The former governor of Edo State, Adams Oshiomhole, has called on President Muhammadu Buhari-led federal government, to adopt a “ruthless” measure against alleged looters of the nation’s treasury.
Mr Oshiomhole, who disclosed this on Sunday in Benin, described as mindless the stealing by the then Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) led Federal Government.
The former governor noted that it was the right of Nigerians to know the level of rot that transpired in former President Goodluck Jonathan’s government.
“Just by virtue of being in a winning party they helped themselves so much.
“One of the acting chairmen of PDP, Ahmed Makarfi, I used to respect him so much, I heard him saying that the reason they did not indict Diezani was that the money missing and everything that was done, Goodluck approved.
“If president approved the money, should it be stolen and not go into the federation account or used for the intended purpose.
“Jonathan may have immunity against prosecution but he doesn’t have power to appropriate what the national assembly have not done.
