President Muhammadu Buhari addresses Nigerians on COVID-19

The opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has accused the President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration of looting Nigeria.

The PDP asked Buhari to speak up on the latest alleged financial scandal involving officials and individuals in his government.

The opposition party in a statement titled, “PDP Calls Out Buhari Presidency On Corruption…Tasks PMB To Speak out on alleged N2.5bn Transfer to Family Member,” which was signed by the PDP National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, said that close aides to President Buhari defrauded Nigeria of funds up to N51billion.

“The PDP tasks the Buhari Presidency not to keep quiet but offer explanation to allegations in the media space that certain officials and individuals close to the Presidency defrauded our nation of the sum of N51 billion out of which N2.5 billion was wired to a member of Mr. President’s immediate family.

“The Buhari Presidency should not pretend not to be aware that the media is awash with reports that a known confidant of Mr. President and certain officials of the Nigerian Customs defrauded our nation to the tune of N51 billion under a hazy “Revenue Assurance Fund”, out of which N2.5 billion was reported to have been transferred to a foundation allegedly owned by a female member of the President’s immediate family,” the PDP statement read.
