APC, Labour Senators Back Buhari On Corruption

APC-LABOUR

Following the recent decision by members of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in the Senate, to withdraw their support for the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration, Senators from the All Progressive Congress, APC, and the Labour Party have declared total and unflinching for the president.

In a communiqué released on Thursday, the joint APC and Labour party caucus in the senate said their support for the president was aimed at actualizing the promised change that Nigerians voted for during the last general election.

The statement signed by Sola Adeyeye on behalf of the APC/Labour Party Senate Caucus reads, “We are shocked at the totally partisan reaction of our colleagues from the minority party, PDP, to the on-going investigations and recovery of public funds meant for the prosecution of the war against insurgency,” adding that the current anti-corruption drive was not a partisan affair as the PDP alleged.

The communiqué went further to say, “Seeking to recover diverted public funds is neither dictatorial nor against the rule of law. In all the actions, programmes and policies of the PMB-led APC Federal Government, no PDP member has been unjustly arrested or imprisoned on mere allegations,

“As law abiding and patriotic citizens, we cherish the rule of law and the separation of powers among the different arms of government. Political interference based on partisan consideration must be eschewed.”
