Jonathan’s minister stole $6bn —Oshiomhole

28 July 2015, 12:05

Abuja - Edo State Governor, Adams Oshiomhole, said that senior officials of the State Department in the US revealed that one former minister in the Goodluck Jonathan-led government stole as much as $6bn, Vanguard reports.

The governor spoke with State House correspondents shortly after meeting with Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

He said that the PDP is a party that presided over the liquidation of the nation, destroyed all the institutions, converted the Armed Forces commanders to use them as if they were political thugs, converted the Nigerian Television Authority to a party megaphone, destroyed the Department of State Services, went after opposition as if we were rabbits to be pursued into our holes, compromised even student unions and destroyed everything that you can think of, and elevated religion to a state affair.
