The conference of Nigeria Political parties (CNPP) has accused the federal executive of plotting to protect the real owner of the sums of $ 43, 449, 947, £27, 800 and N23, 218, 000 (about N13.three billion) just lately recovered from an Ikoyi condo in logos State, calling on the industrial and financial Crimes fee (EFCC) to prove to Nigerians that its activity was once no longer lopsided by naming and prosecuting its proper proprietor.
The umbrella company of all political events and affiliation within the united states of america warned that it’s going to mobilise its contributors, smartly-that means Nigerians, and civil society groups to withstand any cover up of the actual owner of the stashed money, disregarding the claims that the cash belongs to national Intelligence company (NIA).
CNPP in a statement signed with the aid of its Secretary general, Chief Willy Ezugwu maintained that if it used to be discovered that the cash and the apartment truly belonged to the former governor of Rivers State and Minister of Transport, Hon. Rotimi Amaechi, the cash will have to be back to the River State’s treasury.
“We’re worried that the current anti-graft war is changing into a exhibit as each day passes. it’s extra worrisome whilst you commence to listen to that a executive safety agency, the NIA, which isn’t a earnings producing organ of the federal executive, is laying declare to the recovered.
“The NIA’s attitude to the controversy is nothing but a deliberate plot through the federal government to cover up the true identity of the looter.
“How can the NIA declare to personal N13 billion money stashed in an individual residential condominium; NIA has no place of business in Lagos?”
“The war in opposition to corruption is now being exposed for what it actually is on daily basis, a lopsided battle against perceived enemies of the present administration, while all individuals of the ruling party are protected from prosecution.
“The case of the Secretary to executive of the Federation (SGF) continues to be contemporary in our minds, how President Muhammadu Buhari quickly absorbed him of any fallacious doing even sooner than any investigation was carried.
“The Minister of Transport has been on the centre of a couple of financial scandals that have been by no means investigated. however any plot to duvet up the owner of the Ikoyi condo loot will be strongly resisted, with the CNPP prime the fight. sufficient is sufficient”, the CNPP mentioned.
