Kazaure said this while condemning the set of leaders who governed Nigeria since the birth of democracy and also accused them of sabotaging the country.
A former Minister of Works, Ambassador Ibrahim Musa Kazaure, has stated that with the way he served Nigeria, he deserves to be imprisoned.
Kazaure who said this in an interview on a Radio France International programme, condemned the set of leaders who governed Nigeria since the birth of democracy and also accused them of sabotaging the country.
The former ambassador to Saudi Arabia also revealed that stealing in the country is on a very high scale and the poor masses have been on the receiving end.
He added that despite the human and material resources the country is blessed with, it is shameful that no sector can be said to be doing well.
“Even me talking to you, what we did to Nigeria, we deserve to be jailed.
“I used to say, I, Ibrahim Musa Kazaure, we have cheated Nigeria and her poor masses. To tell you the truth, we are all the same. What we did during our time wasn’t what we should have done because some of us got the opportunity and some didn’t.
“Not (just) this government, all of us have done nothing. If we have done something, Nigeria wouldn’t be the way it is today because we have the money and manpower but see what these small countries have turned to. They have become tourist sites to Nigerian. It’s shameful.
“It is in Nigeria that the education system is still going on strike. Then when are we going to develop? I am not going to occupy any seat in Nigeria even if they will give me for free. Whatever position one will offer.
“I challenge everyone in Nigeria, even the president, go and check. I have spoken the truth. Whoever stole Nigeria’s money should return it. I told Buhari that whoever stole should be arrested, including myself, we should return it if proven.”
