On Wednesday, the People’s Democratic Party accused the federal government under President Buhari and the APC of trying to conceal and divert attention from the corrupt allegations.
Mr Kola Ologbondiyan, National Publicity Secretary of the Party urged Nigerians to observe the intimidation and threats arising from the Government.
“Our party is, however, not surprised that this corrupt administration resorted to distortion of facts and daring of citizens when its officials from the top to the bottom are all soiled in the foul pottage of corruption.
“It is ridiculous that this administration seeks to claim credit for the investigation and the unearthing of fraud in the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) when it is already public knowledge that the investigation only came as a result of pressure mounted by our party and other Nigerians.”
“such humongous corruption in the EFCC under the APC confirms the level of financial malfeasance and a shameful breach of trust by this administration, in which very top officials of the Buhari’s presidency had been mentioned.
“We challenge the APC-led federal government to give an account of the N800 billion, which Lai Mohammed claimed to have been recovered, especially given allegations that recovered monies have been re-looted and shared among topmost officials of the Buhari’s administration and APC leaders,”
“Our party holds that this is an evasion of gory tales of direct stealing, treasury looting and barefaced embezzlement by government officials and APC leaders as already exposed in ongoing investigations at the National Assembly and at the presidential panel.
