Presidency Reacts To PDP’s Claims On Fuel Subsidy
Mr Adesina who described the comment as laughable and ridiculous also said that the allegations were alien to the government,
It will be recalled that as earlier published by Naija News, the PDP’s National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, had accused President Buhari of corruption over the fuel subsidy regime of his government.
The party also asked the President to submit himself for an independent inquest into his handling of the N1.4 trillion oil subsidy regime as well as expose all forms of financial misappropriations within his government.
In response to the comments, Mr Adesina said after 16 years of ruling, the PDP is only starting to play opposition, however, “it is playing it all wrong and it is crying wolf where there is none”.
Speaking further, the President’s spokesperson noted that he may have questioned the sanity of the Mr Ologbondiyan if he hadn’t known him well enough.
He described the comments as laughable and ridiculous, adding that the allegations were alien to the government.
He said: “When you introduced this topic, you needed to have seen the laughter, the uproar that came from me. I laughed so much I almost tumbled from my chair because it is very ridiculous and laughable.
“I looked at my friend and colleague Kola Ologboniyan speaking, if not that I know him well because we are tribesmen, by tribesmen I mean from the media constituency. If not that I have known him for some time, I would have said: “is codeine of tramadol at work? Because those allegations are simply ridiculous and laughable.
