Lagos - The All Progressives Congress in the Rivers State welcomed the announcement by President Muhammadu Buhari to investigate and recover the funds allegedly looted by the immediate past administration of Dr Goodluck Jonathan.
“We received with great joy news of the resolution by President Buhari to go after those who stole Nigeria blind and virtually grounded the country’s economy," Rivers APC Chairman, Dr Davis Ibiamu Ikanya, said.
"For six years we shouted ourselves hoarse that Jonathan’s administration was the most corrupt in the history of this nation and sadly nobody believed us but the recent revelations have proved us right."
Ikanya added, “If not by the grace of God and the resolve of Nigerians to vote out that visionless government, the ship of our nation would have been grounded by now.”

Ikanya, speaking from Port Harcourt, said the impending recovery of stolen funds and stoppage of systemic leakages as the beginning of the journey towards building the ideal Nigerian nation.
He said the ruling party commended the governments of USA and Britain for supporting the APC Government in its efforts to recover Nigeria’s looted funds stashed in foreign banks by “agents of wickedness.”
Ikanya pleaded with Nigerians to see reason and support the administration of President Buhari in his efforts to clean the rot of the past administration and put our nation on a sound footing.
“The next three months may be hard as predicted by Mr. President but we wish to assure our fellow countrymen and women that these are necessary steps and for the good of our dear country,” Ikanya said.
