The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to show seriousness in his declaration to jail treasury looters by immediately investigating and prosecuting the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole and other indicted persons in the presidency.

The party also said the president should allow an investigation into the alleged stealing of billions of naira by former Director General of the Department of State Services (DSS), Lawal Daura; former Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Babachir Lawal and the Executive Secretary of the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS), Prof. Yusuf Usman. PDP in a statement yesterday by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, alleged that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) investigation into billions of naira belonging to Edo State allegedly stolen when Oshiomhole was governor, was stalled despite his indictment.

“The president should also allow the investigation of his ministers, who as former governors, were indicted of stealing billions of naira belonging to their states, particularly a former governor, who was indicted by his state for allegedly diverting over N40 billion to finance APC’s 2015 presidential campaign.

“Mr. President must also investigate how billions of naira allegedly moved from parastatals under his petroleum ministry to finance the failed attempt to change the leadership of the National Assembly as well as the certificate scandals among his ministers and special advisers, and jail all those involved.

“These are the people Nigerians have been expecting President Buhari to investigate, prosecute and, if found wanting, sent to jail,”
PDP demanded. It regretted that President Buhari has been pursuing perceived political enemies and innocent opposition members while dining and wining with corrupt persons. The opposition party stated that this development has completely called to question the integrity of his anti-corruption fight. According to PDP,

“Since President Buhari came into office, he has not allowed any investigation into the corrupt activities under his presidency, instead he has been attracting to himself, all manner of corrupt persons and giving them the perfume of sainthood, once they identify with APC.”
