Stop witch-hunting opposition parties, PDP governors warn EFCC

Governors elected on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, yesterday, cautioned the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission against harassing opposition parties and their officials over some phoney allegations.

The warning came in the wake of the recent invitation extended to the party’s National Auditor, Adamu Mustapha, national organizing secretary, Col. Austin Akobundu and the Director of Finance by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, over allegations of financial indiscipline.

In a statement signed by the Director-General of the PDP Governors Forum, Cyril “CID” Maduabum, the PDP governors noted that the anti-graft body should and must not be used to cow opposition in the land.

The statement read: “The recent invitation of officials of the PDP by the EFCC acting on a spurious petition by a disgruntled former member of PDP raises questions on the seriousness and impartiality of the anti-graft agency to do its work.
