The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has asked the Presidency to perish the thought of concealing the reported arrest and deportation of President Muhammadu Buhari’s known confidant, Nasir Danu, at the Heathrow Airport, United Kingdom, for alleged passport scam and money laundering.
The PDP insists that the silence by the Presidency on the matter since the report of Danu’s arrest and deportation is self-indicting, particularly given his reported confessions and alleged links to persons closely related to Mr. President.
PDP, in a statement by its Kola Ologbondiyan, its National Publicity Secretary, said that the Buhari’s presidency must not sweep the matter under the carpet following apprehensions in the public space that Danu was caught while allegedly ferrying stolen currencies for persons said to be close to the Presidency.
According to the party, the Buhari Presidency must also speak out on this huge scandal and allegations that Danu’s has been in the business of connecting the said close relation of the President with many oil contractors for alleged underhand deals through which billions of naira get frittered.
“The PDP notes that this is beside allegations of being a front for scandalous contracts running into billions of naira from the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) and the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency, among other government agencies.
“The party cautions the Buhari Presidency to perish the thoughts of concealing this scandal as it is already in the public domain with Nigerians demanding for investigations.
“The PDP therefore charges the Buhari Presidency to immediately order an open investigation into the matter and expose those in this scandalous racket.
“Nigerians can now further see how the Buhari Presidency stinks.
“Our party therefore insists that for a government that always orchestrates claims of integrity and zero tolerance for corruption, it behoves on the Presidency to come clean as well as order an investigation into this huge allegation”, the statement concluded.
