Disprove allegations of recovered loot, ruling party replies PDP

The APC challenged the PDP to first disprove allegations of billions of Naira and other foreign currencies recovered from members of the PDP by the EFCC.

In a report by Punch, the APC challenged the PDP to first disprove allegations of billions of Naira and other foreign currencies recovered from members of the PDP by the EFCC.

In a telephone interview, the National Publicity Secretary of the APC, Mallam Bolaji Abdullahi, said: “Instead of saying our party has destroyed EFCC’s independence, they should contradict the billions of naira, dollars and pounds recovered from its members who held positions of authority in the past. It is when they provide evidence that this is not true that we can talk."

Continuing, Abdullahi said: “If they want to lay any claim to moral superiority, they should refute evidence adduced by the EFCC about the recovery so far made, then, we can talk.

“Let them challenge the verdict of a competent court of our land which recently ordered the permanent forfeiture of property and billions of naira in cash belonging to Diezani Alison- Madueke (former minister of petroleum resources).

“If they can successfully challenge all these, then, they can speak. As for them returning to power, Nigerians are now wiser.”

On Thursday, August 31, 2017, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) had accused the ruling All Progressives' Congress (APC) of destroying the opposition party's great work with anti-corruption by interfering with the country's anti-graft agencies.
