The letter reads in part: “Your Excellency, President Muhammadu Buhari

As madact Ambassador on making A Difference Against Corruption Today, it has expanded my passion to speak. It saddens my heart that after 58 years, all sectors of our social and economic lives have failed.

“Over the years, millions of graduates continue to wade through trying times, while creative youths, artisans and our young women have been denied the true values of nationhood. Self-esteem has been destroyed. Many weep and sleep on a daily basis without a meal

“Sir, the funds recovered from looters in the past few years of your government is 739 billion Naira, Abacha returned loot is 322,000,000 dollars equivalent of 112billion Naira, totalling 851 billion Naira.

“Why was the Abacha returned loots shared? Who are the beneficiaries? Why wasn’t the returned and recovered loots used to finance some of the basic social problems like electricity, repairing our refineries and creating jobs for our youths, build a world-class hospital that can reduce the travelling expenses of Nigerians travelling abroad for medical treatment?

“Sir, if our hospitals were well equipped, you won’t be involved in foreign trips for medical checkups. When you eventually leave office, which hospital would be standard enough to offer you these services and to other Nigerians?

“Who are the looters that returned the said amount? How come they are not facing criminal charges or in jail?

“How come politicians involved in 232 billion Naira cases of corruption are working for your re-election? Is it only those that are with you, that are the presumed saints?

“Your Excellency, Nigeria’s budgets for the last three years of your government are 2016 (6.07 trillion), 2017 (7.298trillion), 2018 (9.12 trillion).

“Total 22.488 trillion Naira, yet we do not have access to ordinary clean water, with escalated hunger in the land. In 2015, Nigerian was ranked third among the poorest nations index but today in 2018, Nigeria is now ranked number one in the world overtaking India.
