The Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP) Presidential Campaign Organization (PPCO) has chided President Muhammadu Buhari and its party the All Progressives Congress (APC) for allegedly inaugurating persons with corruption cases in his Presidential Campaign Council.
PPCO director Media and Publicity, who is also the PDP Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, made the allegation in a statement yesterday also challenged President Buhari to “display his highly-touted integrity by handing over the list of his campaign council members to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) for investigation.
Ologbondiyan boasted that, “Unlike the PDP Presidential Campaign Council, which has no person with corruption case as member, the Buhari Presidential Campaign Council is a looters list and a catalog of ‘who is who’ in corruption.
He explained that “the fact that President Buhari selected inaugurated and sits as the Chairman of the council, with persons with corruption cases, shows that he approves and perhaps have hugely benefited from the corrupt practices for which they were indicted.
He claimed that, “there are already allegations that such individuals are being spared because part of their loots have been diverted to fund President Buhari’s re-election bid.
Continuing, the statement reads “this development justifies the opinion held by most Nigerians that President Buhari is not fighting corruption and that his much-hyped anti-corruption crusade is just an oppressive scheme against the opposition.
“Moreover, not only that President Buhari himself now have huge corruption allegations hanging directly on his neck, particularly the over N11 trillion stolen from the Petroleum sector as well as the 9mobile and Keystone bank saga, the APC National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole, is also facing corruption allegations.
“The PPCO urges the EFCC to get a copy of the list and commence investigation, particularly as some of the individuals who currently enjoy one immunity or the other under President Buhari’s cover will lose such immunity, come May 29, 2019.No tags for this post.
