The All Progressives Congress (APC) has said that the corruption ability of the opposition People’s Democratic Party (PDP) is not only an urgent killer but has suffocated all Nigerians to last point.
The ruling party noted that though, the opposition in a democracy is supposed to offer constructive criticisms and proffer alternative solutions to government policies and programmes, it is the opposite of the opposition rhetoric of the PDP which has nothing but senseless noise-making in its failed attempt to distract the President Muhammadu Buhari administration.
The APC in a press Statement on Sunday signed by its Acting National Publicity Secretary, Yekini Nabena pointed out that in both content and context, PDP’s latest allegations on the President Buhari administration’s anti-corruption efforts should be seen for what they are: describing it as ‘empty, baseless and diversionary’.
The statement said: “It is truly amazing that the party of a failed government which held the country prostrate for 16 years; stole, wasted and misappropriated our abundant resources will have the audacity to make comments on the current administration that within three years is clearing the rot left after the PDP’s misrule”.
“Was it not under the PDP’s immediate-past administration that disclosures of nauseating magnitude were made”, the ruling party queried.
“I collected N350m from Dasuki for consultation: Iyorchia Ayu; I only collected $30,000 from Dasuki not N100m: Bode George; I got N4.6b from Dasuki for spiritual purposes: Bafarawa; I got N2.16b from Dasuki for publicity purposes: Dokpesi; I got another N100m from Yuguda: He did not tell me from where: Bafarawa;
I gave N100m each to Odili, Jim Nwobodo, Bode George and others: Yuguda; The President asked me to change N10b to foreign currency for PDP delegates: Dasuki; N950m was shared in my house: Shekarau; and many more shameful disclosures by PDP party members”.
Nabena said these are just a tip of the iceberg of how our commonwealth were massively looted by the shameless characters in the PDP adding; “Instead of apologizing profusely for their gang rape of the nation, the PDP seeks to present itself before Nigerians in 2019 to seek a return to their stealing.
The PDP should understand that Nigerians cannot forget in a hurry how the country was destroyed by their gang of pen robbers.
“The PDP may wish to explain to Nigerians under which administration a State Governor who was set free in many courts in Nigeria on charges of corruption and money laundering but was tried and jailed in the United Kingdom.
Is it not ironic that the PDP preaches about corruption in the oil sector when it oversaw record pillage, maladministration and disrepair of the oil sector when it held sway”.
