The Peoples Democratic Party has urged the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC), to track down Gimba Yau Kumo, son-in-law to President Muhammadu Buhari who is allegedly involved in a $65 million fraud.
The party reportedly disclosed this in a statement titled, ‘$65m fraud: Track down Buhari’s son in-law, PDP charges ICPC’, released on Friday, and signed by the PDP National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan.
According to the statement, “The party charges the ICPC not to succumb to reported pressure from the cabal in the Buhari Presidency but to track down Yau Kumo, the former Managing Director of the FMBN,who had already been declared wanted, and bring him to book alongside his accomplices.”
It added that, “The PDP holds as wicked, afflicting and provocative that while millions of hardworking Nigerians cannot afford their daily meals and other basic necessities of life due to the misrule and corruption of the All Progressives Congress and its administration, they are daily assailed by revelations of unbridled treasury looting under President Buhari’s watch.”
The statement concluded that, “The PDP urges the Buhari Presidency to allow for an open investigation of Mr. President’s son in-law as well as those fingered in the fraud in the NPA(Nigerian Ports Authority) and the NDDC (Niger Delta Development Commission).”
