The All Progressives Congress (APC) has said that President Goodluck Jonathan’s regime is the most corrupt in history.

The opposition party stated further that Jonathan’s administration is also the most reckless the nation has ever seen.

The comments were made by the Director of Media and Publicity of the APC Presidential Campaign Organisation, Garba Shehu at a press conference on Thursday.

“We can safely say that President Jonathan has muzzled the EFCC. He has turned one of our country’s most respected and revered institutions into a toothless bulldog without even as much as a bark,” Shehu said.

“It is startling to see the dexterity with which the President sacked the former chairman of the SURE-P scheme owing to his pronouncement on the desirability of change. Meanwhile, ministers and other senior members of his government who have heavy allegations of corruption hanging on their necks still comfortably retain their positions,” he added.

“Not only has he bound the EFCC from doing its job, Mr. Jonathan has also reversed some previous achievements of the commission by granting state pardon to erstwhile government officials whom it had uncovered as guilty of corruption,” Garba said further.

The APC spokesperson also criticized Jonathan’s administration for dividing Nigerians along ethno-religious lines.
