Video Interview: People Say That We Are Rich But We Are Not Rich – Maryam Sani Abacha
“People say we’re very rich but we’re not, we’re not rich, I am not a rich person. When I was in the Villa I didn’t look for money, I stayed there to help people, so by the time I came out I didn’t come out with money”, those were the words of Maryam Abacha, wife of former Military head of State, late General Sani Abacha in a recent interview.
It is ironic to note that while she claims they are not rich, the Nigerian Government have been receiving billions of Naira from foreign countries as money belonging to the former Head of State stashed in their countries.
In very recent times, the United States Government has refunded to the Nigerian Government, millions of dollars belonging to the late dictator.
