PDP Tackles APC over Alleged N6bn Convention Budget
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has accused the Presidency of forcing governors elected on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC), to use public funds to finance the ruling party’s forthcoming national convention.
The PDP also allged that some APC governors had moved in huge sums of money from public coffers for the convention.
“More saddening is that the money is being pulled from funds derived from federal bailouts and other monies budgeted for critical development projects in various communities, many of which have now been stalled, leaving the people deprived and impoverished.
“It is appalling that this is the same party and administration that have been accusing others of corruption and publishing fabricated ‘looters’ lists’ just to deceive Nigerians and divert public attention from their sleazes.
“We challenge the APC to publish the names of the governors, ministers and other APC political office holders, who have already brought in money as well as inform the nation on why they are moving the money in cash contrary to financial regulations, if the source is not proceeds of corrupt activities.
