The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has said the leaked memo from the office of the Head of Service, Winifred Oyo-Ita, has exposed President Muhammadu Buhari fake anti-corruption war.
Oyo-Ita had stated in her memo to the President’s Chief of Staff, Abba Kyari, that she warned Buhari against reinstating the ex-pension boss Abdulrasheed Maina.
Speaking to newsmen on Tuesday, the party spokesperson, Prince Dayo Adeyeye, stressed that Buhari should be held responsible for the rot in the civil service.
Adeyeye wondered why the President asked for details of how Maina was brought back into the service when he was in the know.
He urged the National Assembly to launch an investigation into the matter in order to unravel the roles played by groups and individuals in the Maina saga.
Adeyeye said: ”We have always said it that the President has not come clean before Nigerians on the Maina saga. The memo by the Head of Service has exposed him (Buhari.). It has shown that he was part of those who initiated Maina’s recall.
”His anti-corruption mantra is a grand deception. The President is not a man we can trust. Why did he set up a committee or asked the HoS to furnish the office of the Chief of Staff with details of how Maina returned to his office?
”We don’t know the relationship he (President Buhari) has with Maina. Did he collect part of the loot for financing his presidential campaign in 2015 and therefore, he’s desirous to pay him back?”
