Festus Keyamo, the Director of Strategic Communications, President Muhammadu Buhari Campaign Organisation (PMBCO) has lambasted the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, over corruption allegations levelled against the nation’s leader.
Keyamo, in a statement on Wednesday, advised the PDP to stop making wild, unsubstantiated allegations of corruption without a modicum of proof.
“We have no time to respond to any allegation by the PDP without the backing of some kind of document or proof.
“When we see some scintilla of proof, we shall respond appropriately”, the spokesman said.
“And that is how we have treated the recent allegation of acquisition of shares in Etisalat and Keystone Bank by some supposed ‘family members’ of the President.
“No name was mentioned and no document was shown,’’ he said.
Earlier, Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, said if the PDP wants to make family the issue in the coming elections, the All Progressives Congress (APC) would gladly accept the challenge.
Reacting to various comments by several organs of the opposition party on remarks made by the President on views publicly expressed by his wife, Mrs. Aisha Muhammadu Buhari in an interview, Shehu said questions raised concerning the President by the PDP in regard to his wife only amounted to an own goal.
