Below are the headlines found on The Daily Sun Online Newspaper for today, Tuesday,  3rd April, 2017.

Former governor of Niger State, Babangida Aliyu, has kicked against the inclusion  of his name in the list of alleged ‘looters’ of public funds released by the Federal Government on Sunday.

Aliyu distanced himself from the list and opened up that campaign funds for the 2015 elections was shared by a former governor and a former female minister.

He said they were in charge of the money which was shared for the elections.

The former governor insisted the list released by the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, two days ago, was skewed and incomplete, and wondered why the names of members of the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) were omitted.

In the list released by the minister, Aliyu allegedly got N1.6 billion from the office of the National Security Adviser (ONSA).

In his reaction, yesterday, through his media adviser, Israel Ebije, Aliyu said the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) had invited beneficiaries of the loot and they have agreed to return the money and that there was no way he could have taken the money because at the time it was shared, he was excluded on the grounds that he was the leader of the G-7.

The G-7 comprise governors who broke away from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in 2013.

“I have never been mentioned in any ONSA disbursement since 2015. I have no case with the federal government over the alleged disbursement or any other. I have every reason to believe the looters list, in which my name was included, was drafted to tarnish me before right thinking Nigerians.


 
“I believe somebody somewhere is leveraging on the unfortunate case I have with the Niger State government to present a bogus dragnet of alleged looters. Let me, therefore, urge the federal government to de-list me immediately from the list of alleged looters.

“I demand that my name be cleared on this matter. I may consider other options as a citizen whose right, as guaranteed by the Constitution, has been breached…”

In a similar vein, former  minister of Aviation,  Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, also said the list of looters released by the government is not complete without the inclusion of President Muhammadu Buhari, his deputy, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo,  Minister of Transport, Chibuike Amaechi as well as Lai Mohammed.

In a statement he issued, yesterday afternoon, Fani-Kayode described the “looters list” as “nonsensical and utterly shameful” and added that said he is innocent of any wrongdoing, as he did not receive any money from government coffers.

“The Federal Government claims that I ‘looted’ N800,000,000 from government coffers. This is false.

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo, has  reiterated that neither the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) nor the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has the capacity to rescue Nigeria from the present political and  socio-economic abyss.

Obasanjo said despite the acclaimed reforms being undertaken by the APC-led Federal Government and apologies being offered by PDP for failing Nigerians in 16 years, both parties lack the vision and wherewithal to take Nigeria to the next level.

The former president specifically knocked President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration for its failure to deliver on campaign promises and engaging in needless blame game.

He spoke at the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library (OOPL), Abeokuta when he received a joint delegation of Nigeria Young Professionals Forum (NYPF) and New Nigeria 2019, at the weekend.

The two groups, led by Moses Siasia and China Anyaso, visited the ex-president to consult him on the state of the nation and assure him of their preparedness to respond to his clarion call for a popular movement to rescue Nigeria.

He noted that the current administration would not have been voted into power if there were no challenges to address.

Obasanjo, who noted that the only political party with strong and popular grassroots movements can bring about the desired change, sustainability and stability in Nigeria, pointed out that the current administration is only giving excuses.

He charged the groups on the need to wrest power from those he termed “power addicts, and advocated for a virile grassroots movement where Nigerians can come together and form a formidable force which cannot be intimidated or divided.


 
He equally charged Nigerians not to be afraid of facing challenges in their quest to effect the desired change.

“When you have an ineffective and incompetent government, we are all victims.

“But, this time, for us to make it, we need all hands on deck. You see, I have publicly said and I mean it, that, as a party, neither PDP nor APC can get us there as they have been.

“Never mind about reforms and apology and all that. And yet, we have to get there.

“I asked one of the foundation members of PDP, the PDP when we started, was it a grassroots party? He said it was an elitist party. Really, we have never had the so-called grassroots party.

“Even NEPU, which we could say is the nearest, was not grassroots enough. And, I believe strongly that we must have a strong popular grassroots movement to bring about the change, sustainability and stability that we need in our democracy and development.

“I am happy to meet with you but don’t take anything for granted.
