If every suspect has a whistle to blow and is therefore taken to the President, I don’t think the President will have any other job to do. “Apart from the protocol and status, it is even insulting to the country. He can talk to the EFCC, ICPC and Police and if he wants a higher authority, he can meet with the Inspector-General of Police. So, he does not need to get to that level at all because nobody is going to allow that.”On the claim that Maina’s lifewas in danger, Sagay said: “The police are going to protect him; he should go to the police or the EFCC. They are the best protectors, they have armed officers, and they can keep him in a safe room or safe house. “I don’t think that is going to be a problem. He can easily call them and then negotiate how he would arrive there and be kept safe.”Meanwhile, Senate president, Bukola Saraki, alleged that the reason foreign nations are reluctant to return looted funds to Nigeria was because of the bad management of them.The Punch reports that the Senate president made these remarks at the ‘Strategic Retreat on Tracking the Progress of Anti-Corruption Bills in the National Assembly’ in Abuja on Tuesday, November 28.Saraki alleged that proceeds of corruption recovered by the government were being looted by anti-corruption agencies which was affecting return of foreign loots.Nigerians want PDP back in 2019 – Goodluck Jonathan declares at PDP Caucus Meeting on NAIJ.com TV
