THE Peoples has challenged the President Muhammadu Buhari-led All Progressives Congress regime come clean on allegations of its complicity in financing terrorism by naming those found complicit.

It also noted that the refusal expose the identities of sponsors of terrorism in Nigeria vindicates the PDP’s position that the APC-led regime has been providing official cover for terrorists and bandits pillaging the nation.

This was contained in a statement titled, ‘Expose Terrorism Sponsors If You Are Not Complicit, PDP Challenges APC, Buhari Presidency,’ signed by the National Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Kola Ologbondiyan, in Abuja.

He said, “The PDP asserts that the refusal by the Buhari Presidency expose the sponsors of terrorism in Nigeria vindicates its position that the APC government has been providing official cover for terrorists and bandits pillaging the nation.

“The PDP position is predicated on the declaration of the Buhari Presidency that it was not interested in making public the names of six Nigerians reportedly sent the Federal Government by the United Arab Emirates as sponsors of terrorism in our country.

“The PDP holds that the decision of the APC-led government cover the of sponsors of mindless mass killings, maiming, raping, kidnapping of our compatriots as well as the endless violent marauding of our communities under the APC watch, validates our stand that such individuals have connections with the APC.”

Ologbondiyan said the decision of the Buhari Presidency shield the identities of such persons raised serious national anxieties of high-level complicity in the administration and further explains the reported compromising of the security in the escalated killings and acts of terrorism in the country in the last six years under the APC.

The PDP spokesman also recalled “how the APC vehemently defended and still harbours the Minister of Communication and Digital Economy, Isa Pantami, a self-confessed terrorism apologist, despite national outcry and demand for his sacking.”

Ologbondiyan challenged the regime publish the names passed onto it by the government of the UAE if only to prove that it has nothing to hide with respect to the issue.
