How Buhari is sharing $6bn looted funds to APC candidates to rig elections

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has accused the Presidency of releasing over N6 billion looted from federal funds to All Progressives Congress (APC) National Assembly candidates.

The party alleged, that the money was meant for the candidates to use and execute the party’s rigging plans in the February 23 presidential and National Assembly elections.

This was contained in a statement PDP spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan, released on Tuesday.

He said, “Information available to our party shows that each of the 109 APC senatorial candidates received N20 million, the 360 APC House of Representatives candidates are being given N10 million each, while various amounts are being disbursed by the Buhari Presidency to some other APC leaders for the rigging plot.

“The looted funds are to be used by the APC to dress fake security agents, arm thugs and bribe compromised INEC officials and manipulate the elections in the various Senatorial and Federal constituencies across the country.

“Intelligence at our disposal indicates that part of the money was sourced from alleged diversion of funds meant for the rehabilitation of Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in various states of the federation.

“This is in addition to monies allegedly siphoned from some income generating agencies, including the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS) and the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC),” the party statement read in part.

It added that it was “indeed a callous act of wickedness and impunity that the Buhari Presidency, in its claimed integrity, would descend to the lowest level of decadence by looting of funds meant for the development and wellbeing of Nigerians to finance their rigging plots.”

The PDP therefore charges Nigerians to be alert and continue to rally behind the people’s candidate, Atiku Abubakar, in the all-important quest to rescue our dear nation from the clutches of the corrupt, dictatorial and incompetent Buhari administration, which now seeks to truncate our electoral process and derail our democracy.
