Falana Warns President Buhari

Femi Falana, the famous human rights activist and Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), has warned President Muhammadu Buhari over his relationship with the G7 countries.

He named this affiliation a ‘romance’ and called on the president to be cautious.

Felana spoke in Lagos on June 14 as one of the keynote speakers at the 2nd annual national conference of The Companion, an association of Muslim men in business and the professions.

Falana defined the G7 as “a gang of seven designed to invade economies and destroy the people.”

He asked Buhari not to give in to the G7’s ideas; rather, he should come back to the people who reposed their confidence in him to lead them.

The lawyer continued that the president should avoid using money from any world agency to run his government “but should block the leakages and recover stolen money back to the government purse.”

Falana underlined the need for Buhari to ask questions about the money recovered from the late General Sani Abacha, which he described as “the most successful loot recovery from leaders who have stolen from public funds around the world.”

He added that $3.2 billion out of the $5billion supposedly stolen by Abacha had been recovered so far “but unfortunately, the money is being re-looted.”
