In a statement made available to newsmen in Abuja by its national publicity secretary, Chief Olisa Metuh, the party said it was not averse to the fight against corruption. According to PDP, “the onus lies on the APC-led Federal Government to wage a credible holistic anti-corruption war by first purging itself of unclean association and coming out clear on sleazes already going on in government quarters since it took office in May. “Whereas the PDP restates its respect for the person and office of the president as well as our support for the war against corruption, it is incumbent on us to alert Nigerians to the prevailing circumstances around this government which are capable of fundamentally undermining good governance if left unchecked. “Charity, they say, begins at home. For the APC-led government, it has now become a question of ‘physician, heal thyself.’ Every discerning mind knows that this administration is not executing a credible holistic war against corruption, because it is a product of corruption, surrounded by corrupt persons; a factor apparently responsible for its obvious blind eyes to huge sleazes now being perpetrated in government agencies by persons claiming closeness to the president. “It is, indeed, alarming that in so short a time, an administration that rode to power on claims of anti-corruption credentials has broken the records in constitutional violations and abuse of regulations, especially in its adamant stance to run a government without the statutory components of a full cabinet, thereby creating loopholes for APC interests to invade key government agencies for inflated concessions, allocations, jobs and other financial sleazes,” the party said.]]>
