The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has accused the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) of providing covering for corrupt government officials. ayokinews.com reports
The PDP made this known in reaction to a statement made by the Nigerian Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, who publicly stated that those stealing under President Muhammadu Buhari are doing so ‘quietly’.
The spokesman of the PDP, Kola Ologbondiyan, in a statement issued on Monday, noted that the recent statement termed “confession” has vindicated the PDP in all ramifications against previous claims of corruption by the APC.
The statement reads, “The confession by the Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, that stealing is going on quietly under the President Muhammadu Buhari-led All Progressives Congress (APC), vindicates its stand that the APC is a haven of thieves and treasury looters,” the statement reads.
“The party asserts that the confession also further confirms that the Buhari-led APC administration has been providing official cover for corrupt officials, who have turned government agencies to cash cows and Automated Teller Machines (ATM) for themselves, their cronies, family members and mistresses.
“The situation as presented by Amaechi shows that ‘quiet stealing’ is a policy of the APC administration. This explains why the administration is heavy on propaganda and has failed to prosecute its officials and APC leaders openly indicted for corruption, but only resort to “easing out” such thieves with a pat on the wrist.”
