BREAKING: Leaked N1.8bn memo shows Tinubu’s Presidency is Cesspool of Corruption

Following the leaked memo which showed the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF) George Akume requesting for approval of the President for the committee on Minimum Wage, the Peoples Democratic Party has described the Bola Tinubu as a cesspool of corruption.

TheNewsGuru.com earlier reported that a leaked memo shows Akume requesting for approval of 1.8 billion for the committee on Minimum Wage.

In the memo, the President had advised the SGF to start the process with a sum of N500m.

Condemning the request, the PDP said the memo is an indication of the type of looting that is occurring under the President.

Demanding an investigation of the Presidency, the PDP said it is callous of the government to plan such expenses under the current economic circumstances.

“The PDP describes the said approval of the huge amount for a routine government activity like committee inauguration as the height of profligacy, imprudence and financial recklessness which further validates PDP’s position that the Tinubu-led government is a cesspit of corruption where officials engage in brazen and reckless treasury-looting,” the statement signed National Publicity Secretary Debo Ologunagba said

The controversial memo
Describing it as “highly provocative” the party said it 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 party said the Tinubu Presidency must 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.”
