Buhari’s anti-corruption war “hugely successful” — APC

Buhari in France

The All Progressives Congress (APC) says it is aware of the “intensified orchestrated attacks by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and their agents on the hugely successful war against corruption being waged by the President Muhammadu Buhari administration”.

According to the APC National Secretary, Mala Buni, the party is also “aware of the plot by the PDP and their agents to stampede and blackmail anti-corruption agencies over ongoing corruption cases being investigated”.

In three press statements issued on Friday, the Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, and Ekiti state governor, Ayodele Fayose, alleged plans by the APC and President Buhari’s administration to silence the opposition through a selective anti-corruption fight.

Also, the acting National Chairman of the PDP, Uche Secondus on Friday accused the APC of attempting to turn the country into a one-party state.

“The APC urges anti-corruption agencies not to be distracted by these syndicated and coordinated attacks and continue to employ all legal and legitimate avenues to bring to book all looters of our common wealth,” Mr. Buni said.

“It is clear that the PDP is out of sync and out of step with the generality of Nigerians on the clamour to bring to book all looters of public funds. The days of impunity are over. The PDP and treasury thieves must pay for the recklessness and shocking mis-management of public funds perpetuated under the defunct 16-year PDP rule. It is however reassuring that in spite of desperate and shameless attempts by the PDP and it’s agents to discredit President Buhari’s anti-corruption efforts, the war against corruption is being won.

“The PDP camp in baseless allegations accuses the president of a selective anti-corruption fight while members of the APC ‘with serious corruption allegations go about their businesses’. The PDP camp in continuation of its laughable conspiracy theories also speaks of ‘a calculated attempt to decimate and silence the opposition’ through the anti-corruption fight and an attempt to turn the country to a one-party state.

“The position of the APC has not changed. For the umpteenth time, if the PDP has any proof of corruption against any APC member as alleged, we advise that they approach any of the anti-graft agencies constitutionally mandated to handle such cases. The ongoing war against corruption is not selective. Anybody guilty of corrupt practices must face the law. The political will and sincerity of purpose of the present administration to tackle corruption from the roots to the upper echelons no matter whose ox is gored is unwavering.

“We advise individuals being investigated on corruption charges to cooperate with investigators instead of declaring innocence on newspaper pages and other media outlets.

“Again we state that the PDP and their agents do not have the luxury of dictating how the present administration and anti-corruption agencies carries out its legitimate duty of catching looters of public funds, as long as it conforms with the rule of law.

“On the allegation by the acting PDP National Chairman, Uche Secondus that the APC is attempting to foist a one-party system on the country, such idle chat does not deserve a response.”

    DEAR SIR,

    I will not be surprised if Barack Obama and David Cameron invite themselves to Nigeria next month
    to learn at the feet of President Muhammadu Buhari on the best model to fight corruption ever seen.

    The basis for any relationship in this world is RESPECT; love of is a good thing, but it is not absolutely necessary; be it a relationship between a man and a woman, a party in power, and opposition, there MUST be respect, not love.

    Until PDP score some attacks, some deep strikes at the heart of APC, the aforementioned respect will continue to be lacking. You have to return fire for fire, PDP. You have to, not only look DANGEROUS, you actually have to be dangerous and unpredictable; you have to have a means of retaliation and enforcement. STOP talking. You look effeminate.

    What happened to you? You were just in power a few months ago. It’s embarrassing. All your people are picked up daily, and put in gulags, illegally. And stop saying you support war on corruption, because that is not what’s happening. You just witnessed Buhari massacre 1000 of our fellow countrymen and women; you see him disobey court orders. Swing into action, or keep quiet. Your foppish aura will lead many of you to early graves. Only cowards die more than once. Your spokesman has been kidnapped, Oh PDP! Bell the cat.

      Thank God that as many as there are lunatics in PDP, nobody in that party is as mentally damaged as you. 🙂

    The APC should not go counting chickens. No one has been to trial and stolen money is not accounted for.

  • Cleartruth

    Apc cannot deny the selective anti corruption war because we are witnessing it at the moment. It’s not something somebody is telling us that happened in the past. In this case we are live witnesses of how dictator buhari and his apc gang are witch hunting pdp and trying to turn nigeria to one party state like north Korea. Nigerians must rise up against this dictatorship. If you want to fight corruption, it must be across board both pdp and apc.

  • Otile

    This is mere witch-hunting. How many criminals have Islamic APC convicted in any court of law. Blackmail does not count as success.

    • share Idea

      That tells you how some people measure success. APC measure of success is how much traffic their media propaganda generates on internet or media. Not even a single person have been jailed under the administration and they are beating their chest for achieving what no government have done.

    • Buhari4Ever

      There is nothing bad hunting witches and wizards. Only a witch or wizard will knowingly covet money belonging to the masses

  • “Buhari’s anti-corruption war “hugely successful” — APC”
    These APC are fraudsters.
