Immediate past Minister of Interior, Comrade Abba Moro has debunked recent comments that he was involved in N21 billion scam while in office, saying he was not arrested as speculated.
Moro said those who rushed to his residence in Abuja to verify the allegation were surprised to see him in the comfort of his home.
The former minister, who spoke at a reception in his honour at his country home, Ugbokolo, Okpokwu Local Government Area of Benue State yesterday, said the peddlers of the rumour were only out to cast aspersions on him since throughout his tenure as minister the ministry did not even record budget of N10 billion.
He accepted responsibility for every action and inaction of his subordinates, particularly during the Nigeria Immigration Service, NIS, recruitment exercise which led to the death of 16 people.
He, however, said the job of providing employment was not yet done in Nigeria until the last person on the street is employed, until there is 24 hours electricity, until all average Nigerians have access to three square mills and shelter over their heads.
The former polytechnic lecturer said Nigeria remained a theatre where everybody had to contribute, adding that whatever President Muhammadu Buhari was doing affects everybody just like the ones former President Goodluck Jonathan did affected everybody.
He took a swipe at the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, members who defected to the All Progressives Congress, APC, describing them as fair weather politicians, even as he urged current members of the party to remain steadfast as the party would soon bounce back since it had discovered its mistakes.
The former minister particularly vowed to do everything within his legal powers to ensure that Hon James Ejembi, the representative of Okpokwu at the state legislature, answers for betraying the PDP during the election of leaders in the Assembly.
