The list of oil thieves still allegedly evades Buhari even though he claimed to know who the thieves are. In his recent visit to the United States, Buhari was promised the list of oil thieves in Nigeria. But sources allege that he has not received it yet.
This is opposed to the speculation that Buhari had received the list when he visited the US. In fact, a source at the US embassy told Punch Newspaper that:
Though President Buhari engaged in discussions on various issues with the US President Barack Obama, there was no exchange of documents between them.
Even the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, said he was not aware of the list.
I have no knowledge of the list you are talking about so I can neither confirm its authenticity nor those listed therein.
United States has been accused of dragging her feet in fulfilling their promises to Nigeria. They are also accused of delaying in selling arms to Nigeria in her fight against Boko Haram.
Nigerians on their part are eagerly waiting for this list that would expose oil thieves. Many Nigerians have said that the existence and publishing of the list will give further credibility to Buhari’s anti-corruption drive.
