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 Presidency has reacted to allegations of intimidation made by the National Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Olisa Metuh.
Metuh in a statement 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 pow¬ers to deal with or spare any person, depending on the party such a person belongs to.”
Speaking on the incident, Mr. Femi Adesina, the Media Adviser to President Buhari, in a telephone interview with Sun Newspapers, said “PDP deserves pity for spewing lies.”
He also said “The opposition seems to have run out of ideas so soon. Daily, we hear the same jaded and hackeyed allegations from them. I think they really are to be pitied. They need help. A broken record that repeats itself ceaselessly is of no use than to be thrown away.”
This is coming on heels of the arrest and interrogation of Senator Godswill Akpabio, by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
