PDP demands full-scale investigations over fire at Treasury House, Abuja

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has called for full-scale investigation into the circumstances surrounding the mysterious fire outbreak in critical offices at the Headquarters of the Office of the Accountant-General of the Federation in Abuja on Wednesday.

The call was contained in a statement it issued and signed by its National Publicity Secretary, Mr Kola Ologbondiya on Wednesday.

According to the Party, an investigation was imperative given apprehensions in the public space regarding the time and the offices affected in the fire outbreak.

The statement reads: “Our party expresses shock that the fire incident came on the heels of our heightened calls for a forensic audit into the hazy oil subsidy regime of the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration for which trillions of naira is being claimed to have been spent.

“This is in addition to recent demands for an investigation into allegations of fraud and diversion of COVID-19 intervention funds as well as social investments program of the Buhari government since 2015.

Already, the National Assembly, riding on the gale of demands by Nigerians and championed by the PDP, has raised queries on spending in respect of social incentives program.

“Nigerians are anxious  to know those behind this wicked arson because the fire outbreak reportedly occurred on the part of the building which hosts critical offices including the Treasury Single Account (TSA), Funds, Federation Account Allocation Committee and Revenue Department among others, relevant for the demanded financial inquests”, the Party stated.

The statement went further to say: “Our party therefore calls for immediate investigation to determine the actual cause of the fire, as well as ensure that critical documents and data on government revenue and expenditure are immediately retrieved. The PDP also demands that the complex be immediately cordoned off to enable an uncompromised inquest into this ugly incident”, it concluded.
