Buhari’s Anti-Corruption Fight: John Oyegun Breaks Silence
Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, the national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has spoken up about President Muhammadu Buhari’s anti-corruption fight, stating that the war was not one-sided as a few of the APC party leaders have been called for questioning.
Oyegun, who stated this in a recent interview with Punch newspaper, debunked claims that PDP members were being targeted in the anti-corruption war.
He said: “Nobody in business who contributed a lot of money has been dragged to any tribunal because he gave PDP funds. Public funds, public resources, money that belongs to you, me and the people of this country were stolen and diverted.
“Anybody who steals from the treasury either to fund a campaign, or to put in his pocket or to buy an estate in every part of the world would be asked questions. It must not be allowed.
“Nobody must be allowed to get away with that. It is not the same with campaign funding. We are not investigating PDP campaign funds.
“It just happens that as at now, those whose hands are found in the till happen to be preponderantly in the PDP.
“But you can see that a lot of other investigations are ongoing and quite a few involve some APC leaders,”
