PDP tackles APC over alleged N25 trillion missing fund, demands probe

PDP invites Nigerians to unite in demanding for the recovery of the N25tn

The Peoples Democratic Party has expressed shock over the alleged disappearance of a fresh N10.1tn from the national treasury.

In a statement by the party’s spokesperson, Kola Ologbondiyan, the party said it was clear that corruption was on the increase under the All Progressives Congress (APC) and Muhammadu Buhari-led government.

Part of the statement reads, “Our nation has again been jolted by reports in the public space that a whopping N9.6tn ($20 bn) and another N500bn belonging to the Treasury Single Account (TSA), have been reported missing and allegedly diverted to APC interests.

“This fresh N10.1trn scandal is beside the earlier N15 trn, reportedly stolen by APC leaders from various government agencies, including the stealing of N9.3tn as detailed in the leaked NNPC memo, bringing the sum looted in these cases to N25.1tn.

“It indeed speaks volumes that while the Buhari Presidency is claiming that it has no funds to finance the 2021 budget of N13.08tn, a humongous N10.1trn belonging to the nation is said to have disappeared into the thin air.

“The PDP expresses concerns over the level of rapacious looting by the APC leaders and the cabal in the Buhari Presidency, stressing that, it is clear that our nation has been seized by ferocious economic brigands in very high places.”

The opposition party further demanded an investigation into the missing fund

“The PDP invites Nigerians to unite in demanding for the recovery of the N25tn, which our party insists should be directed to critical sectors of youth development, job creation, infrastructural development and security,” the statement added.
