The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) spokesperson, Chief Olisa Metuh has called for a national truth commission, for Nigerians to deliberate on corruption and corrupt practices.

Metuh said the commission will also expose to Nigerians, the source of wealth of most public office holders in Nigeria.

He said this while calling on President Buhari to probe the security votes of the past Heads of State and Presidents since 1984.

Metuh said “In the light of the way and manner of this government’s selective prosecution of the war against corruption, the PDP challenges the government to set up a National Truth Commission wherein politicians and other Nigerians publicly discuss the true meaning of corrupt practice in our land. This commission would also provide a platform for a proper public inquisition into the mind-boggling wealth of some Nigerians in public office.”

“Nigerians are quite eager to learn the business and investment tricks of past and present public officers in the APC fold, especially former governors, former ministers as well as their national leader, who suddenly acquired multi-billions investments and are now reputed to be the richest politicians in the country,” he said.

The PDP spokesman also called on President Buhari to probe the sources of the campaign funds of both the PDP and the All Progressives Congress (APC).

“If indeed the government is interested in ending sleazes associated with campaign funds, the National Truth Commission will present an avenue for Nigerians to openly debate the issues therein with facts and figures,” Metuh said.

The Peoples Democratic Party has consistently said that the All Peoples Congress led government is using the war against corruption to settle political scores and intimidate its members.
