We Set Up EFCC To Fight Corruption, Not To Entertain Nigerians — PDP

Published

on

The People Democratic Party, PDP, has charged the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, to stop what it described as a circus show, noting the agency had drifted from the focussed body established in 2003 by Olusegun Obasanjo, who became President on its platform.

Reacting to the  monies discovered by the EFCC in an apartment  in Ikoyi, Lagos, PDP alleged that under President Muhammadu Buhari, the anti-corruption fight had lost focus.

The opposition party said it had become embarrassing for the anti-graft agency to keep finding money in apartments and offices without disclosing the identity of the owners.

The party accused the EFCC of refusing to reveal the “true identity” of owner of the flat where the money was discovered.

It also urged the anti-graft agency to tell Nigerians the owners of the funds discovered at Kaduna airport, Victoria Island and Balogun market in Lagos state.

The party tweeted yesterday: “The PDP administration established the EFCC to fight corruption effectively & efficiently and not to entertain Nigerians.”

“The anti-corruption fight under the APC govt has become comedy. The EFCC now discovers funds in apartments and offices that have no owners.”

“It is preposterous to imagine that the last four seizures coincidentally have no known owners. This is most unfortunate and embarrassing.

“Who are the owners of N49 millionh at Kaduna Airport, N448 million at LEGICO Mall, N250 million in Balogun Market and $43.4m, N23.2m & £27,000 in Osborne Road?

“The EFCC must also tell Nigerians the total amount they have recovered in the last two years & provide verifiable accounts of recovered funds.”

Simi who admitted to being clueless as to how the process of legislation works in this country as many others are, has advised everyone to bring whatever they have to the table; lawyers, tech people, etc., and those who know better to come forward to speak and disseminate information so that everyone can be well informed.

The ‘No Longer Beneficial’ crooner also stated that we need access to our reps and senators; their phone numbers, email addresses, etc., should be made known so that constituent members can reach them and prevail on them to truly represent their interests there.

Simi advised that though it doesn’t look like it right now, there are gains to this awakening and Nigeria will prevail.

Some Nigerians Think I Am Weak - Buhari

President of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari slammed some Nigerians yesterday for taking his swift response in disbanding the Special Anti-robbery Squad of the Nigeria Police as weakness.

Stating this during his National address on Thursday evening, October 22, 2020, Buhari said sadly, the promptness with which he acted seemed to have been termed as a sign of weakness.

Read his statement below;

“As a democratic government, we listened to, and carefully evaluated the five-point demands of the protesters. And, having accepted them, we immediately scrapped SARS, and put measures in place to address the other demands of our youth.

On approving the termination of SARS, I already made it clear that it was in line with our commitment to the implementation of extensive Police reforms.

Sadly, the promptness with which we have acted seemed to have been misconstrued as a sign of weakness and twisted by some for their selfish unpatriotic interests”.
