Sani: Corrupt ex-PDP members pretending to be Buhari’s friends will soon be prosecuted

Shehu Sani, chairman of senate committee on foreign and domestic debt, has said that corrupt people parading themselves as President Mohammadu Buhari’s friends would soon be interrogated and prosecuted.
Speaking in an interview with journalists on Monday in Kaduna while receiving a group of women who paid him solidarity visit, Sani, who is also the vice chairman of senate committee on foreign affairs, said some of the corrupt people are members of the All Progressives Congress ( APC ) who had their political upbringing in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP ) and whose hands were soiled by corruption.
He disclosed that over $200bn stolen by some Nigerians was being stashed away in Dubai, the United Arab Emirate (UAE).
According to him, any corrupt person warming himself close to Buhari for cover would be exposed, investigated and prosecuted.
“Corrupt Nigerians have stashed unbelievable amount of monies in Dubai alone in the name of estates acquisition, purchase of exotic houses and business partnership in the last 16 years,” he said.
“Some have stashed raw cash. This is as a rresult the US, and Europe making conditions for laundering of money into their countries very difficult. These crooks have now found it conducive to use the Middle East and South East Asia as their destinations.
“They use names of their cronies, family members and friends to siphon public funds out of Nigeria. Some of them are APC members who had their political upbringing in the then ruling PDP where they soiled their hands in the corruption pot.
“Sooner than later, those who are parading themselves as Buhari’s friends but are corrupt will be interrogated, prosecuted because the president does not know friend or relation as far as the fight against corruption is concerned
“It was based on the information on the quantity and quality of the assets of corrupt Nigerians that President Buhari had to sign that agreement with UAE at Abu Dabi. I can tell you that it was a smart and patriotic move,” he said.
“Let me advise the president to steer clear of hypocrites, because it is better to live with an enemy than hypocrites because hypocrites derive joy from stabbing one’s back.
“Over $200 billion is stashed away from Nigeria to Dubai alone. This may be the monies stolen over the past 20 years. I am not talking about estates and bonds and other securities bought with Nigeria’s stolen money. Buhari is going to recover all these monies and assets with the help of UAE.
“If you notice now, since the agreement, some of the corrupt persons are now rushing to Dubai to effect changes in the ownership of the ill-gotten assets, but they are just wasting their time.
“President Buhari needs the support of all Nigerians to wipe out corruption from the country. The president is on rescue mission. He needs our support.
“We cannot sit down idly and watch people sabotage Buhari; and I can tell you that since Buhari went to Dubai, there have been three attempts to sabotage his government.
“The first one was that they planted a story in newspapers that there was crisis in Buhari’s government because he went to Dubai. The second one was that they planted fake list of Nigerians that have property in Dubai, while we were waiting for the original list of those who have houses in Dubai. And the third one was to sponsor foreign media to discredit Buhari’s economic policies.”
