Here is copy of the party’s tweets
The main opposition party also claimed that the vice president had “failed to provide a cogent response to the report of the House of Representatives on the N33 billion NEMA fraud in addition to allegations that the N5.8 billion was withdrawn from the national coffers, while he was Acting President, without legislative consent and expended without recourse to extant due process, procurement and contract rules.”
Speaking further the party charged the presidency to immediately prosecute the sacked Director-General of the agency, Mustapha Yunusa Maihaja, who was also ‘indicted’ by the lower legislative chamber over alleged embezzlement of N33 billion in the organization.
The PDP said it stands with Nigerians in rejecting “this unpardonable pat in the wrist of allowing Engineer Maihaja to leave office without investigation and prosecution to recover the allegedly embezzled fund.”
