The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has alleged that ‎the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) is holding today's national convention with “looted funds.”

The PDP in a statement yesterday by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan said the APC has become a laughing stock both in Nigeria and abroad.

“The APC is organising its national convention with funds stolen from public coffers. It is sickening to note that the entire APC Convention is a celebration of corruption organised to crown dishonest and fraudulent individuals, who ordinarily should be guests at the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) offices across the nation.

“With this, the APC has finally capped itself a party of corruption, deceit and lies, where alleged treasury looters are robbed as kings and where all decency have been thrown overboard for official hooliganism.

“Moreover, Nigerians find it very nauseating that a party, whose federal ‎government claims to be fighting corruption, has itself, remained the biggest beneficiary of corruption and stolen public funds.

“Our investigation had since revealed that governors of APC-controlled states were coerced to divert huge sums from federal bailout funds meant for the well-being of the people as well as monies budgeted for development projects in various communities, to fund a failed convention that promises to sing the Nunc Dimitis of APC.

“We also challenge the APC to deny reports that funds were syphoned from some federal agencies to finance a wasteful convention.

“Nigerians can now surmise why the Presidency refused to bat an eye over reported syphoning of billions of naira from the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS) and the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) allegedly to fund the activities of the APC,” the opposition party said.
