REVEALED: Buhari Shields Oshiomhole From Prosecution Over Corruption Allegations
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has revealed that President Muhammadu Buhari is shielding the former governor of Edo State, Mr. Adams Oshiomhole from investigation and prosecution.
PDP was stunned to learn that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) had to be dragged to court by an Edo state based anti-corruption crusader, (Dr) Osadolor Ochei.
Dr. Ochei is “seeking the court to compel EFCC to act on petitions against the former governor and commence his investigation and prosecution.”
The party condemned the official shielding of Oshiomhole, whom President Buhari had anointed as his preferred National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
This, according to the party, is in spite of the public knowledge of the corruption allegations against Oshiomhole.
Expressing disappointment, it therefore, invited Nigerians to “join the call for the investigation and prosecution of the erstwhile governor over the weighty allegations against him.”
It also challenged President Buhari to “prove the sincerity of his fight against corruption by directing the investigation and arraignment of the former Edo State Governor over allegations of corruption.”
