PDP shared insurgency funds – APC

Published

The ruling APC says it was unbothered by the criticisms coming from opposition PDP in the wake of the rescues of an American citizen by U.S. Special Forces on Nigerian soil.

Yekini Nabena, the APC spokesman said the PDP could not understand that combating terrorism and other emerging cross border crimes require international collaborations because it was busy frittering funds meant for counter insurgency operations during its time in power.

“We don’t expect the PDP to understand this international best practice going by its evil penchant of diverting and sharing counter insurgency funds to its political cronies,” Mr. Nabena said on Monday while reacting to the PDP allegation in Abuja.

The PDP, in an earlier statement by Kola Ologbondiyan, its spokesman said that the development confirmed that the APC-led federal government could not secure the territorial integrity of the country.

Mr. Ologbondiyan also said that the development further confirms that the Buhari-led administration could not arrest the wave of insecurity ravaging parts of the country.

The APC spokesman countered that unlike previous PDP governments, the President Muhammadu Buhari-led government was not “sleeping on the wheel” on serious national concerns.
