LOOTERS' LIST: Buhari govt not serious - CDHR

He further stated that this is just a tip of the iceberg and some of the cases are still in court, stressing that the list is not a mere imagination of the APC.

Some of them are the current PDP National Chairman, Uche Secondus, Former Financial Secretary of the party, former National Publicity Secretary of the party, Olisa Metuh, a chieftain of the party Dr Raymond Dokpesi, AIT founder, among others.

Mohammed said: "They are in court and the records are available".

Tinubu, while speaking during the 10th Bola Tinubu Colloquium organised to mark his 66th birthday celebration on Thursday, said "we will not allow the PDP back".

"If he cannot mention their names, and he cannot cause their arrest and he cannot even list these people, he should keep quiet", he said.

"It's like a robber admitting to stealing your auto and apologizing, but then saying he will keep the vehicle anyway".

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.

The party, therefore, challenged the government to come up names of its members against whom the federal government had secured convictions.

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.

It said the list issued by the Minister of Information, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, only goes to show that the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Presidency have no proof of corruption against the PDP.

A former member of the Federal House of Representatives, Mr West Idahosa, has faulted the Federal Government's list of alleged looters.

PDP reiterated that "its on a rebound and such flimsy allegations by the APC and its horde of looters, who stole very large 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".

DAILY NIGERIAN reports that Bolaji Abudulahi, APC National Publicity Secretary made the call in a statement on Saturday in Abuja.

"We challenge individual PDP leaders to publicly and voluntarily tell Nigerians how much they stole and then agree to cough up their illegal acquisitions of wealth if they want their apology to be taken seriously".
