Where Is The N10 Trillion You Spent On Security? PDP Asks Buhari, APC



PDP Buhari

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has called on President Muhammadu Buhari and the All Progressives Congress (APC) to account for the N10.02 trillion claimed to have been spent on security under their watch.

The PDP said the call was predicated on heightening allegations of diversion of funds meant for security as well as an alert by a pro-transparency organization, BudgIT on the absence of proper audit on the spending of national security funds from 2015 to 2021.

“The party asserts that such situation points to why terrorism, banditry, kidnapping and other forms of violent acts had continued to worsen, with widespread complaints of lack of adequate combat equipment for our security forces, for which our gallant soldiers as well as thousands of our compatriots are paying with their blood under President Buhari and the APC,” the PDP said in a statement issued by its spokesman, Kola Ologbondinyan.

“Nigerians can recall that the APC administration is yet to come clean on claims by the National Security Adviser (NSA), Gen. Babagana Monguno, that billions of naira meant for security could not be traced.

 “Our party is appalled that the APC and its administration have turned the heightened insecurity in our country which was caused by their incompetence, divisiveness and gross mismanagement of our national diversity, into a bloody merchandise for APC leaders.

“The PDP challenges President Buhari, as the commander-in-chief, to speak out on the alleged diversion of security funds under his command.

“The party also calls on the two chambers of the National Assembly to immediately commence investigation into the spending of the N10.02 trillion.

“The PDP is further alarmed by the clear scheme by the APC and its administration to frustrate the well-intentioned strategies from the PDP to check the tide of terrorism and banditry in our country.

“Our party rejects the move by the APC to frustrate the establishment of a National Borders Protection Force as suggested by the PDP to check further infiltration by terrorist elements as well as inflow of illegal arms into our country.

“The PDP insists that the setting up of a bureaucratic National Center for Control of Small Arms by the APC administration instead of a pro-active and operational Borders Protection Force that will ensure water tight security at our borders, further exposes the lack of commitment by the APC to secure our borders and check the inflow of terrorists and ammunition.”
