Buhari asks FG to release audit report on missing $20bn

Published by Daily Trust on Tue, 30 Dec 2014

Presidential candidate of the All Progressive Congress (APC) Muhammadu Buhari has demanded the release of the audit report of the $20billion missing funds in the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC). 'In the spirit of the War Against Corruption, we demand the release of the Audit Report of the Missing 20 Billion Dollars,' Buhari said in a statement.The statement signed by the Director of Communications for the Buhari Campaign Organisation (BCO), Mr Dele Alake on Sunday said 'our vision is a new Nigeria in which corruption and abuse of office shall be sanctioned according to existing laws with the strengthening of the institutions of state; a Nigeria where the public and private sectors will collaborate to create zero tolerance for sharp practices in the running of government business.'The former head of state explained that 'there is a clear linkage between the billions of naira lost to corruption and the poor living conditions of our people: it is the resources meant for the development of our people that are diverted to service the greed of a few.''It is the fear of the unknown in a country where both family and government social welfare have collapsed that fuels the avarice of those in offices to steal for generations unborn,' he added."Let us reiterate that we have already declared war against corruption, resolved to achieve food security, provide accelerated power supply, integrate the country's transport network, promote free education and provide affordable health care service,' the statement said.The presidential flag bearer said 'what we bring to the table is not just these ideas. What we offer Nigerians is that we shall, day and night, 24 hours per day, seven days a week, stake our integrity as men of discipline and transparency to make life better for the average Nigerian by executing these policies in the shortest possible time.'Unlike his opponents, Buhari said that 'what we bring to the table is an unblemished record of patriotism to our country and an enviable standard of hard work and fulfillment of pledges that we have not seen in the handling of our national affairs in the last few years.'"Clearly unable to oppose us with an equally clean and unassailable ticket, we can understand why our opponents are running from pillar to post digging graves in search of rumours in the impossible hope of misinforming unsuspecting voters and spinning a web of blackmail and deceit,' he said.He said: "It is indeed true that, by sheer force of personal examples, I and my running mate, Professor Yemi Osinbajo have demonstrated beyond reasonable doubt that it is possible to live above the greed that dominates the system."I believe our spiritual anchors as men who fear The Almighty and are resolved to live our lives according to His admonitions have played very critical roles in developing our capacity to lead. As Christians go and return from churches, as Muslims and men of other faiths observe their spiritual obligations, we believe our individual commitments to serve our Creator will inspire us to shun corruption.'"We say this fully conscious of the need to strengthen these spiritual values by creating a system that cares for the poor and the downtrodden; a system that gives jobs to the unemployed; provides electricity so that the artisans and the middle class can be productive and expands infrastructures to enable the corporate sector reduce cost of operations.He said that he's not deterred by the blackmail of his detractors, saying: "In this electoral contest of vision and moral stature, only the guilty needs to be afraid. Luckily, our lives are like the open book. We challenge our opponents to stake their desire to lead "Nigeria again on what they have achieved with the billions of resources they received. This is not the time for distractions and red herrings. Nigerians are the ultimate judge of stewardship.
