The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has alleged, that rather than fighting corruption, President Muhammadu Buhari is practically running a “felonious empire of corrupt individuals, certificate forgers, contract inflators, looters of treasuries and well-known liars”.
The party said that all these have made the administration from “head to toe the biggest assemblage of plunderers” in the history of Nigeria.
The opposition party which said that it has thoroughly reviewed President Buhari-led All Progressives Congress (APC) administration and submits that it has “irredeemably failed in every sector of our national life”, added that available data, both locally and internationally, confirm that the Buhari administration has failed woefully in all its promises and claims, particularly on fight against corruption, economy, security, democracy as well as national unity and cohesion.
In a statement on Sunday by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, the party said it has observed that the Buhari administration’s claimed fight against corruption has been exposed to be a big lie; a charade designed to hound perceived political opponents while providing cover for humongous corruption and pillaging of resources by agents of the Buhari Presidency.
“Instead of fighting corruption, this administration is practically a felonious empire of corrupt individuals, certificate forgers, contract inflators, looters of treasuries and well-known liars, making it, ‘head to toe’, the biggest assemblage of plunderers in the history of our nation.
“We ask, if, Mr. President is indeed a man of integrity, as his handlers want the world to believe, why is he comfortable employing, embracing, surrounding himself with and offering protection to corrupt persons, certificate forgers and liars as ministers, advisers and political associates?
“Are there things Mr. President benefits or has in common with such individuals that attract them to him or for which they enjoy his cover to steal public funds in parastatals, agencies and ministries, particularly those under the direct supervision of the President?
“Largely, due to the incompetence and corruption of the Buhari Presidency, our once robust economy has been wrecked, resulting in unbearable hardship, unemployment, hunger and starvation, strange sicknesses and untold depression with compatriots resorting to suicide missions and slavery as options.
“Under President Buhari, our nation has become dangerously divided. Violent clashes and bloodletting has become the order of the day. Rights of citizens are daily violated; democratic institutions, including the courts and the National Assembly have come under attack; elections are rigged with impunity; the unity of our beloved country is now under stress,” part of the statement read.
