The Presidency says the People’s Democratic Party, has no moral ground to question President Muhammadu Buhari’s war against corruption.

In a statement, the Presidential spokesman Garba Shehu said that the PDP which he claimed has been struggling to clear its name from alleged deals with the underworld in Dubai and the United States has, to its surprise, found the voice to attack the anti-corruption war of the Muhammadu Buhari administration following the President’s endorsement of the candidate of the All Progressives Congress for the governorship election in Edo State, Osagie Ize-Iyamu,

 

Shehu said the party has forgotten its own history and antecedents, asking the opposition party to first withdraw the governorship nominations it gave to Ahmadu Fintiri and Bala Mohammed of Adamawa and Bauchi States respectively before it opens its mouth and talks on the efforts of the present administration in fighting corruption.

 

He said both PDP governors were actually on bail from criminal trial on several counts of fraud and embezzlement.

 

The presidential spokesman reminded the PDP that under the country‘s laws, only the courts can convict, adding that “A suspect remains a suspect until conviction.

 

The Presidential spokesman said the current administration’s cleansing exercise of the government, politics and economy in line with the zero tolerance for corruption, will not be distracted.
