APC Disagrees With PDP Over Adeosun’s Movement Out Of Nigeria
The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), has condemned the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) over allegation that the federal government smuggled former Minister of Finance, Mrs. Kemi Adeosun, out of the country.
Spoesman of the opposition party, Kola Ologbondiyan, had in a statement said government helped Adeosun escape, to prevent her from exposing how a cabal in the Presidency allegedly fleeced the country of trillions of naira.
The statement partly read: “How did Adeosun evade checks by the Force Criminal Investigation Department in Abeokuta and the Ogun State House of Assembly for clearance as commissioner, with her status as a dual citizen, if not armed with inherent tendencies for fraud? It is clear that the Buhari Presidency exploited this factor to swindle the nation, in the finance ministry?”
Reacting to the claim, acting National Publicity Secretary, Yekini Nabena, said it was part of the evil plots of the PDP to destabilise and derail the APC-led administration, stressing that the ruling party should be commended instead of criticising the party.
In another reaction, Personal Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on Social Media, Lauretta Onochie, dismissed PDP allegations as ridiculous.
Onochie challenged the PDP to take whatever fact it has to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) or the police.
“That is absolutely ridiculous. I don’t think anybody believes that utter trash. I think what a responsible opposition should do is to gather their facts and hand it over to the EFCC.
“The police and the EFCC do not belong to the APC. So, if the PDP is sure of what it is saying; any responsible opposition should gather the evidence, get the information correct, and then send it to the EFCC.
“It is not in the media that you indict people. When you have evidence, take it to the police or take it to the EFCC.”
