Lai Muhammed must name 15 governors and 55 Nigerians who stole 1.34 trillion- Fayose

Ekiti State Governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose has challenged the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed to make public names of the 15 former governor and 55 Nigerians that he claimed stole N1.34 trillion between 2006 and 2013 or keep his mouth shut permanently. He said; “The reality is that the APC Federal Government has destroyed the economy within eight months in power and rather than look for solutions to the problems facing Nigeria, Lai Mohammed and his cohorts are branding bogus figures about stolen money just to cover up their lack of solution to the country’s economic problems.”

The governor, who also described as disgraceful, bringing the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh to court in handcuff, said; “Even the masterminds of Mandala and Nyanya bomb blasts, Kabiru Sokoto and Aminu Sadiq Ogwuche were not handcuffed when they were arraigned in court.”

In a release issued by his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, Governor Fayose said it was funny that close to one year after it won the presidential election, the President Mohammadu Buhari-led All Progressives Congress (APC) federal government was still operating as if it was campaigning for votes.

The governor said; “They are turning governance to Nollywood, such that when one movie is about to end, they release another one. As it appears that the $2.1 billion arms deal movie is getting to an end, Lai Mohammed introduced another movie titled; N1.34 trillion loot. “Unfortunately for them this time around, Nigerians have become tired of watching the Federal Government movies, they now want reality. Nigerians are now aware of the scam in the $2.1 billion arms deal movie having seen that the amount those already charged to court were charged with is not more than N10 billion and $2.1 billion is over N600 billion.

“Therefore, Lai Mohammed must either tell Nigerians details of the 15 former governors and 55 people that he claimed stole N1.34 trillion, where the stolen money is kept and bring back the money or apologise to Nigerians for lying.”

    TALKING ABOUT CORRUPTION and the other associated malpractices/ improprieties in Nigeria, folks! You do some and you leave some is this fair – this is not revolution, I said it earlier that it lacks the trapping of one!

    Going back to this article I recall reading about names of owners of Oil and Gas Blocks in the Niger Delta and the South-south majority from the Northern Nigeria – the names includes Theo. Danjuma and Alhaji Atiku no prominent name of the Niger Delta people is registered on the list! Again (more over) the names of the total Block owners and Subsidy claimers (beneficiaries) – those they pay subsidies, were to be published under Jonathan’s administration so that we know how many of them pay the right taxes,; it could well be that the causes of the pipe bursting may be part grievances of the perpetrators, folks! The Oil Block owners do not belong to the Niger Delta people, I don’t know if Chief Clark as one and if he has one he should tell us how much tax he pay in the year, folks! I mean if all these people including those whose houses are on top of the (proverbial) Hill pay commensurate taxes in Nigeria, you’ll not be looking for funds to balance your budgets every year and funds for your Capital components of the budget will be assured! Part of the solutions to pipe bursting may well be to publish the names of the Block owners and if you do not have names from the zone as beneficiaries you wonder then what are we talking about correctness in Nigeria’s economic standing? Therefore, you must as early as possible make/ extend the allocation to them please – that will show that you people are rational in your thinking! Can somebody tell us what the case about the petroleum subsidy claimant who handed over 6ooM Naira to a National Assembly member is – we don’t seem to know what happened to his case! Also the issue of the DUE Process for the Energy-power enquiry what happened to it – all these may well be contributory to what is happening in the Niger Delta – do to others what you’ll want done to you that way will acting holistic in both practice and outlook!
