The political activist tweeted: “Gen Muhammadu Buhari should resign as Petroleum Minister and President of this country. Under his watch, as he has failed, Nigeria cannot breathe anymore. I turn the oil-producing community and Niger Delta Region at large to protest this current looting.”

“This is strictly what the musical Prophet Fela called ‘Authority stealing pass armed robbery’. We are disappointed that corruption has eaten deep into Nigeria. The fight against corruption and insecurity was only one of these campaign gimmicks General Buhari utilized in deceiving Nigerians.”



“All those that are a part of this $800million must be delivered to book. This case mustn’t be swept under the carpet. The 9th Assembly must probe these allegations.”

The political activities called on the international community to put a visa ban on all those involved within the alleged looting.

“I turn the International communities, US, UK, all should place Visa ban on these looters and their families. this is often how they will help Nigeria to support the fight against corruption. No government has looted like Buhari’s government. Our security, educational and healthcare system have failed, and poverty, hunger, unemployment are now friends to the system.”



“This administration has dented Nigeria’s image internationally. they're the worst in terms of looting. Once you loot public funds you'll be celebrated under Gen Buhari’s watch. Despite all of this, even Magu will go scoot free, a bit like others. they’re practically the model of Yahoo boys.”, Timi Frank stated.
