The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Friday accused the President Muhammadu Buhari-led All Progressives Congress (APC) of feeding corrupt Candidates who supposed to be guests of Economic Financial Crime Commission (EFCC).
This was contained in a statement issued by the party Spokesperson, Mr Kola Ologbondiyan.
The statement reads, “The PDP also said the APC has become a laughing stock and a huge joke among Nigerians following the inability of its leaders to resist the imposition of an individual overburdened by corruption allegations as its new leader.
“It is sickening to note that the entire APC Convention is a celebration of corruption organized to crown dishonest and fraudulent individuals,
who ordinarily should be guests at the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) offices across the nation.
“With this, the APC has finally capped itself a party of corruption, deceit and lies, where alleged treasury looters are robed as kings and
where all decency have been thrown overboard for official hooliganism.
“Moreover, Nigerians find it very nauseating that a party, whose Federal Government claims to be fighting corruption, has itself, remained the
biggest beneficiary of corruption and stolen public funds.

“Our investigation had since revealed that governors of APC-controlled states were coerced to divert huge sums from federal bailout funds meant for the wellbeing of the people as well as monies budgeted for development projects in various communities, to fund a failed convention
that promises to sing the Nunc Dimitis of APC.”
The opposition party challenged the APC to “deny reports that funds were syphoned from some federal agencies to finance a wasteful convention.”
PDP added, “Nigerians can now surmise why the Presidency refused to bat an eye over reported syphoning of billions of naira from the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS) and the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) allegedly to fund the activities of the APC.
“Furthermore, Nigerians now have a clue regarding the source of the N671 million reported to have been stolen from the APC account by some of its officials, who allegedly diverted the money into their private accounts.
“The PDP calls on Nigerians to mark the APC National Convention as an epilogue for a party that has caused our nation and her people so much
pain and anguish in the last three years.”
