The Attorney-General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, insisted, however, that the funds be directed to the federal government rather than Delta state.

“On our side, I have spoken with the Attorney-General of the Federation,” Okowa said in a statement. My attorney general went to see him for a meeting. We’re both working on something, and we’ll probably end up on the same page. We have written Mr. President a formal letter of protest.

“Our job is to persuade the federal government that the money should be returned to Delta.”

If the money cannot be sent to Delta State, Okowa proposed that it be spent on projects in the state.
