Ayodele Fayose, governor of Ekiti state, has insinuated that the omission of the indicted ex-Minister of Petroleum from a list of alleged looters published by Information Minister Lai Mohammed meant that she had joined “APC’s comity of saint looters”. Mohammed had released six names of PDP members alleged to have undeservedly benefited from public funds, after the opposition dared it no name looters.
But Fayose would not take any of it as he fired a volley of salvos at the presidency in defence of his party.
“Surprisingly, name of PDP Chairman, Uche Secondus (N200m) is on Lai Mohammed clownish “looters” lists, that of Diezani that they claimed to have traced N47.2bn & $487.5m to was missing.Did FG lie against Diezani ab-initio or she is now Baptized into APC comity of Saint Looters?”, Fayose queried in a series of tweets.

Fayose further tweeted: “Still about their corruption list, what happened to the NHIS Boss, Yusuf (sacked for fraud & reinstated by Buhari), Maina (the pension thief), NNPC boss, Baru ($25bn contract scam), Abba Kyari (N500m MTN scam) and others. Are they Saint Looters?
“The APC FG should rather tell Nigerians its achievements in almost three years in office and stop running after members of opposition both within the APC and in the PDP.”
Moreover, PDP chairman, Secondus has threatened to sue Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed who named in the list.
Newsbreak.ng recalls that Secondus had been named by a prosecution witness, Oloyede Olawale in the $1.6billion fraud trial involving businessman Jide Omokore, an ally of Allison-Madueke. Olawale, a staffer of Skymit Motors alleged Secondus received 25 exotic cars from Omokore in 2015.
