Prosecute Magu, Pondei, Others Indicted For Corruption, PDP Tells Buhari

By Augustine Akhilomen

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has advised President Muhammadu Buhari to deal decisively with anyone found in the act of corruption.

In a statement signed by the PDP National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, in Abuja, on Saturday, the party appreciates Buhari’s declaration admitting corruption within his regime.

However, they urged him to match his words with action by immediately charging those already indicted to court such as the suspended acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Ibrahim Magu, as well as indicted officials of the Niger Delta Development Commission “and other agencies.

“The PDP notes that Mr. President’s acceptance that there was an abuse of trust by persons in his government had vindicated its position that the Buhari administration is replete with treasury looters, who had been enjoying the cover of government.

“The party, however, asserts that unless the President matches his assertion with the corresponding action against officials of his government as well as leaders of the All Progressives Congress who are indicted for corruption, his declaration will still end up as one of the glib promises made by the APC and Buhari Presidency since 2015.

“It is public knowledge that the APC administration had provided cover for loads of corrupt individuals in its fold as none of the government officials and APC leaders, who have been openly indicted for corruption, abuse of office and treasury looting, have been held culpable and prosecuted.“
