If the said funds were stolen from other sectors of the economy, that will be understandable.

How mean and heartless can Nigerians be? Thousands of Children and women are dying of hunger in various IDPs.

Yet, the SGF found no other people to steal from other than these poor battered folks.

We consider this the height of administrative recklessness.
