To the President Muhammadu Buhari, the Peoples Democratic Party has suddenly forgotten all the bad history and antecedents and has decided to point accusing fingers on others, ranting against the Buhari’s administration’s war against corruption and alleging its failure.
In President Buhari’s Statements “Let Peoples Democratic Party should think first of all withdraw the Governorship nomination it gave to Bala Mohammed of Adamawa state and Ahmadu Fintiri of Bauchi state respectively, before its open mouth to talk on the efforts of this administration in fighting corruption. Or else, they should shut up their mouth forever and leave his administration to do what it dare not attempt.”
President Buhari also recalls that PDP governors were on bail and trial on several counts of fraud and embezzlement.
