Wife to late military dictator and head of state, slams the Federal Government for lying against her late husband.
Former First lady, Maryam Abacha, has described as lies reports of the Federal government discovering monies allegedly stolen by her husband while he was in office.
Mrs Abacha who granted an interview recently to commemorate his 22nd death anniversary, said it is evil to speak ill of the dead. In her words,
“How come this man was not a thief until he died? What is this amount of money after 22 years you say oh we have found this amount of money and we’re bringing it back? It is a shame to tell lies on a dead man! It is a shame to tell lies on your leader. If he had done wrong, God knows. If other people are putting the wrong on him, it is a matter of time.
They will kneel down like America is kneeling down now. Anybody that is evil will kneel down just like this corona has come to shut this world.” the Nation quotes her as saying.
According to Mrs. Abacha, her husband helped a lot of people who no longer greet her again.
“He worked in Kano and he planted Kano people, but there are people he helped a lot but they are not even greeting me now for no reason. They just hate us. But why? It is Haram and Allah is watching us.” she said.
