President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration, following fresh reports of clandestine plots by the Presidency to pillage the looted funds repatriated by the United States. Bagudu’s $100m.
The U.S. had revealed its opposition to plans by the Buhari government to hand about $100 million the American authorities said was stolen by former dictator Sani Abacha to Governor Atiku Bagudu of Kebbi state.
But the PDP, in a statement issued by its spokesperson, Kola Ologbondiyan, said the recent revelation of huge corruption in the Buhari administration, had further exposed the fact that the administration had been living a lie; parading as saints with a false anti-corruption posturing, whereas it had been swimming in a huge ocean of corruption and massive treasury looting. Bagudu’s $100m.
The PDP said the report that the Buhari-led Government has been blocking attempts to recover part of the looted funds traced to Kebbi State Governor, Atiku Bagudu, the Chairman of All Progressives Congress (APC) Governors Forum, who was reportedly indicted by the US for allegedly helping in transferring billions of dollar out of the country during the military era, speaks volumes of the corruption and concealment going on in the Buhari Presidency.
“Moreover, further revelations in the report that instead of recovering the stolen money, the Federal Government is even in the process of funneling $100 million (N36.3 billion) out of the looted funds to Governor Bagudu, highlights the humongous sleaze, duplicity and treachery that pervade the Buhari administration.
