The presidential candidate of the African Action Congress (AAC), Omoyele Sowore, has said that his administration will probe past governments if elected into office in the 2023 presidential election.
Sowore stated this is a post on his verified Twitter handle, @yeleSowore, on Saturday.
Sowore said if the country could be retrieving money from late General Sanni Abacha, nothing should stop the country from retrieving from living government officials found culpable of looted funds.
“As President of Nigeria, I will probe and retrieve every penny stolen by past Nigerian rulers, those who have murdered innocents and deprived them of a bright future. If we could be retrieving money from dead and buried Sanni Abacha, we should retrieve from living legendary thieves.”
Retweeting Sowore’s tweet, his running mate, Haruna Magashi, said: “There will be no exemptions, all political thieves, past and present will be stripped under our administration. Stolen funds from Nigerians must be taken back.”
