So, The opposition party said this in reaction to a comment credited to Rotimi Amaechi, minister of transportation,

However, Speaking on Monday, August 30, he said the “confession” by Amaechi vindicates the opposition party’s allegations
of corruption in the APC.
“The confession by the Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, that stealing is going on quietly under
the President Muhammadu Buhari-led All Progressives Congress (APC), vindicates its stand that the APC is
a haven of thieves and treasury looters,” the statement reads.
“The situation as presented by Amaechi shows that ‘quiet stealing’ is a policy of the APC administration. This explains
why the administration is heavy on propaganda and has failed to prosecute its officials and APC leaders openly
indicted for corruption, but only resort to “easing out” such thieves with a pat on the wrist.”
Finally, The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) says Amaechi’s comment on ‘quiet stealing under Buhari’ vindicates us
