The People Democratic Party has charge the EFCC to prove the strength of its integrity by investigating and prosecuting the All Progressive Congress leader, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, over allegations of tax fraud by Alpha Beta, a company linked to him.
Failure of EFCC to invite and question Asiwaju Tinubu over this allegation of N160B tax fraud by Alpha Beta will not only suggest that the EFCC has become corrupt under Buhari Presidency, but also exposes the level of rot in the All Progressive Congress administration.
Nigerians can now see how the same Magu-led EFCC, which rushes to pounce on, arrest and lock up innocent Nigerians, particularly, perceived political opponents of Buhari, without investigation, has practically gone frozen because a member of the APC cabal is involved.
Does it not smack of hypocrisy that President Buhari, who boasted of jailing more looters, is now looking the other way, after a whistle-blower alerted that Tinubu’s Alpha Beta, allegedly swindled Nigerians to the tune of a whopping N160 billion in tax fraud?
Is it not equally hypocritical that under the same Buhari’s watch, where the FIRS has threatened to block the bank accounts of tax evaders, a leader of his party had been dragged before the EFCC, yet Mr President is pretending to be unaware?
If President Buhari is as clean as his handlers would want Nigerians to believe; if the Presidency is not complicit of corruption, the PDP challenges Mr. President to allow an investigation and prosecution of Alpha Beta, in an open court, just as his government has been harrassing the members of the opposition, as well as perceived opponents.
Nigerians can recall that when President Buhari declared that he will jail more
looters, the PDP welcomed him and challenged him to start with looters in the APC and the Presidency and we insist that, in line with the promise President Buhari made to Nigerians, Alpha Beta should be charged accordingly.
The PDP also insists that President Buhari cannot be approving the hounding of innocent opposition members or his perceived enemies on allegations of corruption while at the same time always shielding and defending his party members openly accused and indicted for corruption, in addition to certificate forgers and national youth service corps deserters, holding top positions in his government.
Finally, Mr. President should note that Nigerians are still waiting for his response regarding alleged stealing of N9 trillion at the Nigeria Natidnal Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) under his watch; the alleged NIA trillion oil subsidy fraud involving officials at the Presidency; the alleged diversion of NI.I trillion worth of crude oil in 2017 by APC interests; alleged stealing of N18 billion Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) funds; the alleged stealing of over N25 billion National Health Insurance Fund (NHIS}, which investigation was stalled by the Presidency, among others for which his Presidency has practically turned into a citadel of iniquity and corruption.
