Now that the APC and PDP have listed their names of looters,what next?


On April 1, 2018, Minister of Information and APC Chieftain Lai Mohammed released a teaser of what he called FG’s looters list. That list contained 5 names of prominent Nigerian politicians, all members of the opposition PDP. A day after that he dropped the full list, adding another 23 names. The second list, again, contained names of prominent Nigerian politicians who are members of the opposition PDP.

On April 3, 2018, Reno Omokri, served as media aide to President Jonathan and who wastes no time to criticize the APC government, dropped his own list of APC looters. The two lists when put together now has 66 names on it of men and women who allegedly ripped Nigeria off when in power. For the sake of clarity, take a look at the compiled list of looters below:

The question on our lips and that of every Nigerian right now is WHAT NEXT?

Now that the ruling and opposition parties have entered the game of name calling, are they just going to stop their? It will be cowardly to do so, to say the least. If the APC is sure that 23 names it released are looters then it should go ahead and probe them. And if the PDP is sure that it’s list contains names of looters who are serving in the present government, then it should provide evidences and toughen it’s opposition campaigns.

This is the time for probing and inviting the EFCC to do the job for which they were set up. This is the time for court cases and possible convictions of politicians who sucked the nation dry instead of serving it.

If the two biggest parties in the country have found a new hobby, then they should also be aware that those whom they are leading are taking notes. Nigerians are not fools or idiots.
