Former Police Affairs Minister, Dr. Ibrahim Yakubu Lame, said over $400bn was stolen by corrupt public office holders in Nigeria in the last 30 years.

The Bauchi governorship aspirant on the platform of the All Progressives Congress, APC, said the monies were siphoned at all levels of governments to the detriment of majority of Nigerians.

Lame, who spoke on Thursdday at the distribution of vehicles to 20 local government chapters of the APC in the state, posited that the siphoned funds would have adequately addressed the unemployment drift in the country and completely arrested poverty among Nigerians.

?The money could have also been utilised to check the security challenges bedeviling the nation, provide quality education to Nigerians, efficient healthcare delivery services, and gainful employment to each and every Nigerian?, he added.

The politician stated that the recent governorship election in Osun State was a litmus test for the forthcoming general elections, expressing optimism that the APC would in matter of months capture power at the centre and more states.

On the political strength and voting pattern of the state, he said: ?Here in Bauchi State, it is not the politics of Katagum, Bauchi or Central zone, but what is needed is the patriotic zeal of the people to salvage the state and the nation from want, disease and ignorance, as well as provide good governance, employment, and raise the living standard of the people generally.?

The aspirant further assured local government party chieftains that he was in close contact with APC executives in the state to perfect his formal declaration for the governorship ambition within the next few weeks.


The vehicles were distributed to the local government chapters of the All Progressives Congress, APC, along with campaign materials and monetary allowances for the electioneering campaign personnel.
