FG releases another ‘looters’ list, names Fani-Kayode, three PDP senators

FG releases another ‘looters’ list, names Fani-Kayode, three PDP senators

The threat to institute legal action against Lai Mohammed, minister of information, did not stop the federal government from releasing another list of alleged looters.

After the first list containing five names was made public, Uche Secondus, chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), gave Mohammed 48 hours to withdraw it and tender an apology.

But on Sunday, Mohammed released another list which had 23 names, including Femi Fani-Kayode, former minister of aviation, and three PDP senators.

The senators are Stella Oduah from Anambra, Jonah Jang from Plateau and Peter Nwaboishi from Delta.

Mohammed said the list released earlier was based on verifiable facts, adding that those complaining that it was too short did not understand that the list was 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,

“What was the PDP expecting when it challenged the FG 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?”

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.

“The hysterical and panicky reaction from the PDP has shown that the party is not at all sincere about its choreographed apology. Were it not the case, the party would have followed in the footsteps of one of its leaders, Senator Ibrahim Mantu, who simply owned up to his role in the party’s rigging in the past elections and said he had turned a new leaf.

“It is said that a true confession is done in humility with an attitude of repentance. It is clear that the PDP does not know this, hence its resort to hubris instead of humility and genuine penitence.”

Below are the details of the new list:
