PDP Accuses Buhari Of Shielding Oshiomhole From Investigations



The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Wednesday accused President Muhammadu Buhari of working to conceal the embarrassment of the investigations of the national chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole by the Department of State Services, DSS.

The party in a statement said that it was fully aware of the investigations by the DSS of the national chairman but expressed concern that the president with other elements in the presidency were working to cover up the investigations.

The PDP statement followed the revelation of the quizzing of the national chairman of the ruling party by the DSS last Sunday.

The PDP in the statement issued by its spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan said that information at its disposal “reveals that apart from the billions 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 organizations ahead of the 2019 election, part of which was allegedly diverted for personal use of some APC leaders.”

The PDP noted that it had always alerted Nigerians of the corruption allegation burden on the former governor and the continued official cover provided for him by the Presidency including the alleged stalling of his investigation and prosecution by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.

“If the 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 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 Presidency does not have the moral rectitude to speak on corruption,” it added.
