“All those 419 rice pyramids will not help Nigeria. How can you explain to me that you pack 5,000 sacks of rice, and put them in a pyramid, and say you have done something.
“Those people are deceiving you. From the Central Bank, to all those other people, they are deceitful. They are 419; they are telling you lies.”
