The government of Delta state has protested against the choice of the federal to form use of the loot recovered from ex-governor James Ibori.
The Governor of Delta State Ifeanyi Okowa while speaking with Channels Television on Wednesday revealed that his government has sent a protest letter to President Muhammadu Buhari over the difficulty .
A few weeks ago, the united kingdom committed to returning the £4.2 million loot recovered from Ibori, a former Delta governor and his associates.
However, the attorney-general of the federation, Abubakar Malami, insisted the cash should attend the federal and not Delta state.
Commenting on the matter, Okowa said: “On our part, I even have spoken with the attorney-general of the federation. My attorney-general visited have a gathering with him. We are working, and that we are likely to return on an equivalent page. we’ve written a proper letter of protest to Mr President.
“Ours is to convince the federal to understand that the cash need to return to Delta.”
Okowa also suggested that if the cash can’t be sent to Delta State, it should be spent on projects within the State.
