Mr. Atiku Abubakar, the People Democratic Party candidate for the February presidential election has disclosed that he will grant amnesty to looters when elected.
Abubakar disclosed this on Wednesday while appearing in a town hall meeting with his running mate Mr. Peter Obi.
The event was organized by ace journalist, Kadaria Ahmed.
Mr. Abubakar said he will give a dead line to looters to return all funds before sending those who refused to take the widow off the opportunity to face prosecution.
Abubakar said it would be better to create opportunity for looters to refund public funds in their possession.
It will do Nigeria good to get the looters invest the funds in the Nigeria.
“If you are to go and be prosecuting these people, you will still be prosecuting them and would not get the money,” Mr Abubakar said. He suggested that a similar scheme under past administration yielded over $4 billion.
