Akpabio PDP accuses APC of masterminding Senator’s EFCC summon

This clearly explains why the so-called fight against corruption has been selective and focused against PDP members, despite counsels by stakeholders that it should be holistic and in accordance with the due process of the law.

The National Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Olisa Metuh has accused the All Progressives Congress (APC), of using state powers to intimidate Senator Godswill Akpabio.

According to Sun Newspapers, Metuh said “We have verifiable reports from our key members that agents of the APC have been approaching them to join the APC with threats to use the EFCC to victimise them should they refuse. The APC and its agents have been boasting that they have the powers to deal with or spare any person, depending on the party such a person belongs to.”

Adding that “This clearly explains why the so-called fight against corruption has been selective and focused against PDP members, despite counsels by stakeholders that it should be holistic and in accordance with the due process of the law.”

He also said “The best example of the curious nature of the war against corruption is the fact that former PDP governors and ministers are being hounded and arrested over apparently orchestrated petitions, while their APC counterparts, who have more damaging petitions are being nominated for ministerial positions. Even other APC former governors who have ongoing corruption cases in court are being rewarded with APC tickets for the forthcoming governorship elections in Kogi and Bayelsa.”

This is coming on heels of  the arrest and interrogation of Senator Godswill Akpabio, by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
