The party made the call in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Mr Debo Ologunagba in Abuja on Tuesday.

Ologunagba said that the call was important in order to protect the country’s national treasury against its use for political expenses in the 2023 general elections.

“The PDP calls on the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), the Accountant General of the Federation (AGF) as well as the Auditor General of the Federation to immediately commence investigation and monitor the movement of funds in MDA so as to protect our national treasury as we approach the 2023 general elections.

“The National Assembly, pursuant to its constitutional duty to expose and prevent corruption should in the interest of Nigerians commence a public investigation into these happenings,” he said.
