The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) is fighting a bias war against corruption, targeting states ruled by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), says National Chairman Uche Secondus.
Secondus made the allegation in a statement on Thursday where he regreted that the Commission “has remained beclouded in their bias and has refused to heed the advisories from well meaning Nigerians and international watchers including the recent one from the British High Commissioner to Nigeria Mr. Paul Arkwright for them not to take sides with any political party ahead of the 2019 general election.”
According to him, “Rather than encourage states who are seriously involved in the delivery of democracy dividend to their people, the envious ruling APC has been conniving with the relevant agencies to be harassing contractors ostensibly to frustrate and slow them down in their development strides.
“Contractors in Taraba and Rivers states as well as other PDP states are being harassed by EFCC operatives and are being arm twisted to implicate PDp leaders.
“Intelligence is available to the party that the ruling party and the federal government have resolved to ensure that PDP states are permanently put on their toes so as not to get their bearing ahead of 2019.
“It would be clear to the world and discerning minds that PDP governors are doing fantastic jobs executing projects that touch the lives of their people unlike their APC counterparts.
“In some states like Taraba where projects have been halted as a result of EFCC meddlesomeness, the unemployment situation has worsened.”
