Senate C’ttee Chairman On NDDC, Nwaoboshi In 2nd Batch Of Looters


The Federal Government has released more names of people who have allegedly looted the nation’s treasury with the chairman, Senate Committee on Niger Delta Development Commission, NDDC, Affairs, and Senator representing Delta North senatorial district in the National Assembly, Peter Nwaoboshi and other top government officials in the President Goodluck Jonathan’s administration.

The Federal Government said the list of alleged looters which was released earlier was based on verifiable facts, including the amount involved, the date the amount in question was collected and from where it was taken.

Releasing the second list of alleged looters on Sunday, the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed said those complaining that the list was too short did not understand that it was strategically released as a teaser.

He referred to his earlier statement that the list was just ‘a tip of the iceberg’ and slammed the PDP for challenging the Federal Government to name the looters.

”At the press conference where the list was released, I did say it was a tip of the iceberg. Apparently, this does not mean anything to people whose style is to comment on issues they barely understand, or just to shoot down anything coming from the government.

“The Federal Government has a large number of alleged looters on its list. What was the PDP expecting when it challenged the FG to name the looters of the public treasury under the party’s watch? Did the PDP actually believe that the massive looting under its watch was a joke?, he queried.

Alhaji Mohammed said the Federal Government will neither be intimidated nor blackmailed into silence, adding that it will also not rest until all those who looted the public treasury have been brought to justice.
