The All Progressives Congress has said the opposition Peoples Democratic Party was scared of the ongoing forensic audit of the Niger Delta Development Commission, hence its attack on the anti-corruption war of the current regime.
This was contained in a statement titled “PDP Dead-Scared of NDDC 19-Year Forensic Audit, Legislative Inquest – APC
…No Sacred Cows in Corruption Fight,” signed by APC Deputy National Publicity Secretary, Yekini Nabena, in Abuja, on Tuesday.
In the statement, the PDP accused the APC regime of silence in the face of ongoing corruption in several government agencies.
Nabena said, “Nigerians can now understand that the PDP is not interested in the current moves by the President Muhammadu Buhari administration to reposition the NDDC but the PDP is dead-scared of the outcome of the 2001 to 2019 forensic audit and legislative inquests of the NDDC operations. The PDP is doing everything to sabotage and frustrate the audits.”
Nabena said the APC refused to trade words on how successive PDP administrations and their cronies “institutionalised a culture of contract fraud and other corrupt practices” which has robbed the Niger Delta region of badly-needed development.
“We will rather monitor and await the findings of the ongoing audits,” he added.
