PDP Expresses Support For Anti-corruption War

The People’s Democratic Party, PDP, has indicated its willingness to support the current administration’s anti-corruption campaign.

The party also said it would not protect any of its members who is found to have engaged in corrupt practices while in office.



    The national publicity secretary of the PDP, Oliseh Metuh, who said this on Thursday, in Lokoja, however, asked the government to follow due process in its campaign against corruption and not witch-hunt the opposition.

    Metuh noted that all well meaning Nigerians were fully in support of Buhari’s anti-corruption campaign, stressing that no PDP member whose hands are clean had anything to fear from any corruption investigation.

    “Even if the PDP members are being probed, we support the probes because people are being held to account for their stewardships in office but we don’t want political lynching,” he said.

    Metuh said the country would be in a better position when corruption is eradicated and the rule of law is allowed to operate without hindrance.
