National Publicity Secretary of Peoples Democratic Party Oliseh Metuh drums support for the ongoing fight against corruption.
The National Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Oliseh Metuh has drummed support for the ongoing fight against corruption by the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari, saying corruption is crime against the Nigeria people and the constitution.
Metu who is the Kogi state congress Chairman stated this yesterday during the state congress election in Lokoja, saying that the PDP is in support of any move that will check corruption in the country.
According to him, the PDP appreciate the move by president Muhammadu Buhari to fight corruption in the country, assuring that as long as their hands are clean, they have nothing to fear in the ongoing war against corruption to sanitize the system.
“Even if the PDP are being probed, we support the probe because people are being held to account for their stewardship in office but we dont want political lynching. It is time for every one to be accountable and transparent.
We would not quarrel even if it is only PDP members that are being targeted, all that we are saying is that due process must be followed and obey the law that every one innocent until proven guilty,” he said.
Metu said the party is in support of probe of public officers whether they are PDP or not and that the party would not protect any of its member who soiled his hands, saying that the time has come for people to be held accountable for their stewardship, because if we succeed in recovering some money it is not the success of the president but to the economy of Nigeria.
He assured the delegates that the election would be transparent and that a credible candidate would emerge through due process. “ When you are down you cannot go lower but look at your mistakes and correct them to build a stronger party.
We are now learning the rope from the ground that we are now so that the people would support us to climb to the top,” he said.
Also speaking, governor Idris Wada called on the delegates to maintain peace during the congress so as to produce leaders that would build a stronger party to win the forthcoming governorship election. He said after the congress the party would surmount its problem and come out stronger.
