PDP alleges APC Govs stole N3.6 billion to fund convention

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has called on the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to commence investigation into reports that the 24 governors elected on the platform of the All Progressive Congress (APC) diverted N150 million each, amounting to N3.6 billion, from their state coffers, to fund the APC’s national convention.

In the same vein, the party accused President Buhari of complicit in the acts of corruption that have pervaded his administration and party and submitted that contrary to claims by cronies, he is practically lacking in integrity.

The party also asked the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) not to recognize the new APC National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole, as his emergence by affirmation is in violation of democratic requirements of direct voting by delegates.

PDP National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan made the positions of the party known while receiving party leaders from his home Kabba/Bunu area of Kogi state, who paid him a solidarity visit at the PDP National Secretariat, Abuja on Wednesday.

“It is unimaginable that while Nigerians are suffering untold economic hardship, including unpaid salaries, due to the misrule of the APC, governors elected on the platform of the APC diverted N150 million each, amounting to a humongous N3.6 billion to fund their wasteful national convention in Abuja.

“Recently, the Brooking Report shows that under President Buhari and APC governors, millions of Nigerians are daily dropping below poverty line. According to the report, Nigeria under Buhari has become poverty capital of the world. There is hunger and starvation everywhere, yet the APC stole N3.6 billion from public coffers to fund its national convention.

“Everybody knows that APC is a party of corruption, that is why their choice of a national chairman is an individual overburdened by allegations of humongous corruption and alleged stealing of public funds, yet enjoying presidential cover, even when the petitions against him at the EFCC is in the public domain.

“The PDP restates the demand that the EFCC immediately commence investigation against Oshiomhole, otherwise, it would have no ground upon which to continue to arrest, investigate and arraign other Nigerians on allegations of corruption”, he said. 

The party also said President Buhari can no longer claim to be a man of integrity, as he have been found complicit on acts of corruption in his party and government. 

“Each time President Buhari postures as a man of integrity, informed Nigerians shudder. If he is a man of integrity, why is he condoning corruption in his presidency and surrounding himself with corrupt people? Why is he blocking the investigation of Oshiomhole over corruption allegations? Why did he allow looted funds to be used for his party’s national convention? Buhari is not a man of integrity as his handlers want Nigerians to believe”, he said.
