PDP Call On Buhari To Probe Adams Oshiomhole, Amaechi, Others



Buhari States Stance On Bauchi, Edo Assembly Crisis

President Muhammadu Buhari has been called out by the Peoples Democratic Party, on Tuesday, charging him to order a probe of the Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi and the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Adams Oshiomhole.

The President was called on to order a probe into corruption allegations filed against them if his anti-graft fight was sincere.

The party stated this while reacting to the claim of the Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo that Buhari has ordered the prosecution of former Secretary to the Government of the Federation, SGF, Babachir Lawal.

PDP’s spokesperson, Kola Ologbondiyan, in the statement stated that Buhari should go beyond Lawal and the former Director General of the National Intelligence Agency, NIA, Wale Oke and probe members of the APC.

“Singling out Babachir Lawal and Ayodele Oke, for prosecution, while providing official cover to numerous other indicted APC leaders and persons close to him, President Buhari has further confirmed that he is indeed partisan and insincere in prosecuting the anti-corruption fight.

“Moreover, the fact that, according to Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, Mr President had to give his nod before Babachir and Oke could be prosecuted, also goes to further confirm that President Buhari has annexed the system and directly determines who is prosecuted and who is spared.

“We, therefore, challenge President Buhari to immediately order the prosecution of all APC leaders, particularly members of his Presidential Campaign Council, beginning with the APC factional National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole, the campaign Director-General, Rotimi Amaechi, other directors and zonal coordinators, who have allegations of corruption hanging on their necks.

“Mr President should also immediately order the prosecution of the former aide to the First Lady, Aisha Buhari, Mr Baba Inna, who was arrested in September last year, over accusations of receiving N2.5 billion from politicians, businessmen and women on behalf of the First Lady.

“He should also order the prosecution of Mrs Amina Mohammed, who while being paraded by the Department of State Services (DSS), last year stated in public that persons close to President Buhari were involved in serial fraud and looting of public resources under the official cover of the Buhari Presidency.

“President Buhari should also order an open inquest into the alleged involvement of some individuals said to be close to the Buhari Presidency in the N1.032 trillion alleged corrupt acquisitions in 9Mobile and Keystone Bank PLC.

“He is also invited to order an investigation into allegations that persons close to him and serving in his Presidency took N500 million as the bribe to reduce the fine imposed on a telecommunication company operating in the country, from N1.03 trillion to N330 billion.”

“President Buhari to allow an inquest into the N14 trillion looted oil money under his watch, as detailed in the NNPC leaked memo; the handling of the repatriated $322m that has been siphoned under the guise of sharing to the poor; the N33 billion Internally Displace Persons (IDP) intervention fund and the billions of naira already frittered through the ‘Tradermoni scheme’.

“Until Mr President musters the required political will to carry out these actions, his war against corruption remains a charade.”
