Obanikoro who spoke in Abuja on Tuesday maintained that the two transactions were legitimate and wondered why a country that had been faced with similar challenges of liberating its citizens and engaged in similar cash transactions in the past would subject another country that played a key role in its favour would intentionally embarrass that same country facing a similar challenge.
“I want to believe that there must be a change. What South Africa did to us is unacceptable, its not fair, its not just and it was unnecessary. Here is a nation that stood by them during their time of need. If there’s any country that should understand the need to use cash to procure weapons, it is South Africa."
