural projects that would have generated employment for Nigerian youths.

The BMSG added that the N47.2 billion and 487.5 million dollars in cash and property traced to Alison-Madueke by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) were also enough to complete the Lagos-Kano and Lagos-Calabar rail lines.
