The National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Lanre Issa-Onilu, has said President Muhammadu Buhari’s integrity has remained without stain because he has not diverted public funds into private pockets since assuming office in 2015.
Issa Onilu stated this on Tuesday in a brief chat with reporters in his office at the APC secretariat, Abuja.
He said the fact that the only seeming scandal the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, could associate with President Buhari after his three and half years in office had to do with the now rested issue of WAEC certificate, was proof of his strong moral principles.
His words: “If after President Buhari’s three and half years in office and his signing of over N20 trillion as national budget within the period, but the only thing the PDP or any other person had to talk about was his certificate, it means this man (Buhari) is truly a man of integrity.
“I expect them to have nailed a more important issue or put a finger on something that tells on his integrity or an issue that has made this country prostrate under PDP; that is, corruption at all levels whereby public money is diverted to private pockets.”
Recall that the PDP through its spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan, had in statement accused the Presidency of displaying corruption and decadence by involving in manipulations, forgery and lies in an attempt to hoodwink Nigerians with bogus claims over Buhari’s WAEC certificate.
