APC backs Buhari, Amaechi; tells Atiku, PDP to account for $460m CCTV, $2bn China loan

APC backs Buhari, Amaechi; tells Atiku, PDP to account for $460m CCTV, $2bn China loan

The All Progressives Congress (APC) has said the statement issued by the media office of former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, on the sovereign immunity clause embedded in Nigeria’s loan agreements with China was unresearched, unintelligent and pedestrian.

Its reaction was contained in a statement on Monday by the spokesman, Yekini Nabena.

He noted that Minister for Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, already explained the guarantee/clause in the loan deals is standard irrespective of the country granting the loan.

“Perhaps, Atiku and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) could redirect their energies to explaining to Nigerians the status of the failed $460 million Abuja Closed-Circuit Television (CCTV) awarded in August 2010 by the immediate-past PDP administration.

“Also, they should explain the over $2billion China loan the PDP administration took between 2010 and 2013 alone; $16billion spent on power with no electricity; fuel subsidy rackets; counter-insurgency funds that were diverted and shared to political cronies among other shocking heists.”

APC recalled that the CCTV installation project was initiated by late President Umaru Yar’Adua and awarded in August 2010 by former President, Goodluck Jonathan’s administration to help security agencies in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) check the growing insecurity.

It said since the agreement was signed, Nigeria has been servicing this loan to China while Nigerians are yet to attest to the visibility of CCTV project and unable to explain the status of the video surveillance project.

“The matter is subject to a legislative probe. In all of these we are starkly reminded that the PDP remains a corrupted and damaged product. Nigerians must continue to reject the party at all levels of government.

“In the area of fiscal discipline, prudence, curbing leakages, are we currently getting it right? An emphatic yes! Every kobo expended on infrastructure counts. Verifiable evidence abound in the fast expanding national railway projects, airport remodelling among other critical infrastructure projects being undertaken by the President Muhammadu Buhari government.”

APC added that the days of phoney contracts as institutionalised by successive PDP administrations are fast fading.
