Shehu-Sani-President-Muhammadu-Buhari

Senator Shehu Sani, who is representing the Kaduna Central, has called on  the Federal Government to include corrupt members of the All Progressive Congress (APC) and Cabals who are suspected to be in the Presidency in the Looters list to be published soon as well.

 In a figurative statement, Senator Shehu Sani pointed out that the names already complied for publications should not only have names of Looters in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) alone, but it should be inclusive of looters also in the All Progressive Congress (APC).

Shehu Sani in his Facebook post dated Friday, October 20th, read : ”The Federal Government’s decision to publish the names of looters is commendable. Hope the ‘call-up’ list will not be limited to the ageing ‘Umbrella United’ players, but will include those in the ‘Broomers FC’ and ‘Paris Saint Germain’ and ‘Dynamo Cabal FC’ players.” 

Figuratively, the lawmaker used the “Broom” to refer to the APC, while PDP was referred to as the “Umbrella” party, which is an apt description that each party uses for their symbol.

 

It is worthy of note to state that, only recently, President Buhari had ordered Ministries, Departments and Agencies to compile names of treasury looters for publication.

This was disclosed on Thursday by the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abukabar Malami, SAN, during a meeting at his office in Abuja with a delegation from Social-Economic Rights and Accountability Project, SERAP.

He said, “President Muhammadu Buhari has directed all relevant agencies to compile documents on names of all looters with a view to promptly enforcing the judgment of a Federal High Court in Lagos ordering the government to release to Nigerians information about the names of high ranking public officials from whom public funds were recovered”

SERAP Executive Director, Adetokunbo Mumuni also confirmed this to the press, he stated thus:

”Mr Malami informed us that President Buhari has directed the Ministry of Justice, Ministry of Finance, Economic and Financial Crimes Commission EFCC, Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission, ICPC, another relevant agencies involved in the recovery of looted funds to promptly put the documents together with a view to fully and promptly enforcing the judgment by Justice Shagari.”
