Buhari Tells Jonathan to submit the forensic audit report from KPMG on the missing $20 billion

February 25, 2015 3:35 am

The All Progressives Congress Presidential Campaign Organisation
(APCPCO) has challenged and his Peoples
Democratic Party () government, to live up to their flaunted belief
in the rule of law and due process, by acceding to the request of the
National Assembly to submit the forensic audit report from KPMG on the missing $20 billion.

It also urged the president to publish same in
mainstream newspapers for Nigerians to assess or query the degree of
transparency involved in the controversial transaction.

“So many respected experts on the national economy have condemned the
wanton waste of the country’s hard currency earnings at the Nigerian
National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC). Worse still, those in charge have
treated Nigerians with impunity by hiding the facts relating to
petro-dollar trade from the taxpayers. Some of them have been
gallivanting and globe-trotting around the world in luxury while their
compatriots languish in poverty and squalor,”
Malam Garba Shehu, APCPCO Director of Media and Publicity, stated in a signed statement, on Monday, in Abuja.

The APCPCO spokesman questioned the audacity of the president, PDP and
NNPC in disobeying the NASS request to scrutinise the KPMG audit of an
alleged grossly corrupt government agency (NNPC).

“Is the NNPC a sacred cow? And should the president be an umpire
in a game to which he’s a contender, or a judge in his own case?” Shehu
“Is the president and his petroleum minister telling
Nigerians that no wrong has been done in terms of stealing of public
funds? If corruption was established in any form, is anyone listed for
punishment? It is pertinent to put all these information in the public
domain for third party verification. The KPMG report funded by
taxpayer’s money is itself a public property. And until this is done,
the NNPC under Jonathan shall remain in public consciousness the
abattoir for corruption, immodesty, dishonesty and impunity.
