The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, on Thursday alleged that the Presidency under President Muhammadu Buhari has become a den of thieves.
The party said the shocking fact that a scammer linked to the Presidency, Abdulrauf Illyasu, enjoys an “office accommodation within the safety and cover of the Presidential Villa, from where he allegedly carries out his fraudulent assignments, was a hard evidence that the Buhari Presidency breeds and facilitates swindlers, charlatans and treasury looters.”
In a statement signed by its spokesperson, Kola Ologbondiyan, the party observed that nothing was “impossible for a Presidency replete with persons who thrive in lies, false claims, certificate forgery, bribery, intimidation and recruiting of fraudulent and corrupt persons as ministers, special advisers and clandestine fronts for financial sleazes.”
The statement read: “Our party holds that it is the height of deceit and duplicity that an administration that boasts of integrity and zero tolerance for corruption could be the very sanctuary of the underworld.
“Only last week, a known confidant of Mr. President, Nasir Danu, was arrested at Heathrow Airport, United Kingdom for alleged international passport scam and money laundering while allegedly ferrying stolen currencies for persons said to be close to the Presidency.
“This is in addition to further allegations that Danu has been fronting for a close relation of the President for shady oil deals and huge contracts running into billions of naira in major revenue earning
