PDP declares support for Subsidy probe

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Wednesday declared its support for the ongoing debate in the House of Representatives over the probe report into the payment of subsidy to importers of petroleum products.
The party, in a press statement signed by Olisa Metuh, its National Publicity Secretary, gave “unflinching support for every step so far taken by government to stamp out corruption.”
The party’s position followed a meeting Wednesday, of its National Working Committee (NWC) led by its national chairman, Bamanga Tukur.
“The new leadership of our great Party, PDP shall be in the fore front of the battle against corruption and in view of the principled stand and deep commitment of President Goodluck Jonathan,” Mr. Metuh stated.
“The National Working Committee welcomes the probe by the House of Representatives into the management of the petroleum subsidy. While the NWC awaits the consummation of all due processes in line with fair hearing to ensure that only the guilty suffers, the PDP will continue to encourage the National Assembly to take necessary measures that will help stamp out corruption,” the statement read.
