‘Endorsement of Jonathan is Endorsement of Corruption’ – Mohammed
The National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Alhaji Lai Mohammed, has said plans by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) not to probe its erring governors for endorsing President Goodluck Jonathan for the 2015 election is an endorsement of corruption by the ruling party.
Addressing reporters yesterday at a rally to welcome members of the PDP who decamped to the APC at Ijora Badia in Lagos, the APC spokesman said the condition given by the governors was a challenge on the collective will of the people.
He said: “The governors gave President Jonathan a condition that the EFCC and ICPC should not go after them. This is a dangerous sign for the country. It shows that a continuation of the PDP government beyond 2015 will incapacitate the economy which is currently at its lowest ebb.”
While promising that the APC will give Nigeria a credible leadership that will transform the country in all sectors, the APC chieftain also commended the party’s elected governors for strictly adhering to the manifesto of the party which is basically the people’s welfare.
He said: “The APC boasts nationwide support and our governors’ performance is excellent. The fact that people of Nigeria want a change is the reason why our party is waxing stronger and we will form the next government in 2015.
“The endorsement of Jonathan is the endorsement of corruption. The conditions attached to the endorsement that all the governors will have immunity outside office from being probed even when they are found wanting is a sad note for Nigeria,” he stated. Also speaking, APC chairman in Lagos State, Otunba Dele Ajomale, urged the new members to feel at home and work for the progress of the party.
