The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Friday accused the Minister of Transportation and the Director-General of the Buhari Campaign Organisation, Rotimi Amaechi of using state funds to run President Muhammadu Buhari’s second term campaign.
The party also the president to demonstrate his much-talked about integrity by demanding the immediate resignation of the minister.
In a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, alleged that the minister, as the Director-General of the Buhari Campaign Organisation is using government fund to campaign for the President.
The PDP made the call barely 24 hours before the commencement of campaigns ahead of the elections.
It claimed that Amaechi’s action demonstrated the height of corruption.
“The party says Amaechi, as Minister of Transportation and Director-General of the Buhari Campaign Organisation is using government funds to campaign for Buhari.
“The PDP notes that this action of Amaechi demonstrates the height of corruption both in Buhari administration and the person of his campaign DG,” the statement read.
The party further wondered how Amaechi would compare Buhari to the PDP candidate, Atiku Abubakar, who it claimed had been generally accepted as the next President of Nigeria.
It alleged that Amaechi had lost touch with Nigerians.
The PDP advised Amaechi to prepare to return to Rivers State instead of trying to promote what it called a failed candidate.
