The All Progressives Congress (APC) says the opposition, Peoples Democratic Party’s is sad that $311 million Abacha loot wasn’t returned when they were in power.
According to APC, PDP is unable to stamp out corruption from its DNA, adding that until the party has the courage to burn its corruption handbook to ashes, it would be difficult for it not to hallucinate over public funds.
Lanre Issa-Onilu, APC National Publicity Secretary, said this in a statement on Wednesday,
He noted that PDP personifies corruption in deeds and preferred sharing public funds amongst the ruling class.
“For the avoidance of doubt, the Federal Government on Monday confirmed the receipt of some $311million, stolen from Nigeria during the military regime of Gen. Sani Abacha and repatriated from the United States and the Bailiwick of Jersey.
“This administration similarly recovered $322 million from Switzerland in 2018, as part of monies stolen by Abacha which has been transparently and judiciously deployed in the funding of social investment programmes, including the free school feeding scheme, stipends for millions of disadvantaged citizens, and grain grants for those in severe food hardship as specified in the agreement signed with the Switzerland and the World Bank.”
