Buhari Is Surrounded By Corrupt Politicians – PDP Chieftain
A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic party (PDP), in the Federal Capital Territory has described President Muhammadu Buhari’s war on corruption as lopsided and targeted at the opposition.
Hon Bitrus Kura Tanko, a former Secretary of the PDP in the FCT and now its Chairmanship flagbearer in the forthcoming area council election in the territory disclosed this in an interview with Peoples Daily Weekend.
He said: “In fact, I believe that the fight against corruption is selective. Selective in the sense that we are all Nigerians, our behavior and thinking pattern is almost the same. Either in All Progressive Congress (APC) or Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), a Nigerian is a Nigerian. We think and behave almost the same way. You cannot tell me that it is only the PDP members that are corrupt. The president is surrounded by corrupt people and he is pretending not to be seeing what they are doing or what they seem to have done in the past. Take the issue of Dasuki for example; everybody in Nigeria knows that the President is on a vendetta mission, I want to tell you that this fight against graft by APC administration is bound to fail. If truly the president is serious and sincere about this fight, let the fight be holistic. This is because our people say that charity begins at home; therefore let him begin with his party, APC. Come to think of it, how did he get his campaign funds? Even when he openly told Nigerians that he borrowed money to buy his expression of interest form, but he ran a multi-billion naira campaign at the end of the day. Where did he get the money from? Let him come out and tell Nigerians how he raised his money? Who are those that sponsored him? Who are those that financed his campaign and what was the source of their funds? You can fool some people sometime but you cannot fool all the people all the time.”
