The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has demanded a full-scale investigation into the circumstances surrounding Wednesday’s fire outbreak at the Abuja headquarters of the Office of the Accountant-General of the Federation.

 

In a statement on Wednesday by the spokesman for the PDP, Kola Ologbondiyan, the party said an investigation was imperative given apprehensions in the public space regarding the time and the offices involved in the fire outbreak.

He said the party expresses shock that the fire incident came on the heels of 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.

He said 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.

The party further stated that investigation was necessary to determine the actual cause of the fire, as well as to ensure that critical documents and data on government revenue and expenditure are immediately retrieved.

 

 

The PDP also demanded immediate cordoning off of the building, to enable an uncompromised inquest into the incident.

The AGF office was gutted by a fire outbreak that lasted a while on Wednesday.

Although the fire was later extinguished by the federal fire service, there has not been any official  report on the cause of the fire.
