The Peoples Democratic party (PDP) says the release of the associate of President Muhammadu Buhari and APC chieftain, Brig. General Jafaru Isa (retired) by the EFCC barely eight hours after arrest while its spokesman Chief Olisa Metuh remains detained and without being charged to court since last Tuesday, vindicates its position that this Federal Government is not fighting corruption but on a clamp-down mission on PDP leaders.
According to The Cable, former Chairman of Daar communications, Raymond Dokpesi says the the current $2.1 billion arms deal fund does not exist and is a grand plan by the current administration to discredit PDP. Dokpesi who was arrested and later released on bail in connection with the arms deal scandal, said this while speaking at his investiture as the patron of the PDP Youth Vanguard and honour as ‘the freedom fighter of PDP.
“So much political water has passed under the bridge since the general election of April 2015, so much have been said about our members, many of whom have been publicly vilified even without being heard. Even as I speak to you now the relentless pursuit of our members across the country is being intensified and I can say to some measure of certainty that a lot more light in store for the PDP and its members”.
