A lot of accusations have been raised by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) about President Buhari's fight against corruption.

Recently, following the release of Jafaru Isa, a political associate of Buhari by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), the PDP raised an alarm, saying Mr. President was using the war against corruption to settle political scores.

The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC),  John Odigie-Oyegun after a meeting with Buhari in the Presidential Villa, has issued a statement denying the accusations, saying Nigeria must be sanitised.

He said “The APC was not in office at the national level in the last 16 years. So, the issue of whether somebody is PDP or not PDP does not arise. We have a nation to cleanse. The President has committed himself to that and we should support the cleansing whatever way it comes. We are not being apologetic about that at all.

“It is not a witch-hunt. It just happened that the dramatis personae of the period all happened to be on one side of the political divide. We have absolutely no intention to pressurise our nation into a one-party state. It is not in our interest to do so because we need a vibrant opposition."

Oyegun also said the party will not apologise to anybody, adding that the fight against corruption is in line with the change the APC promised Nigerians.

He also said the President is not planning to run a one party state.
