Action Democratic Party (ADP) has asked President Muhammadu Buhari to immediate release the Yemi Osibanjo report on the investigation of the suspended Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Engr Babachir David Lawal

The party also accused the Presidency of paying lip service to the fight against corruption despite president Buhari’s avowed decision to fight the monster head on

National Chairman of the party, Engr Yabagi Sani, who spoke at the National Executive Council (NEC) meeting of the party in Abuja yesterday said the long silence of the President on the level of corruption going on in his government was not helping his anti corruption crusade

He said the government must heed the warning of the World Bank in the proposed plan to borrow about $55 billion to finance infrastructural development across the country

“It is unfortunate that this government is paying lip service to corruption

This is in spite of its vow to fight corruption head on

The $25 billion contract award scandal in the NNPC and other unresolved cases of corruption involving the functionaries of the APC led federal government bring to question the commitment of President Muhammadu Buhari to the fight against corruption

“The President should come out clean on the NNPC contract award scandal since he is the supervising Minister of Petroleum

Th e federal government should heed the caution of the World Bank in view of the high debt profile of the country,” the party added

While condemning the delay in the release of the report on the corruption allegation against the former SGF, Sani said “President Buhari should immediately release the report of the Osinbajo led investigation panel on the N40billion cash fund in Lagos and the indictment of the former Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Engr Babachir David Lawal

” He said it was unfortunate that the country was presently on the precipice, pointing out that “as patriots, we must exhibit the determination to rescue our country and place her on the path of progress and national cohesion

History and posterity will vindicate us as we march on this journey of national rebirth
