With the way I served Nigeria, I deserve to be locked up – Ambassador Ibrahim Musa Kazaure, former Minister of Works.

Former Minister of Works Ibrahim Musa Kazaure has stated that he deserved to be imprisoned for the manner he served Nigeria.


In an interview with Radio France International, Kazaure attacked the Nigerian politicians who have led the country since its inception as democracy and accused them of destroying the country.


The former ambassador to Saudi Arabia also stated that thievery is rampant in the nation, with the underprivileged masses bearing the brunt of it. 
He went on to say that, despite the country’s abundant people and material resources, it is disgraceful that no sector is performing well.


Kazaure stated;

“Even me talking to you, what we did to Nigeria, we deserve to be jailed.

“I used to say, I, Ibrahim Musa Kazaure, we have cheated Nigeria and her poor masses. To tell you the truth, we are all the same. What we did during our time wasn’t what we should have done because some of us got the opportunity and some didn’t.

“Not (just) this government, all of us have done nothing. If we have done something, Nigeria wouldn’t be the way it is today because we have the money and manpower but see what these small countries have turned to. They have become tourist sites to Nigerian. It’s shameful.

“It is in Nigeria that the education system is still going on strike. Then when are we going to develop? I am not going to occupy any seat in Nigeria even if they will give me for free. Whatever position one will offer.

“I challenge everyone in Nigeria, even the president, go and check. I have spoken the truth. Whoever stole Nigeria’s money should return it. I told Buhari that whoever stole should be arrested, including myself, we should return it if proven.”
