BY NKECHI NAECHE——The Federal Government on Friday released a list of some of those who have allegedly looted the nation’s treasury.
The Minister of Information, Lai Mohammad, disclosed this to newsmen during a press conference in Lagos on Friday.
The names in the list revealed by the Federal Government include PDP chieftains who are currently being tried for corruption and financial crimes.
“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.
