President Buhari: attacked by PDP over corruption allegations against aides

Against recent allegations of corruption against aides of President Muhammadu Buhari, the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has passed an interim verdict on his presidency, saying “it is rotten and reeks of incurable corruption, festering up to every level”.

Kola Ologbondiyan, the party’s spokesman said the shocking revelations of multi-dimensional sleazes, bribery, stealing and extortions in President Buhari’s Special Investigation Panel for Recovery of Public Property as well as in the office of the Head of Service of the Federation (HOSF) are just a tip of the iceberg of the earthshaking corruption deeply entrenched in the Buhari Presidency.

The party said Nigerians are aware of how the indicted Chairman of the Special Investigation Panel, Okoi Obono-Obla and the Head of Service, Winifred Oyo-Ita, enjoyed the protection of the cabal in the Buhari Presidency in its brazen burglary of our common patrimony.

“Nigerians can also recall how the PDP had severally raised the issue of humongous fraud going on in the Special Investigation Panel under Obono-Obla as well as the Chairman’s certificate forgery allegation, and how President Buhari condoned him and refused to take immediate action.

“The Buhari Presidency should, therefore, know that Nigerians are not carried away by this new attempt to hoodwink them through the usual holier than thou script.

“If President Buhari is indeed serious about exposing corruption, he should immediately allow a system-wide probe into the activities of his administration in the last four years, particularly the trillions of naira sleazes in the Ministry of Petroleum Resources, where he was minister.

“The PDP demands that President Buhari allows an inquest into the stolen N9 trillion as detailed in the leaked NNPC memo, the reported stealing of N1.1 trillion worth of crude by interests connected to the All Progressives Congress (APC) as well as alleged diversion of billions of naira meant for security and social welfare in our country.

“Our party now expects President Buhari to allow an investigation into the revelation by the First Lady, Aisha Buhari, that the N500bn Social Investment Programme and the N16bn Mosquito Net Project of his administration were diverted to private purses.

“This is in addition to persons close to him, who as former ministers and former governors are facing corruption charges in various panels and courts, including a former minister indicted in the National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) N2.5 billion fraud case.

“Furthermore, the PDP asks President Buhari Presidency to speak out on the allegations in public space that Obono-Obla’s investigation activities at the Petroleum Equalization Fund (PEF), which the Presidency cabal is desperate to conceal, is what is being punished.

“Moreover, the PDP holds that now that President Buhari appears resolved to take the right step to investigate Obono-Obla’s certificate forgery scandal, it has also become incumbent on him to purge his conscience by owning up on his own certificate saga,” the statement concluded.

  • The issue is not whether it is PDP or APC, the clear point is that this administration is pathologically corrupt. They are all hanging on because of the huge business they are running. In a more civilized society, these gang stars should have resigned long ago,but it's all business as usual. A class of leaders who have no clue to what governance is all about, just waiting to share money.

  • At this point in time, it doesn't matter if PDP too were corrupt or not. What matters is, were the allegations of corruption against Buhari's government REAL, compelling and convincing.

    Having read through the allegations, I am convinced that they are weighty and convincing.

    What i cannot not vouch at this time is Buhari's willingness and readiness to lay a finger on the accused.

    Hopefully by the time, he leaves office, Nigeria and the world would know why he was shielding corrupt officials.

    Some people have started saying, perhaps he gets his cuts. They might be right. There comes a time when silence connotes connivance.

    What a hypocritical ruler. What a government of cronyism, nepotism and ethnicity. What a political pestilence. What an incredibly prejudiced ruler. What an uninspiring and untrustworthy man.

    What a failed regime. What an unfit ruler. What a saw dust from a cheap wood. What a situation.

    I take a stroll. Nonsense.

  • Kola Ologbondiyan the PDP mouth piece has forgotten that Nigerians are students of history. He has forgotten how GEJ protected Diezani Alison-Madueke even when the House of Representatives was bent on probing her. She refused to appear before the house committee, telling the whole world that she will not appear..But they usually accuse the government of selective probing and can’t understand their headache now that the president is looking inward too

  • PDP misappropriated or embezzled public funds during their 16 years in power in one way or the other. A government came into power with a change mantra of zero tolerance to corruption and embezzlement but the same fate is besieging them. Nigerians wake up we must cleanse this land of corruption. Mr Buhari do the needful, all these guys must face the music.

  • It's a shame people don't think before they write or don't think of this country. what the PDP has are facts. it's left for the APC to defend them.but i believe it's time we knew that buhari has never been the president of this country. (Eg)look at Case's brought against the chief of staff, kemi, enelamo and lots of them. they show that he is not capable to rule

  • PDP is indeed a shameless criminal party. Buhari makes sure that corrupt people are rooted out in his government which is why the PDP can talk. During the PDP days, what happened, when you are accused of corruption, Jonathan will be the first person to come for your defense and punish whoever discovers the corruption.
    So for PDP to come out with this trash means, shame has no end.
