Buhari 2019: We will account for money seized from corrupt people

PRESIDENT Muhammadu Buhari has vowed to deliver on his campaign promises as he restated that his Administration will account for the money and properties confisticated from corrupt people.
In Uyo, Akwa Ibom State,  Friday, to flag-off the All Progressive Congress (APC) Presidential campaign in the South-South geo-political zone, Buhari said that no one who votes for him in 2019 will regret.
The president renewed his promise to end the reign of terror of the Boko Haram insurgents.
He admitted that unemployment remains a challenge which his administration would tackle.
The president assured that the administration would continue the fight against corruption when voted for a second term in 2019.
According to him, “we are arresting corrupt people and prosecuting them and we will not stop.” He noted that his administration has collected property and cash.  “We have put the money into the Single Treasury Account (TSA) and government account, which can be traced and accounted for.”
He promised that, “Nigerians will be informed from time to time how much we recovered and from who and how we are going to use it to develop the country.’’
PDP attacks APC crowd
Meanwhile, the PDP Presidential Campaign Organization (PPCO), has accused the Buhari presidency and the ruling APC of secretly drawing over N478 million from the coffers of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) to rent a crowd and offset bills in Buhari’s re-election campaign rally going on in Uyo.
It also accused Buhari of appointing serving ministers and heads of government agencies as members of his campaign council so as to continue to use them as conduit pipes for the diversion of public funds to finance his 2019 campaign.
In a statement Friday, PDP spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan added, “our party is also aware of the protests by some eminent Nigerians, including foremost businessmen, who were named as members of the APC Campaign Council without their consent.
“Furthermore, the PPCO is aware of the dissension by some APC leaders over Buhari’s unilateral listing of individuals into his campaign council as announced by his media aide, without recourse to the selection process of the APC leadership.
“The PPCO reminds President Buhari that Nigerians are still awaiting his explanation on the seething revelation of corrupt acquisition of Etisalat Nigeria and Keystone Bank PLC by his family members under the cover of his presidency; an issue that Nigerians are not willing to let go until he clears his name.”
