“They promised Lagos-Kano rail line, they did not do it. We earn lesser than they had, we are doing it. Look at Lagos-Ibadan rail line, they had much money, they did not do it; we are doing it. Look at Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, we are doing it.
“We shall continue to arrest those who stole the nation’s money. They said we have not been able to convict anybody, we are not bothered, we shall continue to arrest and prosecute them. Let the case remain in court. We will continue to put them on trial even if court has not put them into jail.”
