Alleged N80b theft: This is why everyone wants to be president, Peter Psquare says on AGF arrest
Peter Okoye of Psquare music group says the unfettered access to public funds by government appointees is the reason why everyone is jostling for presidency.
Peter said this in reaction to the arrest of the Accountant General of the Federation, Ahmed Idris.
Recall that Idris was suspended by the Minister of Finance, budget and National Planning, Zainab Ahmed.
His suspension came after the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, arrested him for allegedly diverting funds and laundering N80billion.
Reacting to the development, Peter expressed dismay at Idris’ action, he appealed to Nigerian leaders to have conscience.
According to him, siphoning of public funds seems to be the reason everyone is contesting to be the next President of Nigeria.
The 40-year-old musician said this via his Twitter page.
His tweet read: “Just one that was appointed by the President looted 80 billion! Ahhhh! No wonder everybody wants to be the PRESIDENT of Nigeria!
“Chisus! 80 Billion! Abeg make una dey try get conscience na!”
