The National TaskForce to Combat Illegal Importation of Small Arms, Ammunition and Light Weapons, has challenged the Federal Government to ensure the deportation of all the children of those who benefitted from the $2.1 billion arms deal wherever they are schooling abroad.
The organisation which called on Nigerians to stop evaluating President Muhammadu Buhari, within seven months in office, when he has not spent up to two years in office, described the critics as “either witches or wizards that want to bring him and his government down.”
The Director-General of NATFORCE and former Presidential candidate of African Liberation Party, Chief Emmanuel Osita Okereke, stated this in an interview with journalists in Abuja.
According to him, the administration of ex-President Goodluck Jonathan fell into the $2.1 billion arms deal trap because he was not getting the truth from the embattled former National Security Adviser, Col. Sambo Dasuki (retd) and ex-Comptroller-General of Nigerian Customs Service, Abdullahi Dikko.
He said, “I am now telling President Muhammadu Buhari, because he is a God-sent to fight for justice because God will protect him. I am begging Nigerians to give him the benefit of doubt. Buhari needs at least a year and six months before you can see his work. In two years, the true picture of his governance will show. Those evaluating Buhari within seven months when he has not spent a year in office are either witches or wizards that want to bring him and his government down.
“Anyone who was part of the $2.1 billion arms deal will vomit it. There is corruption in Nigeria and those who have stolen this money must return it. Those who stole money and sent their children to different schools abroad, while our education system in the country remains in shambles, will all return the money they stole
“I am begging President Muhammadu Buhari to give my company the contract to investigate the schools where their children are and deport them back to Nigeria for them to face the same problem that we are facing. They are citizens of this country and they do not need to travel anywhere. Those who have embezzled public funds should not be allowed to enjoy such benefits.”
Okereke recalled how he had told Jonathan that the security agents were not telling him the true picture of the security situation in the country because they were all alleged members of the Boko Haram Islamic sect.
The ALP ex-Presidential candidate alleged that, “They were part of the government and they were the ones giving the sect information. I am a straight forward person that was why they could not involve me in the fraud because I will never be a party to it. I knew the government was a very fraudulent one, Dasuki and others were all just looking for money.
“The problem was that Jonathan had no guts to fight against corruption and so when Muhammadu Buhari won the election, I knew there was a big problem. I validated all my petitions and forwarded it to him which he investigated. It was my petition that nailed all of them, that was why they wanted me dead. I do not believe any human being can kill me because they don’t know when I was born.
“My mother carried me in her womb for 13 months. I am 51-years old and I have never been to the hospital or administered a drip since I was born. So I know God loves me, specially that is why I do not tell lies or deceive people. That was why Okereke became a bandit before the security agencies because they were paid to get rid of me and NATFORCE.”
