Looters: Buhari Is Preparing More Comprehensive List
It is not over yet. More looters’ lists are coming. In fact, the government is preparing a more comprehensive list that will include former ministers, senators and governors who have allegedly dipped their hands in the cookie jar.
It is gathered that the fresh list might contain names of those who are still being investigated by the eagle and have yet to be arraigned in courts for corruption.
The list is said to even include bankers.
Recall that the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, had in the past said 55 persons stole 1.34 trillion under the administration of former President Goodluck Jonathan.
Last week, he released 29 names, who he said took money from the office of the former National Security Adviser, Col. Sabo Dasuki (retd.).
Many of the names he released were, however, those already undergoing trial for alleged corruption while the names of members of the former ruling Peoples Democratic Party who had defected to the ruling All Progressives Congress were clearly omitted from the list.
The two lists contained names of those in the main opposition party, the PDP. The PDP had subsequently criticised the government, accusing it of being biased and diverting attention from its alleged incompetence.
But a source close to the Presidency, who spoke to Punch on condition of anonymity said on Friday, that the government, through the Ministry of Information and Culture, would soon release another list.
