“This explains why the administration is heavy on propaganda and has failed to prosecute its officials and APC leaders openly indicted for corruption, but only resort to ‘easing out’ such thieves with a pat on the wrist."

Premium Times also reports that the PDP said Nigerians now have a clearer picture of how the N9.3 trillion as detailed in the reported NNPC memo was stolen, and how over N2 trillion was allegedly siphoned under a fraudulent subsidy regime.
