Gov Okowa writes Buhari over Ibori’s loot

Delta state Governor Ifeanyi Okowa has revealed that his government has sent a protest letter to President Muhammadu Buhari over James Ibori’s loot recovered by the federal government.

Speaking on Politics Today, a Channels Television programme, on Wednesday while reacting to the attorney-general of the federation, Abubakar Malami, claim that the money should go to the federal government and not Delta state.

Okowa said: “On our part, I have spoken with the attorney-general of the federation. My attorney-general went to have a meeting with him. We are working, and we are likely to come on the same page. We have written a formal letter of protest to Mr President.

“Ours is to convince the federal government to know that the money ought to return to Delta.”

Okowa also suggested that if the money cannot be sent to Delta State, it should be spent on projects in the State.
