Sir, you have been retired for many years. May we know a little bit of your career?
(ID). Well, after we have been pushed out of power in 1975, I found myself in a very difficult position. My farms in Kafin Maiyaki and Dan Hassan were confiscated for no reason. My houses which I built with a loan from government were also confiscated. In short I was left with nothing except my life and myself. And from my little investigation, they wanted to know how much I had in my bank accounts. I had two accounts, one is personal and the other is my farm’s account. In my personal account I had only N2,000 while in my farm’s account I had N9,000, this is mainly because I have sold some quantity of wheat to late Alhaji Uba Ringim. That happened in 1975. Apart from these N11,000 I had no other money and I have no other accounts elsewhere.
