The APC also said that it had been aware of the situation but didn’t expect the magnitude of corruption it had discovered.

The All Progressives Congress (APC) has said that the amount of corruption which took place under the Goodluck Jonathan administration is ‘shocking’.

This was disclosed on Thursday, July 23, 2015, by APC National Publicity Secretary, Lai Mohammed during an interview with Punch.

“We are not just shocked but taken aback by what we have found. We have always known that there was monumental corruption under the previous regime but we did not know it was this huge.”

“Anybody who calls the questions we are asking a witch-hunt is a person who condones corruption, and again, when we were raising the alarm over this level of corruption they were engaged in, they said we were crying wolf where there was none.

“They said it never happened. They even went as far as manufacturing figures to cover up. We must ask questions so that whoever is coming into government will know that it cannot be business as usual and that he/she must be prepared to answer questions after they leave office.”

Meanwhile the PDP has urged President Buhari to conduct a general corruption probe and not just go after the members of the opposition party.
