PDP Condemns SGF’s Thanksgiving Party
The Peoples Democratic Party of Nigeria has condemned the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, (SGF) Engr. Babachir David Lawal’s Sunday thanksgiving party.
In a statement by the party national publicity secretary, Chief Olisa Metuh, the party said the thanksgiving party shows that the All Progressives Congress led administration is full of hypocrisy.
The statement read “The hypocrisy of this administration came to the fore with the show of insensitivity to the mood of the nation as copiously demonstrated in Saturday’s ostentatious thanksgiving party (with hundreds of millions of naira spent) by the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, (SFG) Engr. Babachir David Lawal, at a time the people of the North East geo-political zone, where he hails from, are being ravaged by insurgency.”
Metuh added that President Muhammadu Buhari is using his anti-corruption war to witch-hunt PDP members.
He said “Whereas the PDP has over time restated its support for a credible, holistic fight against corruption, unfolding events have confirmed our position that this administration is only using the anti-corruption posture as a tool to witch-hunt PDP members and perceived political opponents of APC government.”
He urged the President to “end this dictatorial proclivity of selective anti-corruption war that has characterized the APC government.”
