Also listed at the news conference by Mohammed were former PDP Financial Secretary who allegedly collected N600 million from the same source on the October 24, 2014.

Former PDP National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh, is also mentioned for allegedly collecting N1.4 billion also from the office of the NSA and the Chairman of DAAR Communications, Dr Raymond Dokpesi, is also mentioned for allegedly taking N2.1 billion from the office of the NSA too.

Mohammed also listed as part of the response to an earlier challenge by the PDP asking the federal to name the country's looters.

He said: "We challenge Buhari to make open the sources of fund available to his campaign in the 2003, 2007 and 2011 race as well as the names of the donors".

"Former President Jonathan's Cousin Robert Azibaola - On Thursday, a Federal High Court ruled that he has a case to answer for collecting $40 million from the office of then NSA", the statement said.

"If the persons listed view it as name-dropping, they could sue for defamation; justification is the total defence to defamation".

"It's like a robber admitting to stealing your auto and apologizing, but then saying he will keep the vehicle anyway".

The opposition party is reacting to the list of alleged treasury looters, who are mostly PDP members, released by the Federal Government.

The Committee for the Defence of Human Rights (CDHR) has described the President Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government as unserious in the fight against corruption.

"This is in addition to cover provided for serving ministers indicted for corrupt enrichment, among whom is a prominent former APC governor from the south-south, who was indicted by his state for stealing billions of naira to fund President Buhari's campaign in 2015".

It said the list issued by the Minister of Information, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, only goes to show that the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Presidency have no proof of corruption against the PDP.

"Since the APC has chose to draw this attack, we will no longer hold back but appropriately commence a serialization of all looters hiding in APC and the Presidency".

DAILY NIGERIAN reports that Bolaji Abudulahi, APC National Publicity Secretary made the call in a statement on Saturday in Abuja.

The Presidency on Friday cautioned Nigerians to be wary of the recent apology offered by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
