The Peoples Democratic Party has demanded the speedy prosecution of officials of the All Progressives Congress – led regime indicted for alleged corruption.
It said the declaration by the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari ( retd.) , that some officials of his regime have been found wanting on the issue of corruption vindicated the party on its principled opposition to the ongoing looting and re- looting of our common patrimony.
This was contained in a statement titled: “ PDP To Buhari : Prosecute Corrupt Persons In Your Government…Says President’ s Assertion Vindicates Its Stance, ” signed by the PDP National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, in Abuja , on Saturday .
Ologbondiyan said the current delay in prosecuting “ the suspended acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission , Ibrahim Magu, as well as indicted officials of the Niger Delta Development Commission “ and other agencies, does not convey any sense of commitment by the administration to fight against corruption .
He said the PDP welcomed the president’s declaration admitting corruption within his regime but urged him to match his words with action by immediately charging those already indicted to court.
