Governor of Delta, Ifeanyi Okowa, 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 when he appeared on Politics Today, a Channels Television programme. Commenting on the matter during the interview, 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 litten 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.”
He said if the money cannot be sent to Delta, it should be spent on projects in the state. Okowa also noted that his government does not believe in getting the money back through legal action.
