A cross-section of Nigerians has reacted to the recovery of N65,548,000m by operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Wednesday from Zamfara office of INEC.
EFCC took away four ‘Ghana-must-go’ bags suspected to contain money from the Zamfara INEC office on Wednesday, in continuation of its investigation over alleged nonpayment of ad hoc staff who conducted the 2019 general election.
The recovery has stirred reactions from Nigerians on social media.
Here are some comments gathered by TONTREND from Twitter:
