The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP has come out to say that the endorsement of the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, for Edo gubernatorial election, Osagie Ize-Iyamu by Buhari encourages corruption.
PDP revealed this in a recent statement by its spokesman Kola Ologbondiyan.
According to the party, presenting the flag to the APC candidate in the Presidential Villa is very wrong and it backs the fact that the Buhari administration is all out to battle perceived opponents, not corruption.
He added that supporting someone who is standing trial on allegation of corruption proves that APC is indeed the headquarters of corruption.
His words, “Mr. President ought to have been aware that Ize-Iyamu is standing trial over allegations of corruption, in addition to the declaration by his party’s former national chairman that the APC candidate is a treasury looter, who should not be trusted with the position of the governor of Edo state.
“The presentation of the flag to a person standing trial on allegation of corruption right in the Villa has shown to the world that APC is indeed the headquarters of corruption.”
