‘Buhari’s Govt Will Be Open For Probe After Tenure’- Oyegun

The national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has said that President Muhammadu Buhari’s led government will be open for probe after his tenure.


The National Chairman APC, Chief John Oyegun, said the damages done to the nation by the People Democratic Party (PDP) government needed to be probed.

Addressing newsmen at the party’s national Secretariat on Monday in Abuja, Oyegun who was commenting on the allegation by the opposition party that the fight against corruption is being targeted at PDP members alone, stated that “We are investigating yesterday, let tomorrow investigate us.”

He said: “People tend to give the impression that we are so concentrated on corruption and nothing is happening. I tell you that a lot is happening which will bring cheers to Nigerians in the next few months. It was 16 years of solid PDP control only.

“If we want to clean out this country, if we want to save this country, we must be serious about it and wherever the train goes, we will also go. There is no two ways about it. All these attempt to divert attention from the reality will not succeed. If you are caught stealing from this nation, you must account for it.

“We must be ready to put up with the inconvenience of getting this country out of the current level of decadence that has almost destroyed the fabric of this country.”

The party chairman also used the medium to debunked reports that APC had gone to the presidency to beg for financial assistance.

He said: “There has been talks in the media about the state of our finances. That goes to tell you that just like the economy, the party is suffering the strain of funding. It also tells you that we are not a party that draws funds from either security votes or from any government agency.

“We have not asked for rescue from the President because that is not part of his national duties. In fact, there is no funds from which he can draw to support the party in the way it has been done in the past.

“The party had to come out with a fresh thinking on how to raise resources for its operations. The plan is ready and it will go into operation in a few months from now.”
