The Peoples Democratic Party on Sunday urged the President Muhammadu Buhari administration to reveal the names of those allegedly involved in siphoning the 322 million dollars looted by late Gen. Sani Abacha.
Spokesman for the party Kola Ologbondiyan said that publishing the list of the persons was important due to revelations that the fund was being siphoned.
Ologbondiyan said that releasing the names of the people allegedly involved would enable Nigerians to know those superintending over the stealing of the fund under the guise of sharing it to the ‘poorest of the poor.’
“Since this issue was raised and the PDP called for a legislative scrutiny, the Federal Government and the APC have kept mum, perhaps, thinking that by their silence, it will be swept under the carpet like others in the past,” he said in a statement.
“However, let the APC and the Presidency be informed that Nigerians want to know the details of all those involved in the sharing.
“Nigerians want to know the details of the consultants; who authorized the consultancy, the scope of work of the consultancy firm as well as the terms.
“The president should therefore not stand aloof on this matter like others before it because it directly concerns the people.”
