The Peoples Democratic Party alleged on Monday, that the confession by the Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, had vindicated its position that “the All Progressives Congress is a haven of thieves and treasury looters.”
The PDP made the allegation in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, titled, ‘Amaechi’s APC looting confession vindicates PDP.’
Amaechi was quoted in an interview with a national newspaper over the weekend to have said that stealing was going on quietly under the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.) -led APC regime.
The PDP argued that the confession had also confirmed that the Buhari regime had allegedly, “been providing official cover for corrupt officials, who have turned government agencies to cash cows and Automated Teller Machines for themselves, their cronies, family members and mistresses.”
The party further noted that the situation as presented by Amaechi showed that “quiet stealing is a policy of the APC administration.”
Part of the statement read in part, “The confession by Amaechi exposes why the APC administration has failed to recover the over N25tn reportedly stolen by APC leaders in various government agencies.”
Attempts to get a response from the APC were futile, calls on the mobile telephone number of the National Secretary, Sen. John Akpanudoedehe, were neither picked nor returned, a response to a text message sent to him was still awaited as at the time of filing this report.
