The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has alleged that most leaders of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) are beneficiaries of corruption.
The party said it was in support of the federal government on fight against corruption but however said due process must be followed to ensure that it is not used as a guise to victimize innocent citizens.
PDP national publicity secretary, Chief Olisa Metuh in a statement on Tuesday said President Muhammadu Buhari is not corrupt.
He said the clarification became necessary to remove any misconception that the PDP was against the decision of the present administration to probe some past officials of government because they are PDP members.
The PDP also advised President Buhari, as leader of the APC to remove the "log" in the eyes of his party, stressing that it support Buhari's commitment to removing the speck from the eyes of others.
“We make bold to state that he who comes to equity must come with clean hands. In that regard therefore, we advise members of the APC blowing the horn ahead of the cart to keep quiet because many of them have been major beneficiaries of corruption and sleazes associated with themselves and their allies, especially one of them who as a disguised errand boy of a well-known APC leader is a major beneficiary of the largesse of perpetrators of corruption.
“Apart from Mr. President, who for now, is not associated with any sleaze or corrupt activity in this democracy, most APC leaders are still those who as governors, ministers and labour leaders have been the worst corrupt set of Nigerians ever to bestride the political landscape of the country.
“It is a great miscarriage of perception therefore for APC leaders who are perpetrators of sleazes and corrupt acts to attempt to deceive Nigerians with imaginary holiness in this anti-corruption war by the President.
“In the same vein, we want to state categorically that the anti-corruption war, whilst targeted at the immediate past administration should not by any means be blind to the impunity of the present leaders of the country either in terms of borrowing and spending
without recourse to the statutory arms and organs of government and dictates of transparency and accountability, or in terms of nepotism in appointments in key institutions such as INEC and the DSS," the party said.
