The Peoples Democratic Social gathering has demanded the arrest and speedy prosecution of the Minister of Aviation, Senator Hadi Sirika, for using a’ non-existent nationwide provider’ to defraud the nation to the tune of N1.2 billion.
The social gathering says President Buhari ought to communicate out on this act of corruption beneath his watch, significantly following allegations that funds launched for the phantom mission have been diverted to finance his 2019 re-election bid.
The social gathering mentioned the purported indefinite suspension of the Nigeria Air mission is an element of the fraudulent script by the Buhari Presidency, which is aware of that it can not go far with the lie, since the mission doesn’t exist in the first place.
It might be recalled that the PDP had in July alerted the nation that the unveiling of a non existent nationwide provider was an enormous rip-off designed to create an impression of achievement, in addition to a conduit by corrupt All Progressives Congress (APC) leaders and the Buhari Presidency to siphon public funds for egocentric functions.
Nigerians now know that the cause for the rush to London to ‘unveil’ mere drawings of airplanes, title, emblem and imaginary routes of a non-existent fleet as our nationwide provider, with none buildings, operational license, clear partnership agreements and no type of floor exercise any the place in our nation.
What the APC and the Buhari Presidency failed to perceive is that lies, regardless of how ornamented, at all times have their expiring dates. The reality could also be suppressed for some time, however it at all times has a approach of coming to gentle. It’s now clear to the world that the Buhari administration is corrupt and lacks the capability to productively interact in opposition to acts of corruption.
That is the main cause our economic system went right into a recession and international traders have misplaced confidence in our nation. The PDP calls for that the N1.2 billion be instantly recovered and directed to crucial interventions in the aviation sector, together with the unpaid pension owed to retired aviation staff.
Lastly, the PDP counsels the APC and Buhari Presidency to know that Nigerians can now see by their corruption and lies for which they may deal them a humiliating verdict at the polls, come 2019.
