The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has demanded an immediate review of the 375 kilometre Abuja-Kaduna-Zaria-Kano road reconstruction contract, following

the unearthing of corrupt padding in the N797.23 billion recently approved by the Federal Executive Council .In a statement issued by Kola Ologbondiyan, the PDP National Publicity Secretary, the party asked for an open probe into the criminal padding of the contract from the original N155 billion to an outrageous and indefensible N797 billion, with a whooping N642 billion allegedly earmarked to be shared among corrupt officials.

“While our party restates our total support for the reconstruction of this very important road, the PDP insists that it will be against the interest of the nation to allow criminal elements in the Buhari administration to hide under the project to steal a staggering N642 billion which ought to be channelled to other projects that would benefit the people.”

“The PDP charges President Buhari to heed to the demands by Nigerians and immediately effect the review in the interest of the nation before any releases are made.
