The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Friday berated President Muhammadu Buhari for endorsing the candidate of All Progressives Congress (APC), Osagie Ize-Iyamu, for the September 19 governorship election.
The party described the endorsement as an act that encourages corruption.
PDP, in a statement by its spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan, condemned the presentation of flag to the APC candidate in the Presidential Villa, saying: “This validates our position that the Buhari administration is fighting perceived opponents and not corruption.
“Mr. President ought to have been aware that Ize-Iyamu is standing trial over allegations of corruption, in addition to declaration by his party’s former national chairman that the APC candidate is a treasury looter, who should not be trusted with the position of the governor of Edo State.
“The presentation of flag to a person standing trial on allegation of corruption right in the Villa has shown to the world that APC is indeed the headquarters of corruption.” (Daily Independent)
