The All Progressives Congress (APC) said yesterday that the Peoples Democratic Party PDP has become jittery over the ongoing parliamentary inquisition into the activities of the NDDC as well as the forensic audit of the interventionist agency.
The party further blasted the opposition, saying “its self-indicting statement speaks of the weight of corruption” bedeviling the operations of the commission, adding that successive PDP governments and their cronies institutionalised a culture of contract fraud and other corrupt practices in the country.
The PDP had in a statement on Monday on the NDDC’s probe tagged current administration as a corrupt government.
But APC in a statement by its deputy national publicity secretary, Yekini Nabena, said, “Nigerians can now understand that the PDP is not interested in the current moves by the President Muhammadu Buhari administration to reposition the NDDC but the PDP is dead-scared of the outcome of 2001 to 2019 forensic audit and legislative inquests of the NDDC operations. The PDP is doing everything to sabotage and frustrate the audits.
The statement added: “We must support the forensic audit of the 19 years of the NDDC, which includes the first 4 years of the President Buhari administration as well as well-meaning legislative inquests for the benefit of the Niger Delta region.
