PDP chairman, Secondus reacts to looters names released by Buhari govt

Idahosa, who represented the Ovia Federal Constituency of the state in the House of Representatives from 1999 to 2011, spoke about the corruption war hours after the Minister of Information, Mr Lai Mohammed, released the list of those the government alleged looted the nation's treasury.

PDP chieftains who are now being tried for corruption and financial crimes.

"Dr Raymond Dokpesi, Chairman of DAAR Communications, on trial for taking N2.1 billion from the office of then NSA".

"The APC noted this apology, but asked the PDP to go a step further and confess to their sins before restitution could be considered".

On trial, over N830 million allegedly kept in accounts of four different companies. If the federal government and the APC are serious about fighting corruption and not just out to persecute PDP members, they should have begun with the probe into the source of the billions of naira used for President Buhari's 2015 presidential campaigns, particularly in the face of allegations that the fund was looted from treasuries of various APC states. But I think what happened was that the Federal Government succumbed to pressure in releasing the list.

The PDP National Publicity Secretary who was a guest on Channels Television's Politics Today, however, faulted the Vice President's allegations.

"They are in court and the records are available". Some of the people on this list are seeking plea bargain and that is a fact.

Mohammed clarified that the "treasury looters" were individuals who were officials in the past government.

But in replying Secondus, the presidency advised Nigerians to be cautious of what it called the less-than-honest apology offered by Secondus while asking the PDP to return all looted funds.

The Committee for the Defence of Human Rights (CDHR) has described the President Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government as unserious in the fight against corruption.

The Eagle Online reports that the list has the current PDP Chairman, Prince Uche Secondus, who allegedly according to the list took N200 million on the 19 of February 2015 from the office of the NSA while former PDP financial secretary also allegedly took N600 million from the office of the NSA too.

PDP reiterated that "its on a rebound and such flimsy allegations by the APC and its horde of looters, who stole enormous wealth from their respective states of the federation to sponsor an incompetent candidate in 2015, can not stop us from challenging the Federal Government to fulfill its campaign promises".
