Buhari’s presidency cooking up lies against Atiku – PDP

Published

on

The Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) has called out president Muhammadu Buhari’s government for cooking up lies against its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.

In a statement by the opposition party on Wednesday, it said that lies against Atiku show the ruling party already senses defeat in the coming election.

The party noted that the president is incompetent and Nigerians are ready to vote him out but has resulted to concocting lies to pull down its candidate, which is a likely replacement for Buhari in 2019.

See full statement below:

Buhari Presidency’s Resort To Lies Against, A Sign Of Defeat. The resort to derogatory comments and personal attacks by Alhaji Lai Mohammed and other officials of the failed Muhammadu  Buhari Presidency against our Presidential Candidate is a sign of defeat and non-performance.

Since the successful conduct of our Presidential primary and the popular emergence of Atiku, the Buhari Presidency and the APC have become intimidated; gone into panic mode and ignobly resorting to trading on rumour and spurious allegations

We aware of how the unnerved and intimidated Buhari Presidency has unleashed its officials, spin doctors and hack writers with billions of naira, siphoned from our national treasury, to fabricate lies, spurious allegations and smear campaign against our Presidential candidate.

While it is understandable that President Buhari is discomfited and afraid to face a popular candidate in any elections due to his incompetence, for which Nigerians earnestly seek his replacement, engaging in smear campaign, as a means of survival, is completely reprehensible.

It is therefore a heinous perversion for Lai Mohammed, who has earned himself a notoriety, to the extent Nigerians now replace his first name, ‘Lai’ with ‘lie’, to attempt to suggest that the choice of @atiku is a return to era of corruption

 

Lai Mohammed fails to note that Nigerians are aware that, while our candidate, @atiku has never been indicted for corruption or facing any corruption charge, President @MBuhari is now overburdened by indictments and allegations of humongous corruption

Since Lai Mohammed is talking about era of corruption, we charge him to speak up on the leaked memo detailing the stealing of N9 trillion ($25billion dollars) through underhand oil contract at the @NNPCgroup and the Ministry of Petroleum, under @MBuhari’s direct supervision.

Lai Mohammed should speak up on the alleged siphoning of N1.4 t through sleazy oil subsidy regimes and those benefiting from the alleged N58 hidden tax per liter which Nigerians have continued to bear since the fuel price increase from N87 to presumably unsubsidized cost of N145.

Lai Mohammed should speak up on why the @MBuhari Presidency is suppressing investigation into alleged use of 18 unregistered companies to lift and divert N1.1 trillion worth of crude oil in 2017 and the President’s alleged link with the beneficiaries of this fraud.

Can Lai Mohammed tell Nigerians how the @MBuhari era allegedly presided over the stealing of over N18 billion from the funds approved for rehabilitation of Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) and rebuilding of six northeast states ravaged by insurgency?
