The arrest of Nasir Danu, a confidant of President Muhammadu Buhari at the Heathrow Airport, United Kingdom, for alleged passport scam and money laundering, has drawn the comment of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
In a statement the main opposition’s National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan released, it took a dig at Buhari urging him to break his silence on Danu’s arrest.
The party alleged that the suspect was in the business of laundering illicit money for the president’s close relations.
The statement reads in part: “The party says the Buhari Presidency must also speak out on this huge scandal and allegations that Danu’s has been in the business of connecting the said close relation of the President with many oil contractors for alleged underhand deals through which billions of naira get frittered. The PDP notes that this is beside allegations of being a front for scandalous contracts running into billions of naira from the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) and the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency, among other government agencies.
“The party cautions the Buhari Presidency to perish the thoughts of concealing this scandal as it is already in the public domain with Nigerians demanding for investigations.”
