Uche Secondus, the newly elected National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has accused President Muhammadu Buhari-led All Progressives Congress (APC) government of building more prisons for its members.
Secondus, who said this in Abuja at the opening of a two-day retreat for members of the newly elected National Working Committee of the party, however, warned that Buhari and his party members may eventually end up in those prisons.
The PDP also alleged that the government was planning to descend on PDP members in 2018.
He said, “We learnt that they are building more prisons. Let them go ahead and build more . They will be the one to stay there.
“We learnt that they are coming after our members in January. Let them continue. How many people will they put in jail?”
The PDP chairman added that the former President Olusegun Obasanjo set up institutions that “are currently waging a war against graft in the country” and did not spare members of the PDP then, unlike now when he alleged that the ruling party “protects its members.”
“We stabilised the structure to fight corruption. Obasanjo, a PDP President, started the fight against corruption.
“He fought our members. But unlike now, no matter how corrupt you are, if you don’t want to be arrested, just defect to the APC,” he said.
