You would quite agree with me that the current economic situation of the country is somehow worrisome, yet there are still people who have more than enough in their bank accounts --- everything still boils down to the fact that "this life no balance".
In one of the news report as reported by Sahara reporters, it was reported that the former minister of petroleum, Diezani Alison-Madueke's ewellery was seized by the Economic And Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
However, that is not the main reason I am penning down this article. The main reason I decided to drop this piece is to let us know how much the seized jewellery is worth.

It would interest you to know that the jewellery that was reportedly seized from her is worth #14.6 Billion.
This piece of vital information was made known today, Friday, 28th of May, 2021, at the House of Representatives Ad-hoc committee meeting in Abuja by the chairman of EFCC, Abdulrasheed Bawa.

Mr. Bawa also made it known that the jewellery is still very much in the custody of the agency, stressing the point that it has not been auctioned off.
Now, I know that the question that would be on your mind is, "why would a single person be in possession of such expensive jewellery"? However, i am definitely not in the best position to answer that question.
I am of the opinion that we all now understand why I made reference to that particular adage at the beginning of this article.
