In the release, Fayose states that the All Progressive Congress has misused monies and destroyed the economy within eight months of power, Vanguard reported.

He branded Lai Mohammed and his people of trying to cover up their tracks by releasing bogus figures on money stolen from the country.

Fayose added that it is disgrace that the APC government handcuffed PDP National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh.

The APC has been compared to a Nollywood movie with the problems government is facing, as just one movie is ending another one starts, relating to the $2.1 billion arms deal now the N1.34 trillion loot.

Fayose concluded by expressing that Mohammed needs to tell the truth as to what really happened to the money followed by naming and shaming those involved.
