Military chiefs stole more than politicians- PDP Caretaker committee chair, says Ahmed Makarfi

Chairman of PDP's National Caretaker committee, Ahmed Makarfi, says going by the revelations being made by the ongoing $2.1 billion arms deal probe, military chiefs stole more than the politicians that are being accused of corruption. Makarfi said this in a recent interview with Tribune
"Go to the $2.1billion arms money. $2.1billion is about N700 billion. If you total the money that was said to have been diverted into politics, it’s not even up to five per cent of this money.
So, you have 95 per cent that the military and the bureaucracy should account for. Give credit to President Muhammadu Buhari, he’s the only one looking at the military and the bureaucracy. And that is why when you see one General, what he is being charged for may be a totality of the majority of the politicians put together. And people don’t see that point.

They will only look at the politicians. Mind you, it is this military and bureaucracy that really knew right from the beginning that, that money was for arms. Those politicians were only given a task"he said
