Oshiohmole

The level of stealing by National Chairman of the All Progressive Congress (APC), is so huge that he has now become a risk to Nigeria, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), said on Wednesday.

It is for this reason that President Muhammadu Buhari, must wash his hands of his case and allow the security operatives who have now gone after him to complete their job and save the nation from the consequences of his action.

The party, which came hard on the former governor Edo State, described Buhari’s alleged interference in the matter, in which he is alleged to be doing everything to stymie the investigation and shield him as reprehensible.

The party, which said it was privy to the pressure from the Presidency on the Department of State Services (DSS), handling the investigation and which reportedly detained and grilled Oshiomhole on Wednesday, to let him off the hook for fears that his investigation will unearth the complicity of the Presidency and other key APC members in the scam, maintained that Nigerians were already aware of the full story and the attempt at a cover-up, would backfire.

“Information available to the PDP reveals that apart from the billion of naira, he allegedly stole from the coffers of Edo state when he was governor, Oshiomhole is facing charges of allegedly collecting billions of naira bribe from some ministers and other APC sources in Adamawa, Rivers, Kano and Imo states to manipulate the 2019 electoral process.

“This is in addition to allegedly collecting billions of naira from Presidency sources to influence electoral officers, independent observers and certain polling organisations ahead of the 2019 election, part of which was allegedly diverted for personal use of some APC 
leaders.

“The PDP had always alerted Nigerians of the corruption allegation burden on the APC Chairman and the continued official cover provided for him by the Buhari Presidency including stalling his investigation and prosecution by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) over alleged stealing of billions of naira from Edo State coffers,” the party, said, in a statement, signed by its spokesman, Kola Ologbodiyan.

The statement added: “If the Buhari Presidency has nothing to hide; if it is not complicit in the alleged scam, it should allow the DSS and EFCC a free hand to investigate and prosecute his party's factional chairman, Adams Oshiomhole, particularly now that all issues are laid bare before 
Nigerians.

“As long as the DSS and the EFCC are not allowed to put Oshiomhole into the dock, the Buhari Presidency does not have the moral rectitude to speak on corruption. This is especially as the involvement of the DSS shows that the corruption burden of the APC Chairman has already become a security risk for our nation.

“Finally, the PDP cautions that under no circumstance should the Presidency escort Adams Oshiomhole out of the country, just like it did for the disgraced Buhari’s former Minister of Finance.
