This call was made by the PDP National Executive Committee (NEC) on Tuesday, May 17, 2016.
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has called on the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to release all its members in the custody of the anti-graft agency.
The National Executive Committee (NEC) of the party, in a statement signed by the head of publicity, Chinwe Nnorom, said “NEC observed and condemned in strong terms the arbitrary arrest and detention of PDP members on account of Party campaign funds by the Government of President Muhammadu Buhari and urged Nigerians and the International Community to request the APC Administration to investigate the campaign funds of its Party, the All Progressive Congress (APC) as some accusations of misuse of public funds are also levelled against some APC governors and stakeholders.”
The statement also said “NEC further decried the selective probe of PDP members by the anti-graft agency under the administration of the APC as a case of witch-hunt and unnecessary oppression aimed at silencing members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
“NEC therefore demand the immediate release of all members of the PDP in the custody of the anti-graft agency, the EFCC, or charge them to Court without further delay.”
