- Abacha did many good for Nigeria, Al Mustapha has said
- According to him, some people deliberately painted the late general black
- Mustapha also added that Abacha's good works for the country will not be forgotten forever
Late General Sani Abacha did so many good things for Nigeria, says Hamza Al Mustapha. According to him, only God can reward the late general.
Going further, Al Mustapha claimed his late boss was deliberately painted black by some disgruntled elements despite all his good works.
He disclosed this in Kano during the 22nd commemoration of Abacha on Monday, June 9, The Nation reports.
He added that what Abacha has done to Nigeria will forever not be forgotten in the annals of history and generations yet unborn.
Mustapha said Abacha met only N200m dollars in the foreign reserve but saved over $9 before his death.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that Buba Galadima, one of Nigeria's foremost politicians, has revealed the alleged reasons why Abacha stashed billions of dollars belonging to the Nigerian government out of the country.
He said the late military dictator was advised to save some money outside the country by some of his colleague presidents around the world so there won't be panic if the US eventually block Nigeria's account.
Among those who advised Abacha, according to Galadima, were Saddam Hussein and Muammar Gaddafi.
"If they say Abacha was a monster, my answer is, at least he held the country together and everybody knew you could not trample on our laws without being dealt with," he added.
Legit.ng had also reported that popular Nollywood actor, Yul Edochie, has again lent his voice to the political issues in the country.
In his tweet on Friday, May 8, the famous actor questions Nigerian leaders who loot the nation without remorse, asking them if they would die if they make the country work well.
He asked them further if they belong to any cult whose oath stops them from making the nation work through qualitative developments.
Yul said this as he tweeted a screenshot of one Ohimai Godwin Amaize's tweet who commented about the recently recovered Abacha's loot which is in the tune of $311 million (N121,290,000,000).
In the picture, the person said if N1 billion of the loot was allocated to each of the country's public hospitals, there will still be enough left.
