‘Investigate APC campaign funds too,’ PDP tells President

The PDP also accused the Buhari administration of witch-hunting its members in the guise of fighting a war against corruption.

President Muhammadu Buhari

The comments were contained in a six-point resolution reached by the PDP’s National Executive Committee (NEC) on Tuesday, May 17, 2016.

The resolutions were as follows:

That the National Convention of the Peoples Democratic Party will hold in Port-Harcourt, Rivers State at the Shark Stadium on Saturday, the 21st of May 2016 as earlier scheduled.

That in-line with the Report of the Ekweremadu Committee, the forthcoming National Convention will formerly ratify the zoning of the PDP Presidential Ticket for the 2019 Presidential Election to the North and the zoning of the National Chairmanship position to the South of the country, respectfully.

NEC also resolved that due to the issues arising from the just concluded congresses at the wards, local governments and states, especially in Sokoto, Lagos, Osun and Adamawa states, that a Special. Committee shall be constituted after the National Convention to look into the matter accordingly.

NEC observed and condemned in strong terms the arbitrary arrest and detention of PDP members on account of Party campaign funds by the Government of President Muhammadu Buhari and urged Nigerians and the International Community to request the APC Administration to investigate the campaign funds of its Party, the All Progressive Congress (APC) as some accusations of misuse of public funds are also levelled against some APC governors and stakeholders.

NEC further decried the selective probe of PDP members by the anti-graft agency under the administration of the APC as a case of witch-hunt and unnecessary oppression aimed at silencing members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

NEC therefore demands the immediate release of all members of the PDP in the custody of the anti-graft agency, the EFCC, or charge them to Court without further delay.
