In a recent interview with Legit TV, Ms Agwu complained about the level of poverty in Nigeria. She also pointed out that in other countries, she would have been better rewarded for what she did, but that isn’t the case in Nigeria.

She said:


As you see me, I’m a person people know the whole world today. But see.

Nobody in Nigeria do what I did.

I return money four times in Nigeria. I’m a cleaner, the year 2014 in Murtala Muhammed, return 12 million, return 10 million, return 8 million, return 7 million.

But if na other countries, I’ll be an ambassador to telling youths that honest is paying. But now see. They close it. Nobody to remember it.

But I’m happy. I know that one day…


She continued:


Only God can survive this Nigeria because people in Nigeria, evil people in Nigeria, they don’t want to help people, help poor. People are suffering.
