Corruption Under Buhari’s Administration Left Unchecked – PDP
The President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration has been challenged by the opposition party, the Peoples Democratic Party, for not speaking out on the allegation that there was an illegal award of oil contracts worth $25bn under its watch.
PDP lamented that the failure of Buhari to address the alleged illegal award of contracts by the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) has allegedly brought embarrassment to the part of the country, leading to Nigeria to be called ‘Kleptocracy’
In a statement signed by Mr Kola Ologbondiyan, the National Publicity Secretary of the PDP, stated that Nigerians wondered how Buhari felt when he read the new book of John Campbell, a former United States Ambassador to Nigeria, Matthew Page, where Nigeria was described as “a kleptocracy”, because of the alleged humongous corruption, which the PDP spokesman said is left unchecked by Buhari in his administration.
He added that the new book had further vindicated the stance of the PDP that corruption had skyrocketed under President Buhari.
Apart from that, he added that reports by other international bodies, including the United States Department of State, the Amnesty International and Transparency International, which recently declared that corruption had escalated in Nigeria under President Buhari, despite Buhari’s anti-corruption claims, were testimonies of the party’s claim.
