“We have on how public funds are pulled out of government Agencies in a surreptitious design perfected by an APC leader in connivance with certain individuals in positions of authority close to top persons in the Central Bank of Federal Republic of Nigeria (CBN).

“Nigerians will recall that the PDP had earlier alerted on how the CBN under Mr. Godwin Emefiele as CBN Governor has been turned into the finance department of the APC where APC leaders fraudulently access public funds through nebulous subsidies, shady intervention programmes and discriminatory exchange policies which perpetuate illegal arbitrage system.”  

According to him, the rejected APC has resorted to this underhand to corruptly rake in billions of from the public treasury without consideration for the welfare of Nigerians.

He also said, “This APC’s nefarious action is by its realization that its leaders cannot make donations to the APC coffers as they will be the limits of contribution to political parties as stipulated by law and regulation.

“The APC is a sinking ship with -fated and inchoate sailors on to straw including this shameless attempt to sweep our national treasury. It is regrettable that the APC has shamelessly and soullessly extended their corruption to our electoral process not minding the consequential effect on our democratic system.

 “In any case, such shenanigan and criminal pillaging of our treasury cannot prevent the imminent crushing defeat of the APC in the polls in 2023, Nigerians having realized the fraud and life discounting experiences that the APC represents.

“The PDP calls on the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), the Accountant General of the Federation as well as the Auditor General of the Federation to immediately commence investigation and monitor the movement of funds in Ministries,   Department and Agencies of government so as to protect our national treasury from the APC as we the 2023 general elections.”
