The main opposition, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has said Rotimi Amaechi, Minister of Transportation has confessed to looting in President Muhammadu Buhari-led government.
PDP said Amaechi’s recent claim has vindicated its stance that Buhari’s government is harbouring criminals and political robbers.
It will be recalled that the Minister had over the weekend admitted to quiet stealing in the current government.
According to him, those stealing are doing it quietly because there is now consequences for looting.
Reacting, the former ruling party accused the Federal Government of covering its officials.
In a series of tweets, PDP wrote: “The confession by the Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, that stealing is going on quietly under the President @MBuhari-led @OfficialAPCNg, vindicates its stand that the @OfficialAPCNg is a haven of thieves and treasury looters.
“The confession also further confirms that the @MBuhari-led @OfficialAPCNg administration has been providing official cover for corrupt officials, who have turned government agencies to cash cows and Automated Teller Machines (ATM) for themselves, their cronies, family members and mistresses.
“The situation as presented by Amaechi shows that ‘quiet stealing’ is a policy of the @OfficialAPCNg administration. This explains why the administration is heavy on propaganda and has failed to prosecute its officials and @OfficialAPCNg leaders openly indicted for corruption, but only resort to “easing out” such thieves with a pat on the wrist.”
