Ibori Loot: Okowa Finally Breaks Silence, Gives Buhari 2 Options

Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta state says his government has written a protest letter to President Muhammadu Buhari over the James Ibori loot recovered by Nigeria. 

Okowa said this on Wednesday, March 24, when he appeared on Politics Today, a Channels Television programme, The Cable reported.


Recall that the UK recently signed an agreement with the federal government to return £4.2 million loot recovered from Ibori, a former Delta governor. 

The federal government had announced that the money would be used to fund some legacy projects, including the Second Niger Bridge. 

However, commenting on the matter, Okowa said he has made two important suggestions to the government. 

According to him, the federal government can either return the money tp Delta or spend it on projects in the south-south state. 

His words: “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." 

Governor Okowa also noted that his government does not believe in dragging the federal government to court to get the money back.
