She, however called on President Buhari to take action in order not to lose the confidence of Nigerians.

She said: “President Buhari should ensure that whatever money the government gets, he should highlight and inform Nigerians on what the money will be used for. It will give Nigerians hope. He should be transparent on the way he handles people’s affairs.

”The commonwealth we are recovering from looters should be used for the common good of the people.”

Ojikutu who served as deputy to former Lagos state governor, late Michael Otedola said: “Everybody is cutting corners because the government is not doing what they are supposed to be doing.
