“A lot of highly placed Nigerians are not willing to support AMCON because most of those people are the ones that have taken this money from the banks and of course you know the government came in to set up AMCON to save banks from getting down”.
“But unfortunately, from what is happening, AMCON is finding it very difficult because those people are highly placed Nigerians, they try to frustrate AMCON’s effort through the judiciary and that is what we are looking.”

“Unfortunately, they are facing a lot of frustration. We will do our best in the interest of our country and protecting the economy of this country and to support AMCON to succeed”.
