Former Governor of Edo State, Adams Oshiomhole, has said he had been vindicated by the recent release of alleged looters list by the Federal Government, reiterating that “when I earlier disclosed how the Peoples’ Democratic Party, PDP, Federal Government looted the entire treasury, they said I was lying.”
The All Progressives Congress, APC-led FG had last week released a list of looters with the names on the list consisting of prominent names in the main opposition party, PDP.
What Oshiomhole said
Oshiomhole said, “What is being disclosed today is a tip of the iceberg, the money they looted if you share it among the 180 milllion Nigerians, everybody will be rich in this country,” adding that the Federal Government should not be bothered about the threat of court action by the affected persons but ensure that the looters were prosecuted.
He spoke after attending the wedding ceremony of the daughter of Ehiozuwa Agbonayinma, the House of Representatives member representing Egor/Ikpoba Okhai Federal Constituency of Edo State.
“While I was governor of Edo State, I was privileged to be part of some committees that looked into the books of some of activities of the former administration, I told Nigerians then that monies looted from the treasury were in dollars and pounds but sadly the PDP guys engaged the services of hatched writers to challenged my comments.
