Peoples’ Democratic Party faults All Progressives Congress claims of looted funds

The Peoples’ Democratic Party-PDP has described as reckless, irresponsible and highly provocative the statement by the ruling All Progressives Congress-APC, with a controversial list of alleged looted funds.

In a statement by the opposition party’s spokesman, Olisa Metuh, released in response to the APC claims, the PDP said the party bandied imaginary figures against the previous administration to suit a scandalous purpose.

The spokesman for the APC, Lai Mohammed, said the party saw the necessity of reminding Nigerians the kind of massive looting of the treasury that took place in the past few years, so they can better appreciate the seriousness of the issue at stake, but the PDP said APC had again exhibited its desperation for public approval.

The opposition party further stressed that instead of engaging in unnecessary playing to the gallery, the APC-led government should get serious with the fight against corruption by investigating and prosecuting corrupt persons and urged the APC to move on with the demands of governance, especially in fulfilling their numerous campaign promises for which they were voted into office at the centre.
