– Tasks PMB To Speak out on alleged N2.5bn Transfer to Family Member

NEWSDAILYNIGERIA-Nigeria’s main opposition party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has slammed President Muhammad Buhari’s administration describing it as the putrid citadel of corruption.

This the PDP said owing to alleged colossal treasury looting going on his government,involving close family members.

In a statement signed by the National publicity Secretary,Kola Ologbondiyan on Sunday the party tasked Buhari to speak out on the alleged N2.5bn Transfer to a family member,saying

“The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) says the recent reports of massive treasury looting allegedly involving persons close to President Muhammadu Buhari, has further exposed his administration as a putrid citadel of corruption.

” The PDP tasks the Buhari Presidency not to keep quiet but offer explanation to allegations in the media space that certain officials and individuals close to the Presidency defrauded our nation of the sum of N51 billion out of which N2.5 billion was wired to a member of Mr. President’s immediate family.

” In the same vein, the PDP challenges the Buhari Presidency to speak out on allegations, also in the public space, that 122 posh properties, valued at over N1.6 trillion and seized by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), were shared and allocated to cronies on the directives of the Presidency.

” The Buhari Presidency should not pretend not to be aware that the media is awash with reports that a known confidant of Mr. President and certain officials of the Nigerian Customs defrauded our nation to the tune of N51 billion under a hazy “Revenue Assurance Fund”, out of which N2.5 billion was reported to have been transferred to a foundation allegedly owned by a female member of the President’s immediate family.

” This close confidant, who is alleged to be fronting for certain individuals close to the President in scandalous contracts running into billions of naira in the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) and the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) among other government agencies, was arrested at Heathrow Airport in the United Kingdom in 2019, for alleged passport scam and laundering of 200,000 pounds allegedly belonging to a particularly relation of Mr. President.

” On the EFCC scandal, the Buhari Presidency should come clean on how the anti-graft agency was hijacked to become an instrument of treasury looting and corrupt enrichment for fraudulent friends and officials of the Buhari administration.

” It is indeed appalling that such impunity and barefaced looting are going on under an administration that came into governance with an assurance of fighting corruption, only to end up swimming in an ocean of corruption.

” The PDP asks the Buhari Presidency to end its silence as the issues are already in the public domain, with Nigerians demanding for investigations.

” The PDP therefore demands that the Buhari Presidency should order an immediate and open investigation into the allegations into these duplicitous enterprises for which persons connected to the Presidency have again been mentioned.”the Statement added
