Opposition People’s Democratic Party PDP has accused the All Progressives Congress APC of using looted funds to prosecute the 2015 election victory of President Muhammadu Buhari.
PDP spokesperson Kola Ologbondiyan in a press statement yesterday also said known culpable persons now sit comfortably around the Presidential table, still superintending over the looting of Nigeria’s common patrimony.
“It is, to say the least, despicable that the APC and its federal government, in their arrogance, would always try to play the saint when they were elected with stolen fund and have continued to reek with filth and sleaze.
“Nigerians are aware that prior to the 2015 election, President Buhari had informed (the people) that he was insolvent.
“He however took Nigerians by surprise as he enjoyed one of the most expensive presidential campaigns in the history of our nation, while turning a blind eye to reports of massive looting of funds from APC controlled states.
“This is the APC, whose government, has been rated by international bodies including the Transparency International (TI) which latest report, shows that corruption and sleaze had escalated under its watch.
“This is the same government where ministers and officials indicted for corruption and looting of public funds, particularly in the oil and gas sector, which is directly under the purview of Mr. President, are shielded and condoned,” he said.
The party also urged the ruling party to investigate allegations of corruption leveled against some of its cabinet members.
