The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) says President Muhammadu Buhari-led presidency and the All Progressives Congress (APC) are desperate to remain in power at all costs so as to continue to exploit Nigerians and protect the party's corrupt leader.
Going further, the PDP said the APC wants to remain in power to prevent investigation into N14 trillion allegedly stolen under its watch.
The party said this include "the N9 trillion stolen from the Ministry of Petroleum Resources, as detailed in the leaked NNPC memo; the over N1.4 trillion alleged oil subsidy sleaze and the N1.1 trillion worth of crude diverted using 18 unregistered companies linked to APC interests.
"This is in addition to the N33billion National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) fund, and the over N18 billion stolen out of the N48 billion approved by the National Assembly in the 2017 budget for the rehabilitation of IDPs in the northeast, among others," PDP said.
Going further, PDP added that "the Buhari-led APC administration is desperate to avoid an investigation into its unwholesome borrowings that led to the escalation of our nation's debt stock from N12.12 trillion in 2015 to an overburdening N24.39 trillion in 2018."
