Ibrahim Musa Kazaure, the former Minister of Works, has declared that he deserved to be imprisoned for the way he served Nigeria.
Kazaure blasted Nigerian politicians who have led the country since its birth as a democracy in an interview with Radio France International, accusing them of wrecking the country.
Larceny is pervasive in Saudi Arabia, according to the former ambassador, with the underprivileged masses bearing the brunt of it. He went on to remark that, despite the country’s large population and plentiful natural resources, no sector is operating well.
Kazaure stated, “
“Even as I speak to you, we deserve to be imprisoned for what we did to Nigeria.”
“I, Ibrahim Musa Kazaure, used to argue that we had defrauded Nigeria and her poor people. We are all the same, to tell you the truth. Because some of us had the opportunity and others did not, what we did during our time wasn’t what we should have done.
“It’s not just this government; we’ve all done nothing.” Nigeria would not be the way it is today if we had done something because we have the money and manpower, but look at what these small countries have become. For Nigerians, these have become tourism destinations. It’s a disgrace.
“The Nigerian school system is still on strike. So, when are we going to progress? I will not take any seat in Nigeria, even if it is offered to me for free. Regardless of the employment that is offered.
“I challenge everyone in Nigeria to check, even the president.” I’ve said it as it is. Whoever took Nigeria’s money should be held accountable. I told Buhari that anyone stole, including myself, should be arrested, and that if proven, we should restore it.”
