PDP Supports PMB’s Anti-Corruption Move, Warns Against Victimization

The opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) supported the anti-corruption war by President Muhammadu Buhari, noting however, that the war should not be blind to the impunity of the present leaders of the country in terms of borrowing and spending without recourse to the statutory organs of government.

The party also insisted on due process in order to ensure that it is not used as a guise to victimize innocent citizens and curtail the freedom of Nigerians.

The PDP in a statement issued by its national publicity secretary, Olisa Metuh, said the clarification has become necessary to remove any misconception that it is against the decision of the present administration to probe some past officials of government because they are PDP members.

“The PDP supports the decision of the federal government to fight corruption in our country. However, we make bold to state that it should not be used as a guise to victimise innocent citizens”.

“Democracy has come to stay in Nigeria and no citizen, irrespective of political, religious or ethnic affiliation should be denied access to due process and the rule of law in the process.”
