The New Nigeria People’s Party said the list of treasury looters recently released by President Buhari targeting the opposition party indicates that the president is already enveloped in the fever of losing 2019 election.
The NNPP Chairman Bauchi state chapter, Engineer Mohammed Barde told newsmen in an exclusive interview in Bauchi.
The chairman lambasted the APC-led federal government under Buhari, saying the party’s failure informed their decision to manufacture the list of the so-called looters.
Barde stressed that there is no competent court of law that has tried and found some of them guilty, urging those listed to approach a competent court to challenge same.
“We expect the list should capture APC chieftains that were summarily disengaged from office linking to corrupt practices like former Secretary to the Federal Government, Babachir David and Mr Ayo, sacked Director general Nigeria Intelligence Agency among others, but to our dismay, Buhari spared them just because they are APC members,” Barde fumed.
NNPP according to Barde will exhaust all avenues to ensure Buhari is removed through democratic process in 2019 election.
It could be recalled that the FG had released the list of treasury looters containing only opposition members recently.
Barde cautioned Buhari to henceforth stop intimidating the opposition through the EFCC to his advantage ahead of 2019 election while herdsmen are being used as a third force with impunity.
The party described the move as unacceptable and undemocratic, especially where herders are allowed to kill and maim innocent citizens without any sanction by the FG.
He challenged the FG to immediately justify its stands by including APC members in the allege looters’ list to substantiate their claims.
