The Peoples Democratic Party has decided to once again, grab the spotlight by unleashing a barrage of allegations against President Muhammadu Buhari, which it refused to substantiate or provide reasonable details.
The party, speaking through its National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh, explained that it has “incontrovertible evidence that grave corrupt practices are ongoing and allowed to fester by associates and cronies of government.”
The statement said in part:
“The onus lies on the APC-led Federal Government to wage a credible holistic anti-corruption war by first purging itself of unclean association and coming out clear on sleazes already going on in government quarters since it took office in May.
“Whereas the PDP restates its respect for the person and office of the President as well as our support for the war against corruption, it is incumbent on us to alert Nigerians of the prevailing circumstances around this government that are capable of fundamentally undermining good governance if left unchecked.
“Charity, they say, begins at home. For the APC-led government, it has now become a question of ‘physician, heal thyself.’
“Every discerning mind knows that this administration is not executing a credible holistic war against corruption because it is a product of corruption, surrounded by corrupt persons; a factor apparently responsible for its obvious blind eyes to huge sleazes now being perpetrated in government agencies by persons claiming closeness to the President.”
