In his last article, former CBN governor, Charles Soludo said that at least N30 trillion of Nigeria's money has 'either been stolen or unaccounted for, or grossly mismanaged over the last few years' under Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala as Finance Minister. He released a statement today saying that money doesn't include about N8.6 trillion the African Union claims is stolen from Nigeria annually. His statement after the cut...

I STAND BY MY STATEMENTS: Chukwuma Charles SOLUDO, CFR
1. My attention has been drawn to statements credited to the Hon. Minister of Finance and Coordinating Minister of the Economy, Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, in response to my latest article and call for a structured debate on the issues. According to the report, she no longer wants to join issues with me. In the circumstance of the moment, I therefore withhold parts two and three of my promised three-part response.

2. Let me also state for the avoidance of doubt that I stand by every statement I made in the two articles viz: (1) “Buhari Vs Jonathan: Beyond the Elections”; and (2) “Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala and the Missing Trillions”. In particular, I insist that over N30 trillion has either been stolen or unaccounted for, or grossly mismanaged over the last few years. This figure does not include the estimated $40.9 billion (N8.6 trillion at parallel market exchange rate or nearly two years’ Federal Government budget) which the African Union’s (AU) recent report claims to be “stolen” from Nigeria each year.

3. I wish to thank Nigerians all over the world who have been contributing to this timely debate. This is election time and it is expected that some vested interests will either choose to live in denial or attempt to politicise the issues. But from the debate so far, I am convinced that our economic management won’t be the same again. Once our managers know that the citizens will rigorously and vigorously challenge them to account, the welfare of the citizens will be better for it. Whoever wins has his job cut out for him, and to the extent that this debate has challenged the respective teams to seriously re-examine their blueprints to guarantee the security and prosperity of every Nigerian, my objective is accomplished. I love my country Nigeria, and as I said before, I won’t keep quiet again.

Once more, Nigeria must survive and prosper beyond Buhari or Jonathan!

The only response l expected from Okonjo ıs to accept the Debate challenge and clear Soludo allegations.
But l doubt it since she has refused or fooled herself in the present of the committee. l lost my respect for her.

NOI, is a coward, the best thing for her to do is to resign from her appointment according to all this allegations against her which she can not defend, The president of Petrobras, One of the leading petroleum company in the world resigned yesterday due to embezzlement allegations which is not up to the allegations again NOI. she resign to save her image, why can't NOI do this to save her own image if truly she is innocent about all the allegations. Again if i am in Nigeria, I would have staged a rally calling for her resignation, People like her will only kill the future of our unborn children, They have nothing to offer, And anybody supporting her and other thieves who are still in Govt. i know they will pay for it sooner or latter. I am not in Nigeria, And frankly speaking most of my families are not in Nigeria, But i love Nigeria now. But i love Nigeria and i want change so that the future of that country will be bright for my unborn children coming after me...
If things continue this way, I fear their will be nothing good to talk about in our beloved country anymore. I pray God bless Nigeria and God bless me in all i do...
