I have written to the Federal Ministry of Finance, my Commissioner has been there, as well as the Central Bank of Nigeria, nobody is ready to talk to us. We contacted the Honourable Minister, all the Directors at the Ministry of Finance, everybody is shying away from talking to us for the last 10 days now.
