The All Progressives Congress (APC) has accused the opposition Peoples Democratic party (PDP) and some of its governors of having several things to hide following their reactions to the recent Department of State Security (DSS) raid on some allegedly corrupt judges.
The APC while reacting to the statement by the PDP and some opposition governors urged the DSS who view their comments as a red flag that must not be ignored as it continues to carry out the anti corruption policies of the President Muhammadu Buhari-led APC government.
The party in a statement issued on Sunday by its National Secretary, Mai Mala Buni, however, called on the security agencies to ensure that their actions conforms with the rule of law, while urging them not be intimidated by antics of the PDP and their governors.
“The President Muhammadu Buhari APC-led administration strictly respects the principle of the Rule of Law and also adheres to the constitutional provisions of Separation of Power between the three arms of government.
“While the party calls on all security agencies to respect and be guided by the rule of law in carrying out its constitutional duties, the APC finds the actions of some PDP governors and the reckless unsubstantiated allegations levelled by the PDP on President Muhammadu Buhari as the architect of the SSS raids curious and suspicious.
“The APC suspects that the PDP and the Ekiti and Rivers State governors, Ayodele Fayose and Nyesom Wike, have something to hide. This is a red flag that security agencies must not ignore.
“The repeated allegations that ongoing corruption investigations and trials are politically-motivated by the President and the APC are baseless.”
The APC urges Nigerians not to be distracted by the PDP and their agents plot to discredit the hugely-successful war against corruption.
“For the umpteenth time, the PDP does not have the luxury of dictating how the current administration carries out its legitimate duty of catching looters as long as it conforms to the rule of law”, the party noted.
