The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has asked the National Assembly to sanitize the Presidential Villa by probing allegations of illegal allotment of offices and apartments to unauthorised persons, “including scammers and corruption fronts” in Aso Rock. The party, in a statement yesterday by its National Publicity Secretary Kola Ologbondiyan, specifically demanded the National Assembly to investigate the alleged abuse of office by President Muhammadu Buhari and apply appropriate sanctions following the alleged revelation that he assigned official facilities in the villa to unauthorized persons that have no official roles in governance.
The party described what it termed the dirty public fight between the First Lady, Aisha Buhari and President Buhari’s cousins, over rooms in the villa as disgraceful. It said the feud uncovered the alleged impunity, disorderliness and vanity that pervaded the presidency, adding that the presidential villa had been turned into a house of comedy and an overcrowded quarters for illegal occupants. “Nigerians can now see why it has become difficult for our nation to witness any stability or progress under the Buhari Presidency and why the Buhari-led federal government has been bedevilled by confusion, infighting, policy flip-flops, statutory violations, promotion of violence, ingrained corruption and administrative indolence while millions of Nigerians wallow in poverty and neglect,” the PDP said.
