The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to order the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to also probe ex-governors and members of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Prince Uche Secondus, the acting chairman of the PDP, said this at the party’s campaign office in Abuja when he received delegates of the party on Thursday, August 6.
Vanguard reports that Secondus claimed that while leaders of the PDP were being arrested and investigated on corruption charges, APC members and leaders were spared.
“So far, statistics has shown that EFCC has only arrested members of our party, those who have served in previous government.
“But there are APC governors and members, who have served various governments, they have been left alone.
“We believe that a government that is serious with anti-corruption crusade cannot be one sided or selective. It should be holistic,’’ Secondus said.
“We have seen on the pages of newspapers allegation from Lagos and Rivers states on the ex-governors. What is EFCC doing to those allegations? ”
He called on the president to admonish the EFCC to balance its investigation so one part will not feel they are being unduly targeted.
Meanwhile, the senate PDP caucus has urged President Buhari to intervene in the affairs of the Department of State Services before they destroyed the tenets of democracy.
