The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP) Prince Uche Secondus has accused the Federal government of entering into an agreement with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and the police to cause chaos on the platform of the PDP ahead of the 2019 in order to force the state governors into a deal.

Secondus, in a statement on Wednesday, said the move is part of the design by the Buhari’s administration to disable and cause damage to the PDP states, steering it from its focus of reclaiming power and rescruing Nigeria from the inept rule of the APC.

He singled out Bayelsa state that had eight police commissioners in three years as well as Akwa Ibom and Ebonyi states where the police leadership in the states have been changed randomly.

“In most PDP states despite the governors being the statutory chief security officers, police commissioners have set up parallel structures to undermine the security of the states just to satisfy their pay masters,” he said.

“They have resolved to inject crisis in PDP-controlled states and ensure that our governors who are refusing to play ball are permanently distracted for their re elections. They have deployed huge cash in these states to either use labour or state legislators to inject crisis, frighten the governors and force them to do a deal with them.”

He alleged that anti-graft agencies have been “co-opted into this nefarious project” to make it look as if it is its anti- corruption programme.

Secondus accused the Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) Ibrahim Magu of being political and deeply involved in the re-election of Muhammadu Buhari. 

The PDP Chairman queried why the Executive governor of Kano State, Abdullahi Ganduje who was accused of collecting bribe from contractors had not been investigated.

“Nigerians should ask the EFCC Chairman Ibrahim Magu who is busy campaigning for President Muhammedu Buhari and wearing his campaign badge why only PDP governors are on their radar,” he said.

“Nigerians should ask EFCC why they are looking away on what happened in Kano that everybody watched, if Governor Ibrahim Ganduje had been a PDP would EFCC have kept mum?
“Nigerians should find out why is it that only PDP Finance Commissioners are visitors to EFCC while their APC counterparts where corruption is obvious are glorified.

“Only PDP governors are performing and carrying out people oriented projects across the country as can be witnessed by all but they are the only one being harassed by Magu and his team.

“We are aware on good authority that Magu has vowed to make the re- election of President Buhari his personal project even if Nigerians appear to have turned their back on them.”
