The Peoples Democratic Party PDP has called for an investigation into the outbreak of fire at the Office of the Accountant-General of the Federation.

In a statement via its verified twitter handle on Wednesday, titled ‘PDP Demands A Full-scale Investigation into Treasury House Fire,’ the party demanded a full-scale investigation into the circumstances surrounding the mysterious fire outbreak at critical offices of the AGF headquarters.

The PDP said the investigation is imperative, given 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.

The statement reads: “The @OfficialPDPNig has demanded a 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 party says an investigation is imperative given apprehensions in the public space regarding the time and the offices involved in the fire outbreak.

“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 @MBuhari-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 @MBuhari government since 2015.

“Already, the @nassnigeria, riding on the gale of demands by Nigerians and championed by the @OfficialPDPNig, 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.

“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 @OfficialPDPNig also demands that the complex be immediately cordoned off to enable an uncompromised inquest into this ugly incident.”
