Presidency Releases Another Alleged Looters List

By on April 2, 2018

The Federal Government has vowed to released another list of 23 more looters from the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP).

The list indicated that the total amount allegedly looted by 23 people named in the list is $19.82 billion in foreign currency, and N320.066 billion.

Alhaji Lai Mohammed, minister of information and culture in a statement released yesterday averred that the list of alleged looters which it released earlier was based on verifiable facts, including the amount involved, the date the amount in question was collected and from where it was taken.

Releasing a fresh list of 23 alleged looters, Alhaji Mohammed, also said those complaining that the list was too short apparently did not understand that it was strategically released as a teaser. ‘’

At the press conference where the list was released, I did say it was a tip of the iceberg.

Apparently, this does not mean anything to people whose style is to comment on issues they barely understand, or just to shoot down anything coming from the government,’’ he said,

Alhaji Mohammed slammed the PDP for daring to challenge the Presidency over an issue that the party knows is its weakness: looting of public treasury.

‘’What was the PDP expecting when it challenged the us to name the looters of the public treasury under the party’s watch?

Did the PDP actually believe that the massive looting under its watch was a joke?

Did they think it is April Fool?’’ he said.

The Minister said the PDP’s reaction to the looters’ list has shown that its recent apology is an election-induced act, contrived to deceive unsuspecting Nigerians to vote for the party in the 2019 general election.

SECOND BATCH OF ALLEGED LOOTERS AND THE AMOUNT ALLEGEDLY EMBEZZLED

1. Former NSA Sambo Dasuki: Based on EFCC investigations and findings
alone (this is beside the ongoing $2.1 billion military equipment
scandal), a total of N126 billion, over $1.5 billion and 5.5 million
British Pounds was embezzled through his office. A good number of
these monies were simply shared to persons and companies without any
formal contract awards.

About $3 billion was involved. The Federal Government is charging Omokore and Aluko and will use all legal instruments local and international to ensure justice.
