The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Osun State has alleged that the looting of government finances done by the immediate past People’s Democratic Party (PDP)-led government is “unequalled in the history of corrupt governments in Africa”.
“Yet, some of the beneficiaries of this looting spree across Nigeria, especially in Osun State, still have the effrontery to mock the victims of their crimes by shifting blames of this catastrophe on a government that had done the best for the people in Osun since this state was created,” the APC said in a statement by the Director Publicity, Mr Kunle Oyatomi.
This was in reaction to news report that over N3 trillion of NNPC fund was not paid into the federation account by the immediate past minister of petroleum, Mrs Dieziani Allison-Madueke.
“The leadership of the PDP in Osun were recipients of the looted funds which would have been available to pay salaries if the PDP government of Goodluck Jonathan did not steal such humongous sums and wasted the nation’s resources in the most expensive party campaign for retaining political power that has ever been seen in the continent of Africa.
“From the NNPC alone, trillions of Naira is said to be missing. The ex-minister of Finance was also alleged to have spent billions of dollars without authorization not to talk of other agencies of the Federal Government which joined in the looting spree.”
