In the past couple of weeks prominent members of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), including governors elected on the party’s platform, have continued to inundate the Nigerian public with sordid tales of humongous looting of the treasury and other corrupt practices perpetrated under the Goodluck Jonathan administration. Some of these self-appointed spokespersons have even gone to the extent of bandying figures.
Specifically, Adams Oshiomhole, the governor of Edo State, “who seems to be the purveyor of the secret information of where the stolen funds are located and indeed on who the thieves are”, announced to Nigerians that senior officials of the United States Department of State revealed to him that one minister who served in the last administration has $6 billion in his account from stolen oil. Oshiomhole was on President Muhammadu Buhari’s entourage during the president’s visit to the United States.
As a responsible corporate citizen, this newspaper is totally against corrupt practices in all its ramifications. As such, we are in total support of whistle-blowing.
