The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has said the Presidency and All Progressives Congress, APC, have failed in their ploy to use their so-called looters’ lists to divert public discourse from the raging questions on their incompetence, numerous scandals and overall failure in governance.
PDP’s statement came as former Minister of Aviation, Senator Stella Oduah (PDP, Anambra North), challenged the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, to provide evidence linking her with his allegations that she looted N9.8 billion. The party, through its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbon-diyan, said in a statement yesterday

that Nigerians have now seen that Federal Government has no case against it, noting that the lists only had individuals who were not indicted or convicted for corruption, some of who were not even members of the party. The statement read: “It is now a notorious fact that the whole essence of the flimsy and contemptible lists was to cause public misperception, change the topic and divert international and national discourse from various serious issues, including the parlous state of the nation’s economy caused by President Muhammadu Buhari’s misrule, for which Nigerians are now resorting to vices, including slavery and suicide as options.” Meanwhile, in a  statement yesterday in Abuja, Senator Oduah, who noted that Lai Mohammed came up with such a list with her inclusion to win a quarrel, said the allegation involving the said sum was not only untrue but also laughable. The statement read: “My attention has been drawn to the list of looters released by Lai Mohammed in which, by treachery or by happenstance, my name featured. “It is worrisome how a serving Minister could condescend so low in what appeared like a childish altercation to start mentioning names of his alleged looters without verified or verifiable facts, to win what he considered a quarrel. “I would have simply ignored him since his notoriety in making false and laughable statements has gained prominence in recent times.”

former National Security Adviser, NSA, Col Sambo Dasuki (retd), currently in detention, was a financier and facilitator of the 1983 military coup that terminated Nigeria’s Second Republic and installed Muhammadu Buhari as Head of State.

Buhari-Dasuki
Mustapha Jokolo, who was the Aide de Camp, ADC, to Mr. Buhari after the coup that toppled the government of President Shehu Shagari, made this claim in an interview, while reacting to a new book authored by Muhammadu Bashar, a retired general who replaced him as Emir of Gwandu, after he was deposed.
 
He said Dasuki, then a major in the Army, played active roles through sourcing the funds for the coup that made Buhari Head of State at the end of 1983.

Jokolo, who took exception to some details in Bashar’s book, said about the funding of the 1983 coup thus: “Honestly speaking, that is why sometimes my heart bleeds because of what is happening to Sambo Dasuki now; I worry a lot.”

‘How I made the connection’

Continuing, he said: “It is an irony. If I had not brought him (Dasuki) in this thing (1983 coup plot), it could not have happened, with Buhari as Head of State. It was Sambo Dasuki who facilitated it not me. I only suggested it.

“He was the one who convinced these people. I swear to God, Almighty. He was the one. He did a lot, honestly speaking.

“So I connected them with Sambo Dasuki and wallahi, even when we were planning the coup that saw Buhari as Head of State, Sambo Dasuki was the one who was getting money for us from Aliyu Gusau and Chief of Army Staff votes to help the coup plot, because not a single kobo did we get from Buhari.

“Not only that, he used his father’s money to sponsor some Mallams to go to Saudi Arabia to help pray for the success of the coup.”

Dasuki’s narrative

In a recently published book, entitled An Encounter with the Spymaster by Yushau Shuaib, Dasuki disclosed how he and two young army officers went to meet Buhari on the 1983 coup d’etat.
