PDP protests against selective probe by APC lead administration.

All Progressives Congress has urged
anti-corruption agencies not to be distracted by the attacks of the
opposition Peoples Democratic Party; against the anti-graft war of the
President Muhammadu Buhari administration.

National Secretary of the APC, Mai Mala Buni, said this in a statement in Abuja, on Saturday.
Buni was reacting to allegations by
opposition leaders that the anti-graft war embarked upon by the APC-led
Buhari administration, was a ploy to obliterate the opposition.
He said the APC was aware of the plot by
the PDP and their agents to stampede and blackmail anti-corruption
agencies over ongoing corruption cases being investigated.

The party noted that in three
orchestrated press statements issued on Friday, the Deputy Senate
President, Ike Ekweremadu and Ekiti state governor, Ayodele Fayose among
others, alleged plans by the APC and President Buhari’s administration
to silence the opposition through a selective anti-corruption fight.
Also, the acting National Chairman of the PDP, Uche Secondus on Friday accused the APC of attempting to turn the country into a one party state.

In response, Buni said, “The APC urges anti-corruption agencies not to be distracted by these syndicated and coordinated attacks and continue to employ all legal and legitimate avenues to bring to book all looters of our common wealth.

“It is clear that the PDP is out of sync and out of step with the generality of Nigerians on the clamour to bring to book all looters of public funds. The days of impunity are over.

According to the statement, the position of the APC has not changed. It said for the umpteenth time, if the PDP has any proof of corruption against any APC member as alleged, the APC advises that they approach any of the anti-graft agencies constitutionally mandated to handle such cases.

The APC insisted that the ongoing war against corruption was not selective adding that anybody guilty of corrupt practices must face the law.

He added, “Again we state that the PDP and their agents do not have the luxury of dictating how the present administration and anti-corruption agencies carries out its legitimate duty of catching looters of public funds, as long as it conforms with the rule of law.”

On the allegation by the acting PDP National Chairman, Uche Secondus that the APC is attempting to foist a one-party system on the state, the APC scribe said “such idle chat does not deserve a response.”
