$2.8bn missing under his watch : Buhari demands release of audit report
Against the backdrop of his complicity as oil minister, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari has asked the relaese of the forensic audit on the missing $20 billion oil cash under his watch.
Gen. Buhari, in a statement yesterday, said the report must be released “in the spirit of the war against corruption”.
The APC presidential standard bearer accused the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) of “digging graves in search of rumours” to confuse the voters.
The statement, signed by the Director of Communication of the Buhari Campaign Organisation, Mr. Dele Alake, reads: “There is a clear linkage between the billions of naira lost to corruption and the poor living conditions of our people: it is the resources meant for the development of our people that are diverted to service the greed of a few.
In the spirit of the war against corruption, we demand the release of the Audit Report of the Missing 20 billion dollars.
“Clearly unable to oppose us with an equally clean and unassailable ticket, we can understand why our opponents are running from pillar to post, digging graves in search of rumours in the impossible hope of misinforming unsuspecting voters and spinning a web of blackmail and deceit.
“In this electoral contest of vision and moral stature, only the guilty needs to be afraid. Luckily, our lives are like the open book.
We challenge our opponents to stake their desire to lead Nigeria again on what they have achieved with the billions of resources they received.
This is not the time for distractions and red herrings. Nigerians are the ultimate judge of stewardship. They will deliver their verdict, loud and clear to the world on February 14, 2015.”
