The Nigerian government has released a list of some of those who have been accused of looting the nation’s treasury under the administration of the Peoples Democratic Party.
The Minister of Information Lai Mohammed, who released the list in Lagos, said most of those on the list are People Democratic Party Chieftains currently facing charges of corruption and financial crimes
He said the decision to release the names is the result of the challenge from the PDP to the Federal Government.
According to Mohammed, the list is not complete and is just a tip of the iceberg.
“The PDP has challenged us to name the looters under their watch. They said they did not loot the treasury. Well, I am sure they know that the treasury was looted dry under their watch. Yet they decided to grandstand. This shows the hollowness of their apology,” Mohammed said as he released the names.
