Buhari: Looted funds enable opposition PDP with mischief power

The opposition pose a formidable threat to the government of All Progressives Party (APC) because of the enormous looted resource in their possession, President Muhammadu Buhari has alleged.

The opposition pose a formidable threat to the government of All Progressives Party (APC) because of the enormous looted resource in their possession, President Muhammadu Buhari has alerted.

President Buhari said on Friday that opposition was in possession of much resource that could sponsor mischief against his administration.

He made the allegation when he received members of Buhari Media Organisation (BMO) at the Presidential Villa.

He claimed that the opposition looted so much money before he assumed office, that his administration may not be able to recover all and might use same against his government.

“The opposition, now, are sitting on incredible resources which I am afraid we cannot get at it all,” President Buhari told the group.

“For that reason, they are in a position to sponsor mischief from different angles which in spite of the incumbency of the government, we cannot absolutely stop.”

President Buhari, however, urged members of the organisation to continue to support his administration in recovering the looted resources as much as they can.

He further praised the support group for its steadfastness, moral uprightness and sacrifice to the nation.

The group, formerly known as Buhari Media Support Group, was led to the Villa by its National Coordinator, Austin Briamoh.

It was later converted to Buhari Media Support Group (BMSG) after the elections and was renamed Buhari Media Organisation earlier this year.

President Buhari met with the group in company with the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Mr Boss Mustapha.

Others are Chief of Staff to the President, Mr Abba Kyari, as well as President Buhari’s Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr Garba Shehu, and his Personal Assistant on Social Media, Ms Lauretta Onochia. (NAN)
