Onnoghen: Even Dangote can’t forget $1m in his account — el-Rufai


Governor Nasir el-Rufai of Kaduna State has rubbished claim by suspended Justice Walter Onnoghen that he forgot to declare millions of dollar traced to him, saying not even Africa’s richest man, Aliko Dangote, can forget such huge sum in his bank account.

el-rufai stated this on Friday when he received in audience members of Coalition of Civil Society Organisations in the state who were protesting in support of Onnoghen’s suspension by President Muhammadu Buhari.

Addressing his guests, the governor said, “The case of Justice Onnoghen is the case in which somebody who has worked in government for past 20 years suddenly has millions of dollars in his account.

“He has admitted, but says he has forgotten about them.

“I want to express happiness to all of you for coming together to convey this very clear statement from the people of Kaduna State that in Kaduna we do not support corruption, in Kaduna we do not support injustice, in Kaduna State we are 100 per cent behind the integrity of our president.”
