Afenifere’s National Publicity Secretary, Yinka Odumakin has accused Buhari Government of spreading lies, propaganda and playing politics with the list release of looters which contained names of PDP members.
Odumakin, however, said it would be good for Nigeria to get to a point where corrupt people were named and shamed.
He wondered why none of the politicians in the current government or those who defected from other parties to the All Progressives Congress, APC, and have been accused of corruption were not on the list.
Odumakin told Punch, “We should get to a point where we should have a culture of naming and shaming of those who pilfer funds but what Mohammed and the government are doing is very funny.
“They have been talking about fighting corruption and recovering money, so after three years, it is only six names they could bring out.
“And even then by our law, an accused person is presumed innocent until found guilty. For now, you can call them alleged looters, not looters because the court has yet to convict them.
“All they are doing is just playing cheap politics with their so-called anti-corruption war; the truth is that there is no war going on anywhere. It is just propaganda.
“And a minister of the government should not be engaged in this type of shenanigan. The APC can be playing this kind of politics but it is too low for the government to be playing this kind of politics.”
