The presidential candidate of the Young Progressives Party, YPP, Kingsley Moghalu has stated that politicians use dead people to steal money.
This was in reaction to a claim by Bauchi Governor, Bala Mohammed who recently accused his predecessor, Mohammed Abubakar, of spending N2.3billion on buying shroud and other Islamic burial materials.
The governor made this known through his spokesman, Ladan Salihu, who revealed that the money was sent between January and May 2019.
Reacting to the news, Moghalu tweeted:
“An aide to former Bauchi State Gov Mohammed Abubakar has reportedly said Bauchi didn’t spend N2.3 billion for burial materials in a state cemetery as alleged by activists, [“only”] N1.2 billion. Expensive dead people indeed. Some politicians steal even in the name of the dead!”
