The Peoples Democratic Party PDP, has called on the Chairman, Presidential Advisory Committee on Corruption, Prof. Itse Sagay to tell President Buhari that corruption resides in his Presidency.
The opposition party in a press statement signed by its Media and Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, on Friday noted that Sagay should be bold enough to tell Buhari the truth about corruption in his administration.
Adding that a president who surrounds himself with corrupt team could be not fight corruption.
The statement reads in part, “The party said the Chairman of Presidential Advisory Committee on Corruption, Prof. Itse Sagay, at his age and status, ought to be bold enough to tell President Buhari that corruption resides in the Presidential Villa and that a President who surrounds himself with corrupt persons as ministers, special advisers and confidants cannot fight corruption.”
The party challenged Buhari to speak on the alleged siphoning of N9tn oil money under his administration as detailed in the leaked NNPC memo.
The PDP urged Sagay to take a face-saving measure by demanding for an investigation into the alleged N1.4tn oil subsidy involving some cabals within the Buhari’s administration.
“The PDP tasks Prof. Sagay to clear his conscience by using his position to ask President @MBuhari to answer Nigerians on the alleged siphoning of N9 trillion oil money through shady contracts, under his watch, as detailed in the leaked NNPC memo.
“The party further advised that Prof. Sagay could take a face-saving measure by demanding an investigation into the alleged corruption in the handling of the N1.4 trillion oil subsidy involving the cabal in the Presidency and certain APC leaders, in addition to the reported stealing of over N1.1 trillion worth of crude under Mr. President’s watch,” the party said.
The PDP further alleged that the Presidential Advisory Committee should also investigate the allegations of the First Lady, Aisah Buhari that N500bn meant for Social Investment Programs was siphoned under the Buhari’s watch.
The party said “It is strange to many Nigerians that Prof. Sagay, as the Chairman of the anti-corruption committee, could not summon the boldness to ask President Buhari to order an investigation into allegations by the First Lady, Aisha Buhari, that the N500bn meant for Social Investment Program was diverted to private purses.”
The opposition party also raised eyebrows at the silence of Buhari over the arrest and deportation of one of his confidants Nasir Banu, from the United kingdom for an alleged passport scam and money laundering.
“Furthermore, Prof. Sagay and President @MBuhari had been mute over the recent arrest of President Buhari’s confidant, Nasir Banu in the United Kingdom for alleged passport scam and money laundering, while allegedly ferrying stolen money to persons said to be close to the Buhari Presidency,” the party noted.
The party further said “Also, Prof. Sagay is yet to speak out on the recent arrest of a scammer, Abdulrauf Illyasu, who operates from within the Presidential Villa, and never said anything about the arrest of former aide to the First Lady as well as one Amina Mohammed, who openly confessed fronting for persons close to the President for serial fraud, contract scams and looting of public resources.”
