“You want to use over N700 billion to renovate a dead refinery, because Port Harcourt Refinery is dead. Not only moribund but dead.

“Are you using $1.5 billion for the embalmment of the dead refinery? Because this money is going to be spent on embalmment of a dead refinery.

“When will this stealing stop in this country? When will this inconsiderate corruption stop in this country?

“As anti-corruption network, as person of patriotism, we call on President Muhammadu Buhari to immediately reverse this satanic and wicked nefarious decision.

“And those who are ready to benefit from this stealing, we are waiting and we are watching.

“We have no other country to call our own and we will not keep quite in the midst of this corruption. We have never had it so bad in this country, you want to use, over N700 billion for the embalment of a dead body, a dead Refinery.”
