ABUJA-The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has challenged the Muhammadu Buhari Presidency and the All Progressives Congress (APC) to end its silence and speak up on the N21 billion, guns and thousands of Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs) allegedly found in the residence of the sacked Director General of Department of State Security (DSS), Lawal Daura.
The party said the discovery has not only exposed the hypocrisy of the Presidency, but also stripped it of all integrity and brought its deceptive saintly posturing to a disgraceful end.
The party in a press statement signed by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan yesterday wrote: “The world can now see that the PDP has not been raising a false alarm when it alerts that the Buhari Presidency has been using its much hyped fight against corruption and sustained harassment of opposition as a cover to divert public attention from the humongous stealing going on under President Buhari’s official cover.
“Nigerians have now seen that while the Buhari Presidency and the APC have been hounding and harassing opposition members with trumped-up corruption charges to create an impression of integrity and fight against corruption, their agents have been busy frittering away, and warehousing trillions of naira, ostensibly for their 2019 re-election and service their wasteful
lifestyles, while millions of compatriots wallow in abject poverty across the nation.
“Today, the sneaky ways of this Presidency have further been exposed and it must not in any way seek to disown the sacked DSS DG as Nigerians already know that he was merely one out of the numerous agents being used by the APC and Presidency cabal in their nefarious activities, including warehousing money, fake PVCs and weapons to be unleashed during the 2019 elections.
What the APC and the Buhari Presidency should note is the eternal reality that though the truth may be suppressed for a while, it always has a way of showing itself to light at the end,” the statement read in part.
