The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has accused President Muhammadu Buhari of committing “mother of corruption” with the loot recovered from the late former Head of State, General Sani Abacha.
The party’s national chairman, Uche Secondus made this accusation, vowing, that “when” the PDP “takes over” power in 2019, Buhari and his All Progressives Congress party must be made to account for what they did with the loot recovered from the late despot.
He was addressing a meeting of Ogun State executives of the PDP and other party faithful in the state, led by the state chairman, Sikirulahi Ogundele and governorship aspirant, Oladipupo Adebutu.
“They said they are fighting corruption and the mother of corruption is being perpetrated under this government. Abacha’s looted funds withdrawn and being given out to people. That is the mother of all corruption.
“How on earth will a government engage in mother of corruption? Abacha’s loot money has been withdrawn from the banks and being given to cronies.
“We want to assure President Muhammadu Buhari and All Progressives Congress, that they will be held accountable. That is mother of corruption. No government will put money in baskets and starts sharing. When PDP takes over in 2019, we will ask them to refund every kobo of Abacha’s loot,
“It is primitive to be spending money without proper appropriation. I believe that the money is meant for the APC government for election in 2019 and they have started using it. If they do, when we take over, we will probe it,” he said.
Speaking on Ekiti governorship election, Secondus expressed optimism that the party would emerge winner of the governorship election in the state, saying that the plots by the APC-led “Federal government to take Ekiti State by force” cannot subvert the will of the people of the state.
He promised members of the Ogun State executive that the national body was going to wade into the crisis of the party in the state to resolve it once and for all.
“You will see signs and wonders. In a matter of weeks, there will be shaking and shifting. The APC government has nothing to offer, they are afraid. What they are doing today is not new, it has happened before. We can’t be intimidated,” he said.
