The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP has alleged that over 24 trillion naira has been missing in the last six of President Muhammadu Buhari government.
The opposition party said it is more worrisome because President Buhari-led APC administration has failed to prosecute APC leaders and their agents indicted in the reported disappearance of these monies.
In a statement by the National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, PDP listed some of the stolen monies to include N10.1 trillion from the Treasury Single Account (TSA) reported in March this year, the N9.6 trillion NNPC scam, the reported N1.1 trillion crude oil fraud, the alleged N1.4 trillion fuel subsidy scam, the N500 billion Social Intervention fraud exposed by the First Lady, Aisha Buhari, as well as massive looting in FIRS, NEMA, EFCC, NDDC, NPA, NIMASA, NHIS and other agencies of government.
“The PDP notes that President Muhammadu Buhari’s efforts to launder the APC to remain in power after his tenure amounts to an effort in futility as Nigerians are no longer ready to put up with the wickedness of the APC, in its atrocious activities, treasury looting and “Janjaweed” ideology of violence, with which they have held the nation captive in the last six years.
“Mr. President should know that Nigerians are not ready to be beguiled again to further entrust the destiny of our nation in the hands of the APC, which has in the last six years, superintended over the looting of over N25.1 trillion from various ministries, agencies and department of government; leading to the ruining of our once robust economy.
“Our party is informed of how desperate APC leaders, who have been indicted for treasury looting and aiding of terrorism in our country, are blackmailing President Buhari to use his media interviews to canvass the perpetuation of APC in power so as to shield them from prosecution at the inevitable end of his tenure in 2023.
“The PDP is already aware of how such individuals have been trying to force Mr. President to commence an early campaign for the APC.
“While not excusing the personal failures of Mr. President as well as the incompetence that embodies the Buhari Presidency, it is incontrovertible that the APC, as a decadent political party, founded on vices of vindictiveness, divisiveness, falsehood, fake promises, electoral manipulations, support for violence, stealing, sectional marginalization and hatred, cannot produce the desired leadership for our nation after President Buhari.
“That is why the APC has never raised a strong voice against acts of terrorism, killings, electoral violence and treasury looting.
“Mr. President should therefore stop wasting his time trying to launder the APC. He should know that Nigerians have moved beyond APC’s gimmicks and that is why they are rallying on the platform of the PDP to rescue our nation from misrule.”
