    • Build 6-lane expressway from Lagos to Kano, name it Abacha Loot Highway ― Rep
      Salam Bamidele

      Honourable Salam Bamidele has said that there is no end to what the Federal Government can do with the Abacha loot, this is just as he suggested that government could decide to build a six-lane express road from Lagos to Kano and call it “Abacha Loot Highway.”

      The Osun State Rep member representing Ede North/Ede South/Egbedero/Ejigbo Federal Constituency also lamented the ‘politics’ involved in selecting beneficiaries of social intervention programmes.

      In a bare-it-all interview with Sunday Vanguard, Bamidele said: “I believe strongly that the monies can be better applied in the manner that will make this generation and the generations coming to appreciate the enormity of the damage that was done to the Nigerian economy by those who looted the country and serve as a wake-up call to them to also be on their guard to the kind of person(s) they entrust the nation’s treasury too.

      “Monies that come from Abacha loot or any other recovery should be paid into a dedicated account and deployed particularly into the building of specific infrastructures.

      “For example, we can decide to build a six-lane express road from Lagos to Kano and call it ‘Abacha loot highway’ or whatever so that children who come in the next 20 years to 30 years will know that it is money looted by somebody that was brought back.

      “Where this government got it wrong, to my own mind, was to decide to apply those funds to what is called social intervention programmes,” Bamidele said.
