Lai Mohammed Releases List of PDP Looters


Speaking further, Dr. Obire said the same way those who succeeded Tinubu as governors of Lagos State have been performing excellently well to the acknowledgement of all Nigerians, because of the solid structure laid down by Tinubu, he (Obire) being a good pupil of the Tinubu institution, intends to replicate the good works happening in Lagos State, in Delta beginning from 2019.

Nigeria's main opposition party, the People's Democratic Party has challenged President Muhammadu Buhari to explain how the sum of N1.1 trillion crude oil revenues was stolen under his watch as a former minister of petroleum.

While reeling out the names of the alleged looters, the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed argued that until all the looted funds under the PDP were returned, their apology to Nigerians is not acceptable.

"Apology borne by desperation to recapture power without a desire to admit how much they stole and the reluctance to return the loot is morally hollow".

He said: "We challenge Buhari to make open the sources of fund available to his campaign in the 2003, 2007 and 2011 race as well as the names of the donors".

United Kingdom to tax plastic bottles to tackle pollution
It's been estimated that Brits use 13 million plastic bottles a year, and only 3 billion of these make it to recycling plants. By 2050, it is predicted that the total amount of plastic in the oceans will weigh more than the total amount of fish.

This list is just a tip of the iceberg, and the PDP is aware of this.

"They accused the President of unevenness, of inflaming ethnic and religious tensions, when it is on record that they gave this country its divisive president who chose the hallowed premises of places of worship to read important national statements".

In a statement signed by Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, yesterday, the Presidency said the PDP is desperate to recapture power because it no longer has unhindered access to national resources for private uses and its apology should be seen in this context.

"It's like a robber admitting to stealing your auto and apologising, but then saying he will keep the vehicle anyway". The PDP is a hypocrite.

"We will not stop talking about the massive looting by the PDP. We are now looking around for loans to build infrastructure, and they ask us not to talk about it. we will talk about it".
