The PDP also notes that, this is beside allegations of him being in a 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.

Therefore, the party charges the Buhari Presidency to immediately order an open investigation into the matter and expose those in this scandalous racket.
Saying that, 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 is behoves on the Presidency to come clean as well as order an investigation into this huge allegation.
