- Ahead of the 2019 elections, the opposition has been accused by the minister of Niger Delta affairs of using propaganda to regain power in order to steal
- The minister noted that some people have not defined corruption because they want to loot and enrich themselves to become perpetual lords
The minister of Niger Delta affairs, Pastor Usani Usani, has said that the opposition in the country was using propaganda to gain acceptability with the electorate so that they can regain power in order to steal the little resources left for the people in 2019, Vanguard reports.
He said: “The people say we should not talk about corruption, let us do our own, but when they say we should not talk about corruption, they want us to cover their sins but we will continue to talk about it because that is the reason we are where we are today.
“The people told you that corruption is not corruption but common stealing, that is if you steal you are not corrupt yet they have not defined corruption because they want to loot and enrich themselves to become perpetual lords.”
Legit.ng previously reported that the federal government on Friday, March 30, through Lai Mohammed, released a list of some of those who have been accused of looting the nation’s treasury under the administration of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
