Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State has formally written the Federal Government, requesting that the £4.2 million received from United Kingdom as part of Ibori loot be either returned to Delta State or be used specifically for projects in Delta State.
Okowa revealed this Wednesday, March 24, when he appeared on Politics Today, a Channels Television programme.
He noted that he has made two suggestions to the federal government on the matter.
His words: “On our part, I have spoken with the attorney-general of the federation. My attorney-general went to have a meeting with him. We are working, and we are likely to come on the same page. We have written a formal letter of protest to Mr. President.”
He said his administration was not ready to drag President Muhammadu Buhari led federal government to court over the matter.
“I know that the president will do the right thing”, he concluded.
