The Presidential Campaign Organization of the PDP recently passed a vote of no confidence on the acclaimed integrity of President Muhammadu Buhari until he gives response to Atiku Abubakar’s revelation of soiling his hands in the corrupt acquisition of Etisalat (now 9mobile) and Keystone Bank Plc.
It is against this backdrop that PDP suggested that President Buhari should forget the thought of contesting in the forthcoming Presidential election without clearing the air on the allegation.
In a statement by Kola Ologbondiyan, the Director, Media & Publicity, PDP Campaign Organization, he said, “The PDP Presidential Campaign challenges President Buhari to explain how his family members came about the sum of 1.032 trillion naira for this scandalous acquisition. Nigerians are not interested in mere rhetoric or attempts by the Buhari Presidency to divert public attention from the issue at hand, but demand that President Buhari, who hitherto prides himself as Mr Integrity, squarely addresses these grave issues in person.”
“It is a norm that he who comes to equity must come with clean hands. President Buhari and his family members have entangled themselves in corruption.”
“Mr President’s hands can no longer be said to be clean, until he proves otherwise. Our party has full details of how persons related to President Buhari, by consanguinity and affinity, have been paved the way to loot trillions of naira from government agencies for corrupt acquisition of shares in major companies, purchase expensive property within and outside Nigeria , as well as to finance their very luxury lifestyles, under Mr President’s cover.”
