Prof. Itse Sagay, Chairman, Presidential Advisory Committee against Corruption, expresses his disappointment at Peoples democratic Party, saying the Economic and Financial Crimes commission, EFCC, recovers stolen funds from the former minister of Petroleum Resources, Diezani Alison-Madueke every day.

Reacting to the 19th anniversary celebration of the party, Dailypost reports that Sagay, who told the former ruling Peoples Democratic Party to remember that Alison-Madueke was one of its products, called on the former ruling party to celebrate it with sober reflection instead of boasting about its achievements.

He asserted that the Buhari administration had recovered almost a trillion naira alone this year from officials who served under the PDP. He therefore, asked the PDP to apologise to Nigerians and turn a new leaf as this was the only way to regain the confidence of Nigerians.

Sagay added, “I am disappointed in the PDP. If they are celebrating 19 years, they should celebrate with caution and give the nation an assurance that they would not bring such negative impact on our nation again and they have turned a new leaf.

“Yes, President Obasanjo was the one who proposed the establishment of the EFCC and the ICPC? After Nuhu Ribadu left the EFCC, what became of the EFCC? These people just neutralised these agencies and turned this country into an ATM from which they kept on withdrawing money until there was nothing left.

“So, they destroyed our economy; their greed was overwhelming. If you look at Diezani for instance, there is no day that goes by that money is not recovered from her. In Thursday’s papers, it was reported that the EFCC had recovered about half a trillion naira from these people.”
