Anyone Linked To Drugs Shouldn’t Come Near Presidential Villa – PDP


(AFRICAN EXAMINER) – The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential campaign council has stated that anyone “linked to a drug cartel” should not be become the president of Nigeria.

This was disclosed in a statement made by Kola Ologbondiyan, spokesperson of the campaign council, saying that the alleged involvement of the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, in a “crime bordering on drugs” in which some monies were forfeited poses a moral threat about his presidential bid.

It could be recalled that during the week, online media was flooded with copies of a settlement order issued by a US court domiciled in the northern district of Illinois concerning forfeiture of funds in some bank accounts linked to the name “Bola Tinubu”.

Reacting, Ologbondiyan tasked the former Lagos State governor to take responsibility for the consequences of the allegations against him.

“Our campaign maintains that Nigeria as a nation cannot afford to allow an individual with the remotest link to a drug cartel near the presidential villa,” Ologbondiyan said.

“We insist that the mention of Asiwaju Tinubu’s name in a crime bordering on drugs and consequent upon which some monies were forfeited, raises a moral question and issues of serious security threat.



“How, for instance, will our nation cope with a president who will be consistently harassed, intimidated and blackmailed by a drug cartel?

“It is also disturbing that Asiwaju Tinubu’s handlers are running around an ocean of excuses from where they have been fetching what they believe will convince Nigerians.

“We ask: what business was Asiwaju Tinubu running that such a whopping sum of $460,000 would be deducted as tax from his account?

“It is easily deductible that the $460,000 removed from the account represented the illicit fund that accrued from the drug. That accounts for the reason why no other sum was removed from the account contrary to the argument from Tinubu’s minders that the amount represented a tax.

“If indeed, like Asiwaju Tinubu’s handlers have said, Tinubu “took responsibility” for drugs money, it goes with saying that he must also take responsibility for the consequences of that action.”
