Lai Mohammed, the Minister of Information and Culture, has stated that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) will loot the country’s treasury if the party ever has access to power.
The minister made the remark in reaction to the controversy over the return of N122.4 million by members of the PDP’s national working committee (NWC).
Speaking on Thursday in an interview with NAN in Arusha, Tanzania, the minister stated that the PDP has not yet learned its lessons.
“If a man can steal from himself, he will steal without any restrain from other people,” he said.
“The problem is that PDP will never change and like they say, a leopard will never change its spots.
“When PDP lost elections in 2015, they admitted that they had learnt their lessons, but obviously, they have learnt nothing.
“God forbid, if they ever have access to public purse again, they will leave no kobo there. We know what we met when we assumed office in 2015, we are still wailing from it.
“We hope Nigerians have now seen from this scandal the intention of PDP if they ever have access to public treasury.”
