PDP mocks APC, Presidency over Oshiomhole’ s bribery allegation

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has mocked the Presidency and the
ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) for shielding the party's
national chairman, Adams Oshiomhole, from investigation and
prosecution over his alleged complicity in the bribery scandal that
trailled the APC primaries.

The PDP made mockery of the current administration's fight against
corruption in a statement signed and issued to journalists on Thursday
by its national publicity secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, in Abuja

The opposition party further charged the National Intelligence Agency
(NIA) and INTERPOL to help track down Oshiomhole, who is reported to
be away on a private overseas trip, and bring him to face the law.

The statement reads: "The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) charges the
National Intelligence Agency (NIA) and INTERPOL to help track down the
factional National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC),
Adams Oshiomhole, believed to be on the run outside the country since
his reported interrogation by the Department of State Services (DSS)
over alleged corruption charges.

"The party notes that Adams Oshiomhole's swift flight out of the
country, at the heat of the investigation, is suspect and goes to
confirm allegations that the Muhammadu Buhari Presidency is shielding
him from prosecution for fear that his investigation would implicate
certain interests at the Presidency and the APC.

"It is ludicrous that the APC, in its lying proclivities, believes
that by dismissing Oshiomhole's arrest as a rumour and aiding him to
momentarily flee the country, it would succeed in getting him off the
DSS hook as well as sweeping the matter out of public discourse with
its famished broom.

"No! Nigerians are already aware that Oshiomhole has not denied his
investigation including his reported confession that the Presidency
was in the loop of all his actions.

"The PDP had always cautioned Adams Oshiomhole of his unbridled
arrogance, lust for power and alleged embezzlement of public funds for
which he must surely have his day in the hands of the law.

"The PDP, therefore, demands that APC and the Buhari Presidency must
immediately produce Adams Oshiomhole to face investigation and
prosecution in our courts."
