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 charges the All Progressives Congress (APC) to stop lying to Nigerians after its governors have been busted for diverting N6bn meant for the development of states under their control to finance their forthcoming national convention. APC is corrupt,” the PDP said.

The PDP also allged that some APC governors had ‎moved in huge sums of money from public coffers for the convention.

 In a statement issued by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, PDP also said it was unbecoming that an administration that has been accusing others of corruption and publishing fabricated ‘looters’ lists’ would try to deceive Nigerians and divert public attention from their sleazes.

APC is corrupt. Our investigation revealed that many of the APC governors are being coerced under the orders of the presidency and the leadership of the party to move in huge sums of money in cash into the APC coffers, bulk of which have already been frittered away by corrupt leaders in the party and agents of the presidency.

“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.
