Wailers are enemies of the Nigerian State because what most of them want is disintegration of the country and i want the good people on this forum to understand that and be careful as to what information you react to because these irritating idiots are everywhere.

  38. Otunba Pretoria

    So it is only APC Governors name the FBI released abi, make Una continue…Truth shall prevail at the end

  39. IBE


  40. i.k.h.i.s

  41. Manga

    Writen by PDPings

  42. Dada

    Where is Bukola Saraki on the list, I guess he owns triple of what all of them has if combined together

  43. Aliyu

    With the exception of Okorocha others are thieves. Okorocha was known to be a philanthropist for long before he ventured into politics.

  44. Oluwatoyin Balogun

    The FBI, the American government and the Western world are all culpable in the corruption and looting of Nigeria and African treasuries because they know that these monies were stolen by these people and they accommodate them because they use it to boost their own economies. They now turn around to say African politicians are corrupt when they are the ones encouraging them. That is why is always so difficult for them to release the money even after agreeing that these monies were stolen. Let them stop their banks or sanction any bank that takes in such money and let’s see if corruption
    will not reduce drastically in Africa. Imagine if all those monies were to be in Nigerian banks, economists please tell me would Nigeria be where she
    is now economically

    1. Pdp Pac all rogues

      The pdp dogs is at it again.. dont be fool by this.. there’s no fbi list anywhere.. this is their strategy for 2019.

  45. Oluwatoyin Balogun

    I will really be disappointed if some of the names i read in this article are really amongst the people stealing from our national treasury. I think this should be investigated and if it is true those of them who are in this government should be sacked immediately or i will never support this administration again

  46. Mahmud

    hmmmmm out of 36 states in Nigeria only 16 states and all are APC states. Where is Akpabio, Talban Minna, FOmer Kaduna State Governor among others.

  47. gabson

    Zis is fake. U be failed.

  48. WP

    To me. Want I know is that GOD we Judge all of us.


    It is the money that get into their Head and become sociologically affected that is why they put money in side shalanga

  50. obi

    Yet no Igbo’s meaning we ain’t that corrupt except ma bizman bro okorocha

  51. Victor Chigozie

    It is shocking. Yet millions of Nigerians are dying in abject poverty. The kingdom of God is at hand.

  52. Ogekings

    This is a list prepared by PDP. This total rubbish as far as I am concern. Meanwhile I don’t see any reason why you can not just correct somebody without insulting him.

  53. Surplusdon

    Shey politicians no include Tinubu,Obj and d rest? Abi dey no dey calculate stolen money?

    1. Dem dey o, infact i will write another post dedicated to them

  54. Eugene NWANOROH

    Are these the sums they made while they are in government at different levels or do they include their financial worth before they joined government? There is need to publish their worth before they came into government offices to avoid misleading the public with wrong amounts. It is also necessary to publish what they were earning at their various levels of government engagements. It’s vital to call the spade what it is to help the security agencies and also avoid crucifying the innocent along with the dirty culprits. But one thing is certain, there is no Nigerian dead or alive who has in one way or the day undeservedly enriched him/herself with public/corporate funds, that would not remain under the curse of God Almighty eternally. For there is no rest for the wicked, says the Lord. Not even their offspring’s and their co-conspirators and beneficiaries, shall escape the incubus propensities of the curse. The word of God said, ‘this curse shall follow them”.

  55. temmy

    paulmike! your grammatical error can bring back to life a phantom! chaii!!

  56. Abubakar

  58. Tam

    This is the real problem all these replies with sense, logic and some passion, how ever come election N100,000.00 changes peoples behaviour. Instant gratification forgetting tomorrow.

  59. Bob

    What kind of country is this?
    We now know who has stolen our money!
    Is Buhari going to do anything about it?
    Some of these rogues are still in office,
    masquerading as normal human beings.

    Wow, they should all be rounded up and
    exterminated. Stealing money on this scale
    must be made a capital offence, period.

    1. Dunama Umaru

      Pls help send my details to American FBI so that they can include my name, Dunama Umaru Midlu $1.5B

  60. Bob

    and finished this country called Nigeria.

  61. moryn

  74. Dunama Umaru

    FBI Pls Include My Name and my Father’s we haveā‚¬ 1.65 at midlu bank USA

  75. Lulu (future Nigeria)

    forged list or not, our politicians are all rogues and don’t have the good of young Nigerians at heart rather they want to drag Nigeria with them to the grave,they’ll pay for this evil one way or the other before their final judgement by God. I believe a time will come when honest youths will take over and Nigeria will live again.

    I urge youths to come together and seek solution to strike out all this fake political parties. We can build platforms for youths and start from there, a thousand steps started with just one.

  76. Abramos

    Lols, its so funny to see that people are still illiterates and still lack sense of ethics despite the level of how important education is in Nigeria. Probably I can say some people here commenting are educated illiterates because they have only gone to school to read but still have low IQ and low thinking ability. Before you argue, notice what you argue about or what you comment on. Many people here have failed to realise that the so called FBI list has only been listed with Microsoft excel without the culprits full name. Is it only Rochas Okorocha that bears Okorocha or is it only Babatunde Fashola that bears Fashola or its only Rauf Aregbesola that bears the name Aregbesola. So their FBI don’t have their full names thereby listing only APC governor’s name leaving PDP out of it. I laugh in Swahili, its a job well done…this piece of shit can’t fool me even if millions of illiterates will fooled by this. And to the PDPings bringing out this rubbish….. If you need a clean format to prove FBI list those names for you. Learn Photoshop to show what they have acquired with those monies with good pictures, learn web development and design a web page, have a good article, create your blog sites and post your FBI lists.
