The Federal Government has asked the Peoples Democratic Party to completes its apology to Nigerians by returning all the alleged funds looted from the public treasury during its 16 years in power.
The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, urged the party to go a step further by returning all the looted funds.
Mohammed’s reaction followed the apology made by the National Chairman of the PDP, Prince Uche Secondus at the party’s function in Abuja on Monday, where he asked Nigerians to forgive the party.
He said: ”The PDP presided over an unprecedented looting of the public treasury, perhaps the worst of its kind in Nigeria or anywhere else in the world. Therefore, the best evidence of penitence for such a party is not just to own up and apologize, but to also return the looted funds. Anything short of that is mere deceit.
”Even with the paucity of funds, this administration has spent an unprecedented amount of money on infrastructural development and Social Investment Programme, among others. Returning looted funds will provide more money for these programmes and make life more meaningful for Nigerians. There is no better apology than that.”
