The Peoples Democratic Party has criticised the Presidency over the alleged hacking of President Muhammadu Buhari’s personal data in the run-up to the 2015 general election.
The party said President Buhari’s handlers decided to concoct the fabrications just to divert public attention from the alleged overwhelming national and international rejection of their administration, particularly the Bill Gates’ verdict on the economy.
PDP National Publicity Secretary, Mr. Kola Ologbondiyan, said in a statement on Saturday, that the Presidency, in its haste to dish out lies, failed to realise that contrary to its claims, the report they relied upon did not even mention the PDP or any of its officials and that it even exonerated former President Goodluck Jonathan as having no knowledge of the alleged scam.
He said, “We perused the documents and publications in The Guardian of UK relied upon by President Buhari’s Senior Special Assistant, Mallam Shehu Garba, only to discover that none of them alluded to any involvement of the PDP or any of our officials or members, directly or indirectly of being in any way a part of the said saga.”
