President Muhammadu Buhari has been charged by the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) to account for funds of over N14tr allegedly looted under his administration before May 29.
This was made known by the PDP in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan. Ologbondiyan alleged that there were humongous corruption and treasury looting under Buhari’s watch.
The opposition, therefore, asked the president Buhari should open up his tenure for investigation, to prove his integrity.
PDP also charged the Chairman of the Presidential Advisory Committee on Anti-Corruption (PACAC), Professor Itse Sagay to advise Buhari “to present his stewardship for investigation of alleged corruption, instead of his (Sagay)’s an unnecessary fixation on court rulings in Rivers State.”
PDP also noted that Buhari’s administration would be remembered as the most corrupt administration ever, adding: “It is a stinking sanctuary of treasury thieves that thrives in manipulation, deception and official concealment.
“It is totally unpardonable that President Buhari, despite his claimed integrity and zero tolerance for corruption, not only superintended over an administration that reeks and wallows in corruption but also refused to allow any investigation into massive corruption under his watch.”
“The Buhari Presidency should also explain the circumstances surrounding the handling of the N2.6tr oil subsidy regime, particularly the alleged N58 hidden tax per litre, which Nigerians have continued to bear since the fuel price increased from PDP subsidised the cost of N87 to presumably unsubsidized cost of N145.
“He should also investigate alleged stealing of N1.1tr worth of crude oil using 18 unregistered companies, allegedly linked to the cabal at the Presidency,” the statement said.
“Unless the President has something to hide, he should allow an independent investigation into the allegations of corruption in the next 14 days,” it added.
