PDP Claim They Will Probe Buhari On Abacha’s Recovered Loot
Uche Secondus, The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, has claimed if they win the presidential election in 2019, they will probe the President Muhammadu Buhari on the way him and his administration used the $322m looted funds recovered from the late dictator, Sani Abacha.
This was declared in Abeokuta on Friday whilst the meeting he held with the state executive and party faithful in the state, led by a governorship aspirant, Oladipupo Adebutu and the state chairman, Sikirulahi Ogundele.
Secondus put down the anti- corruption war of the President, arguing that his administration claimed to be fighting corruption “whereas it is committing mother of corruption” with Abacha’s loot.
He said, “How on earth will a government engage in mother of corruption? Abacha’s loot has been withdrawn from the banks and being given to cronies.
“We want to assure President Muhammadu Buhari and the All Progressives Congress that they will be held accountable. No government will put money in baskets and starts sharing.
“When the PDP takes over in 2019, we will ask them to refund every kobo of Abacha’s loot. It is primitive to be spending money without proper appropriation.
“I believe that the money is meant for the 2019 elections and they have started using it. If they do, when we take over, we will probe it.”
On Ekiti poll, he boasted that the party and its governorship candidate, Prof. Kolapo Olusola, would win Saturday (today’s) governorship election in the state.
