INSURGENCY:PDP ACCUSES RULING PARTY OF SIPHONING N48BN MEANT FOR REBUILDING NORTH EAST STATES

The leading opposition party in Nigeria – the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has alleged that the leaders of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) are running amok over their involvement in the siphoning of the N48 billion meant for the rebuilding of six northeast states ravaged by insurgency.

In a statement released by the party’s National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan via party’s official twitter handle account, the party also accused some APC Leaders of looting the N25 billion meant for the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS) among others.

The PDP which labelled APC as a “house-of-corruption,” further expressed displeasure that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has abandoned its responsibilities on the N33 billion National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) Funds as exposed by the House of Representatives that funds were never used for the provision of emergency food for victims of insurgency in the northeast among others.

The tweets read:

“APCHouseOfCorruption – Some known @OfficialAPCNg leaders are now running amok over their involvement in the siphoning of the N48 billion meant for the rebuilding of six northeast states ravaged by insurgency as well as the looting of N25 billion from the NHIS among others.

“APCHouseOfCorruption – The @officialEFCC has abandoned its responsibilities on the N33 Billion NEMA Funds as exposed by the House of Representatives that funds were never used for the provision of emergency food for victims of insurgency in the northeast among others.
