After thanking Nigerians, the government and the Police, she also narrates how her mother suffered in the hands of her kidnappers for 5 days. Thank God mama is back.

� I can�t give all the details because we don�t want to compromise on-going investigations.

� But I can tell you one thing: My mother suffered a great deal during this ordeal. It was only the Almighty God that rescued her from a situation that could very easily have ended tragically.

� Apart from the emotional trauma of being violently taken away from her family and kept incommunicado for five days in a strange environment, a woman of 83 years was left without food for five days.

� We give glory to God that she is alive today to tell the tale.

� While she was in their custody, the kidnappers spent much of the time harassing her. They told her that I must get on the radio and television and announce my resignation.

� When she asked why, they told her it was because I did not pay �Oil subsidy money�.

� They also said I had blocked payment of money to certain components of the SURE-P programme.

� These statements are, of course, not true. In the case of subsidy payments, we have been paying all marketers whose claims have been verified by the Aig-Imoukhuede Committee after going through the necessary processes.

� For marketers whose transactions are proven to be fraudulent, the position of the Jonathan government is also clear: we cannot and we will not pay. We will not back down on this. We will continue to stand firm.

� In the case of SURE-P, there is a totally different process that I have no control over.

� This is the right thing to do. And this, I believe is what the Nigerian people want.
