Name The U.S Official Who Told You A Minister Stole $6 billion Under Former President Jonathan – US State Department to Oshiomole -

In an obvious response to the claims by Adams Oshiomole that a U.S official told them during their visit to the U.S that a minister under President Goodluck Jonathan stole about $6 billion, the US state department has come out with a disclaimer. In an attempt to get to the root of this allegation and possibly get the name of the offending minister, journalists contacted the US state department.

According to AfricanSuntimes.com, a call to placed to senior members of the US state department revealed that this claim by Adams Oshiomole might have been totally made up. According to African Sun Times, the response from the state department was that “the U.S. should not be drawn into such irresponsible comment as alleged by Mr. Oshiomhole. America has a transparent administration that doesn’t hide when people make a statement. If Mr. Oshiomhole claims a U.S. official told him that a Nigerian minister stole $6 billion, he should name the official instead of hiding behind an anonymous source.”

Adams Oshiomole governor of Edo State has been in the news a lot lately. In almost all the cases, he has had one allegation or another against officials who served under President Goodluck Jonathan. His attacks have mainly been targeted at the former finance minister Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala. This latest allegation has prompted a lot of reactions from Nigerians with many calling on him to name the minister involved.

The US state department have now also joined in this refrain, calling on Mr Oshiomole to come out openly to name the US official who gave him such information rather than hide in the convenience of anonymity.
