The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has urged the National Assembly to investigate President Bola Tinubu’s administration following the leak of a memo regarding a one billion Naira allocation.

PDP Calls for National Assembly Probe of Tinubu Presidency Over Leaked N1bn Memo 1

A memo leak revealed Tinubu’s approval of N500 million as the first part of a N1 billion allocation for inaugurating a 37-man Tripartite Committee on the New National Minimum Wage

The memo originated from Senator George Akume, the Secretary to the Government of the Federation

However, the PDP criticized the approval of such a large amount for what it considers a routine government activity like committee inauguration as the “height of profligacy, impudence and financial recklessness which further validates it’s position that the Tinubu-led government is a cesspit of corruption where officials engage in brazen and reckless treasury-looting.”

The demand was made by the opposition party in a statement signed by its spokesperson, Debo Ologunagba, on Friday.

The statement reads: “It is highly provocative and unpardonable that at the time the nation is suffering acute food shortage; when millions of Nigerians are starving due largely to inadequate investment in food production, insecurity and harsh economic policies of the government; a time when workers are still being owed their January 2024 salary and other legitimate entitlements, President Tinubu is allegedly spending NI billion to inaugurate a committee.

“It is even more revealing that the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, allegedly requested for an audacious sum of N1.8 billion for the event which was later scaled down to N1 billion, out of which President Tinubu reportedly directed the SGF to “start with N500 million first”.

“This further shows that the APC administration is insensitive and has no regard for the plight of Nigerians, whom President Tinubu, during his 2024 budget presentation at the National Assembly described as “ordinary people out there”.

“Nigerians can now also see how our national treasury and funds meant for their wellbeing are being looted with reckless abandon by officials of the Tinubu-led APC administration

“This is apparently a tip of the iceberg of how looters in the APC administration are cashing out with public funds under the cover of the Presidency as witnessed in the reported plundering of over N44 billion in the Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs and Poverty Alleviation.

“The PDP calls out the Tinubu Presidency to speak out, come clean and address the nation on this very weighty allegation especially at this time when Nigerians are undergoing excruciating economic hardship

“Our Party demands that the National Assembly, pursuant to its powers under Section 88 of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, 1999 (as amended) immediately commence investigation into this matter which is already agitating the minds of Nigerians across the country.”
